1980 ElectraVan - StPaul MN

Not mine. It was posted on EM's sister site EcoRenovator originally and thought some here might have some interest. I never even knew these were made...
1980 ElectraVan

For Sale: 1980 ElectraVan by Jet Industries $5000 (St Paul)
This is a 100% Electric Vehicle! This is a rare piece of EV history with many original documents to complete the story.
I have been driving this van to work and home during the summer months since I bought it, 4 years ago. I have replaced the original motor controller with an updated Curtis 1221C controller. I have replaced all of the heavy gauge battery wiring and rebuilt the battery box. The van has a newer Zivan battery charger and plugs into a standard 110V outlet. Charges in 4-6 hrs. The current battery pack is an assortment of (8)12V savaged batteries in good to fair condition giving the van a range of 15-20 miles.
