Description

Estimate:
$60,000 - $70,000 USD

  • Exceedingly rare, believed to be one of only a handful of late-production Detroit Electrics built
  • Remarkably well-preserved in original condition with an endearing patina
  • Fascinating history including factory correspondence
  • Preserved original fabric interior
  • Tiller steering, rear-facing jump seat
  • Optioned with the distinct Willys-sourced coupe body and Dodge front-end sheet metal
  • Recently fitted with new deep-cycle batteries
  • Fully operational and needing little to enjoy on the road
  • A delightful early electric, ideal for concours preservation honors or the growing number of electric vehicle classes
