I grabbed this about a year and a half ago. Replaced all batteries, tires, sear covers, various lights, repaired vacuum for brakes, replaced brakes, and some other various things.
Have driven weekly around town, and for running errands. Fun little car.
Registered as electric in Colorado and have enjoyed the time I’ve had it. My work is now a bit farther than I can use this for. I’ve taken it 30 or so miles but not farther. I have never tried to max it out. If I kept it I was going to update from the 96 volts currently powering it.
Runs and drives with the factory transmission. This was originally a college project and I have all the books and manuals that came with it.
There’s a little rust on the lower corner of the back deck and a small spot at the top in the rear. Looks great and people always ask about it when I take it to town. It isn’t something you see every day.

At empty, it takes 12 hours to charge at 12 amps DC charge rate (18 amps AC 120 volts). In can use a 30 amp 120 volt plug for faster charging.

I think $3900 is pretty fair. I’m not in a hurry to sell and will continue to use it.

Please Give me a few minutes, I’m trying to get the photos and specs uploaded.

Can you delete the extra two listings that you created for the same car?
Any takers on this, yet? The 82 Escort was literally the first car I ever owned. Mine was burgundy. I paid $600 for it in 1994, and the thing never passed emissions after that, so I retired it. All this to say, your listing is very intriguing to me. I’m interested in a closer look if this is still available.
