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:

Rear seat installed

It's temporary as it will have to come out to fit seatbelts and finish the black vinyl trimming, but a real confidence boost for us that it still fits perfectly AND the silver bits line up! We even sat in it for a few minutes - very comfortable as they give a little bit unlike modern seats - kind of like the lounge chair of car seats.
