Hello all! Another member here suggested I should post a build thread here!
I bought this car about a year ago, for the purpose of converting it to an EV. It's a 1949 Cadillac 60 Special. It was "running and driving" when I bought it, at least good enough to pull it out of the shop and line it up with the tow truck! Pretty solid, no rust, and complete as far as trim is concerned, so I think it's a good overall start to the project. It also has a decent chassis, which is part of the reason I chose this model, there's plenty of room for activities underneath.

I've made a bit more progress since I bought it, I'll make some follow-up posts with progress!
