I'm just trying to figure out WTF dude was thinking with his rear suspension setup, or lack thereof, and if any tech inspector would let something like this actually make a pass:

Should be shackles on those leafs, not a crusty booger welded..... whatever. Wheelie bar level: Delusional.

What the heck is it based on? It doesn't look like an ACVW pan.

With that short wheelbase and a bored out 283, I'm guessing it's pretty "exciting" to drive.

Full frame, double wishbone front, and a coil sprung rear. Probably not a truck chassis due to the coil sprung rear. Can't be too modern given the shock is located behind the spring.  Maybe a '60s era GM product that's been cut down?

Edit - I forgot, asking $10000. Title says "New" engine. 20k miles is new? "Just replaced rear tires" says it was hooned. Plugs and coils are "New" but have 1/3 the life used up on them.

 

 

CAR RUNS/DRIVES LIKE NEW
10,000 on NEW:
- CAT Converter
- Front tires
- Brake pads
- Air mass sensor
- Air fuel ratio sensor
- Ignition coils
- Spark plugs
- JUST REPLACED rear tires

- 90k miles on car, 20k miles on new Mazda engine

This one might be the be-all, end-all of delusional Craigslist ads.

$1 Million Dollars.

I know what you’re thinking why would somebody pay $1 million for a 1980 Ford Fairmont electric car because they only made 12 of these cars and this one is for sale....

Just like Any expensive painting or fancy lamp this car has its value as being a piece of history lost in it’s Time capsule form ......My phone number is 253-355-2170 ..I will charge $500 to look at this car... sorry for the inconvenience of having to charge but it makes it so that only serious buyers will be looking at this vehicle I get so many calls on this vehicle so please only serious buyers call me on the phone

it’s already going to cost $3000 just in Batteries alone....


As of January 1, 1982 sixteen private-sector site operators at 30 sites in the US were involved in electric and hybrid electric-powered vehicle demonstration programs. Data for 1981 and the first quarter of 1982 are presented on vehicle selection, miles accumulated, energy usage, maintenance requirements, reliability and operating performance for demonstration vehicles at each site


So If you want a piece of history or to...donate it to a museum... or to Put it in your museum or sell to a Electric company for more money than you buy it from me....

This car was not built by Ford . It was built by a company called EVA that used to buy vehicles and convert them to electric power for profit, they had been doing it since the early 70's if I remember correctly.
When this particular vehicle left the Ford factory it was equipped with a 3.3L inline-6 engine, which is why the emissions sticker is present. EVA later went on to purchase "Body in White" vehicles from Ford as they had previously done with AMC's pacer. Those body in white vehicles were not equipped with engines. EVA called these Fairmont conversions the Curfare and were available in wagon, coupe, and 4dr sedan like yours. So this car is an EVA Curfare, not a Ford Fairmont. The DOE tested them in the early 80's to establish the maturity of the technology: https://www.osti.gov/servlets/purl/6807595.
EVA built a number of vehicles This was the End of electric cars in the 1980s


These cars never come up for sale...

Have a great day

That guy is smoking the good meth.  It could be a cool project. 

If it was some old factory prototype i could see some extra value, but its a old tech aftermarket swap. Its overpriced by $999,990
