|Owner's Other EVs||1972 Volkswagen Super Beetle|
|Location||Duluth, Minnesota US map|
|Vehicle||1975 Sebring-Vanguard Citicar |
I named it "stinky" because it had been sitting for 22 years when I bought it and was full of mouse crap.
|Motor||General Electric 3.5 hp Series Wound DC|
Would like to find a direct fit replacement that would offer more power for hills.

Original Contactor Controller
|Batteries||8, 6.00 Volt, Lead-Acid, Flooded|
6 exide batteries and 2 sams club golf cart batteries

Original charger that came with the car still works but the timer quit! Anyone know where to buy a replacement timer?

|Instrumentation||Original Citicar dash & instrumentation|
|Top Speed||33 MPH (53 KPH)|
|Range||40 Miles (64 Kilometers)|
|Seating Capacity||2 adults & one Beagle.|
|Tires||It had 4.80x12 trailer tires on it and I hated them! SUPER ROUGH RIDE!|
None of the local tire dealers had or could get radial tires anymore.
So I went to the junkyard and dug around and found the spare donut tires out of ford tempos which are the original size replacement of 135/13 tires in new condition. I bought them for $5 each and paid another $8 each for mounting and now my car rides better!
Don't torture yourself with trailer tires!!!! Get some radials!!!!
|Conversion Cost||I Paid $1500 for the car as is, Brakes cost $300 to get rolling, plus a set of batteries. Battery cables / odds & ends $200, getting it home $400 so about $3000 total|
