This Vintage Electric Car Could Be Yours

About 2,300 CitiCars was produced between 1974 and 1977 in response to the OPEC oil crisis. It had a top speed of around 50 mph and a maximum range of 40 miles per charge - fairly impressive for a vehicle with a 3.5 HP motor powered by 48 volts from a stack of eight lead acid batteries. More importantly, it's street legal and just begging to be modded with modern technology. As I write this, it's at $2,550 with 4 days to go in the auction.
