Electric Pinto Conversion From The 70's???? Is This For Real????
« on: November 21, 2011, 03:19:05 PM »
My co-worker came across this today, and I thought I would throw it up here. Looks legit, but I wanted to see if anybody here had more info on this.



So what do you guys think? B.S. or legit? Would love to know how many were out there still.

I think it is real except the package price.   10K was a lot of money back then.
I have seen Volkswagen electric kits back in the day.  I even drove one back in the day.  You could start out in 3rd gear!
  So I believe the electric motor kits. 
Now here is some Pinto reading that IS NOT REAL!
