'67 912 vs 98 BMW 328i

I have both and both have sen better days and need serious ICE work. So I am considering an EV conversion. I had assumed the 912 would be a great EV and noticed there are ready-made kits for it.

The BMW is my daily driver but on its last legs. It dawned on me that the BMW is likely a better all around chassis, much more modern and might make a better conversion.

I had had my heart set on the 912.

Help me decide. What should I be weighing?

I am going to have my setup for $5k.

$900 for used 8" ADC motor
$400 for a 500A controller
$2500 for 19kW of lithium
$500 for an old EV project

But I would still do the 912 if you want to go fast. Do the 328 if you want to take a passenger or do any commuting.
