An old e-type makes a great conversion candidate, honestly.

That big old chunk of iron engine coming out means you can stick a lot of batteries up front without compromising the car's balance.

The big issue would be all the transaxle/joints/driveshaft taking electric motor levels of torque long term. Without replacing all that, this car's going to be pretty unreliable.
