 1981 Jet Electrica (Mercury Lynx)

This is not a conversion.   It was factory built at Jet Industries in Austin. TX.
Jet purchased these new from Ford without internal combustion components and built them as electric vehicles.   The title states the type of fuel as electric.

This car is a solid runner with very simple but durable electric vehicle technology.   This car in it's present form is not fast by any means but it is very fun to drive and is built very well.   Lead acid powered EV's are an excellent way to get into electric vehicle technology fairly economically.   Upgrading to lithium batteries would make this a great daily driver.   It would benefit from a much longer range and much less weight.

Most EV components aren't cheap. especially the batteries.   I just installed 16 new 6 volt drive batteries and a new 12 volt battery in September of this year.   I also replaced all of the battery interconnects since they were old and
some of them were in bad condition.

Only 12. 80 miles
Original 4 speed trans
20 HP Prestolite motor
96 Volts - 16 x 6 volt lead acid batteries - bought new in Sep '16
12 volt battery for non drive system components - bought new in Sep '16
1/0 battery interconnect cables with copper lugs - installed new in Oct '16

On board 220 volt charger. charges 12 volt and 96 volt systems
25' Charging cord - 10-30 nema plug and L6-30 nema socket on car
Curtis 1221B controller - heat sink added Sep '16
Round ducting was added around controller to aid in cooling
60+ miles of range (according to research I've found online)

Interior is excellent
Exterior has a couple flaws as shown in the pics
185/70-13 tires
Gas heat and AC systems were removed (didn't function and parts missing)
Buyer will get owners manual. service/parts manual and a 25' charging cord
Clear title in my name

This is a used vehicle so there is no warranty of any kind.   No returns or refunds.   Sale will be final.
Please ask questions of you have them.   Local Pickup Only.   I will assist as much as possible if you use a shipping company.

Good luck.
