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/

Engineer Final Inspection - Passed
Before leaving though, he stuck a nice new sticker to the engine bay side of the firewall indicating the the Vogue now had Electric Drive (pictures to come).
He will mail (or has already mailed) out the complience document to me which I then take to VicRoads for the fuel type change on the registration. He was concerned that the Vogue has the Chassis number on an aluminiun plate pop-riveted to the front of the engine bay and wants me the take along supporting documentation.
Since the Vogue is already registered I can't see that being an issue but we'll see.
Note smaller aluminiun plate to the right of the bonnet latch.
