My name is Ric and I have a 1982 caddy that I've had senses about 1989. I converted it from diesel to electric power 1997. It has 37KW motor that can peek about 90KW. The battery pack is 120 volt with 2 chargers 1 2.5 KW the other is 1KW that plugs into 110v out let. The 2.5 KW charger will charge the batteries in about 3-5 hours. This caddy can go about 28 miles in the cold and about 55 when it is hot, has a top speed of 80MPH and will push you back in your seat 0-30 MPH acceleration starting in 2nd gear. I need to do some cosmetic work to it the interior is bad and needs to be redone again. I am also having some shift linkage problems luckly I don't have to shift much. I will post some pictures soon. good day [8D]
