Price $ 4,000.00
Description 1981 Jet Electrica (Mercury Lynx) Completely drivable and 100% electric car built by Jet Industries of Austin, TX. This is not a conversion. It is a factory built electric vehicle. Jet purchased these new from Ford as "gliders" without internal combustion components and built them as electric vehicles. This car is a time capsule from the 80's electric vehicle era. There is no better way to get into electric vehicles than these older lead battery types. They are pretty reliable and the EV drive system is simple and straightforward. Their biggest downfall is the weight of the lead batteries. The batteries weigh so much that they rob the car of any possible performance abilities. A substantial improvement in speed and range can be gained by converting this car to lithium. The lead battery pack in this car weighs 1040 lbs. A comparable lithium pack would only be approximately 232 lbs. That's a difference of 808 lbs. Only 13,000 miles Transmission: Original 4 speed Ford Motor: Prestolite MTC-4001 series dc Drive batteries: 16 x 6 volt lead batteries purchased from Batteries Plus. 230 amp hour each. Newly installed Sep '16 Car battery: 12 volt, 100 amp hour. Newly installed Sep '16 Charger: Jet on board charger, uses 220 volt plug Controller: Curtis 1221C controller - new heat sink added Sep '16 DC to DC converter: 96V to 13.5V converter - installed Sep '16 Wiring: All battery interconnects changed from 1 gauge to 1/0 welding cable with new copper lugs in Sep '16. Tires: 185/70-13, lots of tread and a little dry rot here and there Range: approx. 45 miles in it's current configuration. Buyer will get owners manual, service/parts manual and a 25' charging cord Interior: Excellent overall Exterior: Overall very straight with some blemishes. Rear hatch has a couple dents. These were caused by me when I brought the car home and was rolling it off the trailer. Right front fender has major fading. Besides that the rest of the paint looks pretty good. AC and Heat: Gas heat and electric AC systems were removed since they weren't functioning. There is a pic of a pallet with all the parts that were removed. This is a used vehicle so there is no warranty of any kind. No returns or refunds. Sale will be final. This is a local pickup sale. I cannot deliver it but will do what I can to assist in your shipment of this vehicle.
