1975 VW Beetle (Regular)
Baja Style EV $6,500 OBO
This is a VW
Beetle EV conversion that has been converted into a truck that runs at 48 volts
using the 4845 Alltrax Controller and the Jack & Heinze G-29
Aircraft Starter / Generator Shunt Motor.
With this set up the clutch is used to shift gears. There
are eight 6 volt T-105 batteries that are installed in this vehicle
running at 48 volts. It comes with a onboard Capacitive Charger
battery charger and a 1-2 amp float charger for the accessory battery. It
has installed a DC volt meter and amp meter on the dash for easy readings.
The motor can handle up to 250 degree F., but monitoring the temperature
is a good idea can be as easy as buying cooking temperature monitor and
taping it on. The Alltrax controller will shut off at 175 degree F
if it gets to hot which can be adjusted up or down with a laptop
computer using a RS-232 cable (with a USB connection) that can be bought
at any Radio Shack or online. This car will out perform any GEM car by its speed being that they only
get 25 MPH top. Top speed that was obtained with this vehicle was 49
MPH but average speeds will be around 40-45 mph on the flat stretch. With a full
charge on these batteries it got 25 miles driving conservatively.
This can change according to your driving habits, terrain, outside
temperatures, etc. The batteries are used and the radio
doesn't work. The radio might just need speakers to be hooked up
but haven't tested it to know. The tires are marginal and the
bottom pan has been repaired, but it is solid, with new undercoat
underneath added. It has a new two part base coat clear
paint on its body, which is some of the best paint out there to use.
Horn, lights, turn signals, hazard lights and brakes all work. There is
a hot wire to the back ready for a hookup of a light for a license plate
if wanting to add it. It has installed a DC volt meter and amp
meter on the dash for easy readings. This conversion could be upgraded
in the future, using higher voltage EV components and having another four
slots for batteries available behind the seats next to the other
batteries. Contact Allen with

Will give phone number if wanting to finalize a sell with this vehicle.
