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/

The Vogue is almost ready for Primer
Brett (Old Auto Classics Restoration) sent me some photos for the blog.
They are just about ready to prime the main part of the body.
He mentioned that on removing a lot of the paint they discovered a few "secrets".
