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:

My Motor Awaits Shipping

QIN WEI Sent me some photos of my motor, ready and waiting to ship.

The terminal box is a lot further forward of where the drawing said it would be so I'll have to see if I can replace it with a low profile ABS or aluminium box when I get it.

The idea is to try and mount the motor as far back in the transmission tunnel as possible. It's 258mm diameter so it might fit - I won't know until I get the engine and gearbox out of the Vogue. The terminal box will be an issue though.

Hi Johny,

It may be possible to reverse your stator / terminal box. i.e. remove end caps + rotor, and turn the stator around 180 degrees to leave the terminal box at the fan end.

Good point - I hadn't considered that. That would be a good backup plan if the "moved" terminal box ends up just clear of the firewall.
