Restoring a Classic Electric Car
Kraft, Thomas E.
Tech Directions, v71 n8 p19-21 Mar 2012
One hundred years ago, automobiles were powered by steam, electricity, or internal combustion. Female drivers favored electric cars because, unlike early internal-combustion vehicles, they did not require a crank for starting. Nonetheless, internal-combustion vehicles came to dominate the industry and it's only in recent years that the electrics have gotten more attention. In this article, the author describes how he restored a 1981 Mercury Lynx that had been converted by Jet Industries to function as a plug-in electric vehicle.
