Initial plan is to strip and restore it then convert to electric. The plan at the moment is to use our favourite drivetrain from a Nissan Leaf along with a pack of batteries from the same car – probably a 40kWh pack. The aim with this car is to use it as the local family get around. The Kinghorn family consists of George, his wife and 3 sons plus the family dog, a Hungarian Vizla called Pablo so we need room for all of them. We also need to tow things locally occasionally and this will suit that. Aiming for a range of around 80 to 100 miles.
