EV Mustang 1966
Chris Jones Mustang 1966 EV
Chris Jone's 1996 Convertable. Perhpas not the perfect car to Electrify, but he had rebuilt it prior to his marriage and couldn't part with it. The V6 and transmision made up a large part of the weight, so replacing that weight with an adequate battery pack did not go over the total wet curb weight of the vehicle.

The rear end - not the re-use of the old Gas filler as the power connect.
Chris has made up a mass of adaptors to allow him to plug into practically any US electrical socket he comes accros. So far he has had to use at least half of them.
