Retro-electrification, converting retro Ford to electric power.

Here is a pretty cool conversion of one of Fords finest, A MK1 Cortina.

The conversion was carried out by Charged Garage in Australia (https://chargedgarage.com/). Check out their page for more details and information.

Tim Harrison runs the car out of Brisbane and his conversion had a moderate budget in comparison to some others. It uses a Netgain HyPer9 AC electric motor and a batteried from a Tesla totalling 31kWh. Utilising  a CHAdeMo charging port fitted (where the exhaust pipe used to be) for DC fast charging.
