How about this for an electric conversion?
A beautiful classic and yet still a contemporary if not futuristic design. A unibody with 4 wheel independent coil spring suspension to allow individual wheel motors.
A flat floor with no transmission "hump", a huge trunk and engine compartment = lots of space for batteries offering weight distribution. A great "driver", a real head-turner, and NOT a re-born Fiat or Mustang but a car that did get a bad reputation (thank you Mr. Nader) that has already been de-bunked.
My nomination is my 1966 Chevy...but not just any 66 Chevy... my 66 Corvair Corsa convertible!
Dream on Mr. Musk. I'm with you and I'd do it myself but, due to the pandemic financial situation I now have to sadly sell my "baby". Maybe someone else will carry the torch.
I'm moving on to Tiny Houses for Big Cities...where I plan to incorporate other "Musk-y" ideas..solar shingles and wall cladding and state-of-the art insulation into pre-fab, off the shelf, code-compliant, standard dimension sectional wall panels. Our next big switch in housing conceptual designing.
