Old BMW, small, lightweight, RWD = 02 series; I happen to have one for future conversion but I'm concerned about poor (in today's standards) aerodynamics...

Hadn't thought about the Nash. Was thinking more along the model T/ Model A lines. No frills, no a/c no power steering or brakes. Not a huge fan of bubble cars but of course if the price were right....

On the right day a decent subaru 360 which sort of looks like a very small VW bug can be had for sub $500, especially if you don't need a running motor.

3- Subaru 360

I own one as well but it looks nicer and tends to run most of the time.

If I'd get a Subaru 360 I'd rather throw an Yamaha Banshee engine with some tuning. For a classic EV project there is nothing better than some random old compact Ford such as a Falcon, a Maverick, among others...

Altough the Subaru 360 has a nice design, the packaging of reasonably-sized battery packs gets harder, and the space available to fit the electric drivetrain and the controllers is too tight, so the vehicle would be quite compromised.
