Yale electric forklift motor identification

I have an old Yale 3600 lbs forklift with a 9" x 14" (or so..?) electric motor. The forklift runs on 36 Volt. Before I take the forklift apart I would like to know if that motor can be converted for using in an electric car. That means it should run at least on 96V and should develop decent horsepower. Can anyone identify the motor based on the forklift(size) and some pictures I will try to attach?
Thanks, Bernd
P.S. Do I post in the right category?

You can check the ID plate on the lift, call Yale, and they can tell you anything you want to know about that motor.

They can also give you information on any other part of the lift.

That would be your best bet for accurate information, but they probably won't tell you what aftermarket uses it has. Once they give you the part number and such, maybe even the serial number of the motor, you can probably just google it and find out what you need to know.
