It's not an original Electrovair, but it is a 1966 Chevrolet Corvair Corsa that was converted to all-electric drive and it is currently up for auction on eBay. We're not sure what the performance specs for this car are, but it looks good, thanks to fresh marina blue paint, a new interior and replated bumpers, among other visual enhancements.

Under the hood, the car has a 144V AC 24 conversion kit made by Electroauto. That kit alone costs around $10,000, without batteries. The car for sale has 18 eight-volt lead acit batteries "mounted as low as possible for good balance." We don't know how far or fast the car can go (the seller is worryingly quiet about these numbers), but Electroauto says its conversions can often reach 90 miles per hour and have a range of 50 miles (depending, of course, on duty cycle, configuration and battery pack).

Whatever the car's final cost might be, the seller if offering to take $1,500 off if you don't want the Hurst wheels with redline tires and opt for stock rally wheels. The seller also says the car has just 200 miles on it, which we take to mean since the conversion. The car is located in Fullerton, CA, but we can pretty easily imagine parking it in our garage (and upgrading those cells!). With about a day left in the auction, the bids are up to $10,900. The Buy It Now prices of $39,000 remains unused. Thanks to Dutch for the tip!
