New to group. I'm 72 myself and have members of my antique. car club whose legs cannot work the clutch as easily as when they were younger, I seek information. On the best motors, controllers, chargers and battery's that could be applied.to cars manufactured. from the beginning in 1898 to the 1930's
On Chinese websites I see packages made to build electric vehicles, I also see the Zonic motors. I have no education. on how to begin building an electric car. I am only aware, back in the 60's they were putting aircraft starter motors in VW's. A lot has happened since the 60's.

You have a lot of information available here. I spent 10 years working largely on pre war cars myself. Considering a model A EV swap this summer. I am in Northern VA if you are ever close you can stop by and see what it takes to convert.
