1993 Ford Escort Wagon LX
SOLD! ($10,200 on 7/21/04)
This is one of several professionally converted EVcort vehicles from the Soleq corporation. A brand new battery pack has been installed in this vehicle! While the vehicle itself has just over 10,000 miles on it, the new battery pack has less than a mile on it! It is important to note that the battery pack will last three times as long if used regularly (the previous pack was not used regularly). The vehicle comes complete with an Owner's Manual and schematics, both from Soleq. The picture above and the pictures shown in the link below are of a similar EVcort. The one being sold here still has lettering on the side of the vehicle.
