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 Coupler and Unicorns
When someone at work saw it they said I should post it. The Unicorn sheet is covering the floor of the car while we mess with the headlining (to ensure it stays clean - the headlining, not the floor).
Remarks about magical Unicorns and Electric Cars were rife when it was spotted
You might notice it looks slightly shorter than the other photo. It is - by about 5mm. The 38mm bore was the same length as the protruding end of the motor shaft and it would have hit the bearing casing. Better safe...
