12 volt ESC for an American Bosch motor?

I have an old Palmer Twosome with the Tecumseh transaxle, American Bosch 12 volt motor and two completely bad 220AH 6 volt golf cart batteries.

The speed control is crazy primitive, four open coils of resistance wire, one of which has burned through at both ends, all mounted on a piece of wood. (This cost over $2,000 new?)

Rather than sink a ton of cash into a fancy new motor and high-tech batteries, I'd like to stick with 12 volts, the motor that's already on it, and upgrade the control so it can have longer range instead of wasting power in that set of heaters under the seat.
