FS: 1975 Citi-Car, all electric two seater, in western WI.

I'm selling my 1975 Citi-Car, a factory built all electric car, they were made in Florida by a small company called Seabring Vangard for a number of years, advertised range and speed were 40 miles at 40mph, 30 miles an 35mph is more realistic, but people do bump up the voltage on these cars for higher top speeds or add batteries for higher range.
Basic design is an all aluminum tube frame, seating for two with a small cargo area behind the seats, 8 6 volt golf cart batteries live under the bench seat with the drive motor mounted on the rear axle, drive motor is a GE series wound motor similar to what a golf cart would have.
Body that came stock was made out of ABS plastic, the body on this one had enough cracks in it that I chose to replace it with ply wood, fiber glass and boat building epoxy, I'm about half way done so it will need to be finished, the body is simple enough that what is left could be done in a weekend.
I've gone thru the entire electrical system and the drive system works as it should, forward and reverse is changed via a toggle switch on the dash, all of the wiring for lights is intact and was working altho when I put it away it was blowing a fuse when I turned the turn signals on, it should be a simple fix I've just ran out of time to have this as a project.
The car comes with a good clear title, I've bought LEDs to replace all of the marker lights and turn signals, the head lights are in chrome hot rod style head light buckets, it has a brand new windshild installed made out of safety glass, it comes with all the body parts that I've made and the epoxy, roll of fiber glass seaming tape and the stock body parts that came off the car if you want them, it also comes with a full set of used golf cart batteries, they are not perfect but they work well enough to give you maybe 15 miles of range they are also worth $20 each as a core charge for new batteries.
It still has the on board charger, everything works.
Asking $1,000 for it fits on my small trailer and tows behind my parents ford ranger pickup truck without issue.
