I'd do it. They're rare, first of all. When EV's become the "norm", you might be able to sell it to a collector looking for "firsts" of the type for far more than you paid for it.

If you've got the time and know how, you could make it run on a nice lithium pack, as well... cost is higher, but damn, that's some battery technology.
