"She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid." That classic line from Star Wars, entered the popular culture lexicon just about the same time as this quirky electric car we recently found on eBay. Based on a 1977-ish Endura (possibly) this one may have been originally converted by the Globe-Union company as a showcase for the their automotive replacement batteries. According to a Hemmings article on the Endura EV, you might know Globe-Union as the company as the manufacturer of DieHard batteries for Sears. There's more info on the Endura here.

Our RWD eBay find has a 20-hp DC electric motor and 7,000 miles on the odometer. Sadly, the two-door hatchback needs work. A lot of it. But, it is one of a kind and we can imagine a lot of good things happening in the hands of the right team of engineering students, for example. The good news is that the eBay auction proceeds will support the solar assistance programs of the Rural Renewable Energy Alliance non-profit. The buyer also recommends local pick-up, and we think that's a good idea. There's only one day left until the auction ends and the current bid sits at just over $700. It was apparently previously listed for much more.

      There should be some sort of museum or display center for vehicles like this instead of tossing them away when their fifteen minutes of fame have come and gone. If I had the money, I could easily find some vacant buildings in my area and make it happen.

      The car was purchased and transported back to RaceLabz in Pennsylvania. It will go through a complete frame off restoration. The car is documented and the only existing example of a Globe Union Endura that exists. The sale of the car came with original documents, purchase orders, blueprints and wiring schematics. It is a piece of automotive history and the plans are to have it go into a private collection.
