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:

Heater Installed

I installed the heater box on the cabin side of the firewall on the weekend. It's all wired up to the traction battery system but not tested yet. I want the DC current metering installed (dashboard required)  before I try it. I did try the 12V blower - it's a bit rumbly. Somewhere I saw replacement vibration mounts for the fan motor but I can't remember where. It's easy enough to do another time.
