I would like to add electric drive train capability to my '54 Chevy 3/4 ton, without removing the ICE drivetrain. Goal is fun driving around town (not freeway), limited distances, moderate speeds, while still preserving the historical drive train, which I would fire up a few times a year just to keep fluids circulating, seals wet, etc. Not my every day driver, but fun for short trips in fair weather to the grocery store, hardware store, school dropoff and pickup, little league games, etc. Range needed likely under 40 miles. Ideally I could pull over and switch from EV to ICE, but I'm also okay with an hour or two under the hood or under the truck to manually covert over from legacy drive train to electric and back a few times a year. Is there any logic to considering a pair of front wheel drive motors, leaving the ICE drive train in neutral with engine off when driving EV? Tons of room under the truck bed for motors, batteries, controllers, transfer cases, etc. Ideally not butchering the truck so it could be a clean ICE-only again some day. Though not a garage queen by any means. Goal is fun, educational project with my 8yo. Comfortable rebuilding engines, soldering, programming, general construction skills, and just now getting in to welding. Years of RC model flight so quite comfortable with batteries, DIY controllers, software, firmware, chargers, wiring, etc. Also just PV'd three homes, so I now know my way around PV, inverters, RSD, large (expensive) lithium batteries, etc. Welcome any suggestions such as "buy a wrecked Leaf" or "buy an EV West kit" or "take the DIY class in Anderson, CA". Only a few hours into the research, and have only owned the truck for a year. Project budget? Ideally $10k. Paid $15k for the truck, so wouldn't want to spend much more than low teens all in for EV project, with plenty of DIY hours expected. Welcome any suggestions. Bay Area based. And hey, why not have several fold-out PV panels on a classic wood fence in the truck bed? I know two to four 360W panels isn't going to do much, but if the truck is driven < 1 hour a week, and the sun here shines 60 hours a week, why not? Thanks for any guidance.
