This blog documents the restoration, and conversion, of a 1965 Humber (Singer) Vogue to a fully electric vehicle. The Vogue will be powered by an 11kW(modified), 3 phase industrial AC motor, controlled by an industry standard Variable Speed Drive (VSD) or Inverter. To be able to produce the 400 volts phase to phase the VSD will need about 600 VDC of batteries. A big thanks to the contributors on the AEVA forum: http://forums.aeva.asn.au/forums/

Motor Missed Shipment
Good news, the car is confirmed for the spray painter tomorrow.
I hadn't mentioned it here, but it's got a mostly blown head gasket so the trip down there (about 25km) involves 2 or 3 water stops. I'll run the radiator open so it has less pressure and is easy to top up. I got it there and back about 2 months ago for the quote so I should be OK.
