24v Motor question...Will it work?

I have access to a 24V forklift, that is complete. My question is will the motor work for a EV? How much voltage can the motor take and what do I look for? I am assuming the motor should be 8" to 10" diameter for strength and capacity. I would like to take it to freeway speeds, so can this be done by using a motor controller in the 144V range? Essentially I am going to pirate the cables and motor, what else might be applicable if anything. Thanks
