Yes, but reproduction kits would cost more than some of the old junkers i've seen.
Earlier i found a 64 Ford Mustang on blocks that was advertised for only $275. Some parts were missing, but nothing i wouldn't of yanked out anyway. All body panels were there, they just needed treatment. no rust on it, the rims looked pretty good, tires were shot, some glass was gone, wipers needed replacement, etc.... but i'd be willing to bet that the important parts for EV conversion would of been fine.

the cost of a kit car for that, plus the time to assemble it.... i'd much rather go with an original to mod.

(it looked alot like this but hard top and uglier: )
