Some folks will be outraged. For me, an electric motor in a classic is like a 500 lb man in a thong- I just prefer not to look.
In practical terms, what do you want it to do? To work just well enough to amuse the radio shack crowd? Not cheap, but not THAT exorbitant. Won’t be fast and won’t have much range. Increasing range or performance by much will get very expensive, quickly.

If you can, do it for no better reason it will send many people off the proverbial deep end.
I wish I had the funds to buy a wrecked Tesla.
This one may be for sale Robert :p

Sir,
It's a known fact that conversion of ANY tri-five to electric results in:

Lower testosterone levels
Sitting down when you pee
Inability to make good decisions
Loss of friends
Getting slapped by strangers who see it
Drooling
Disavowment by family members


And...

Getting thumbs up from Prius owners....


Your call, but in my opinion.....no....just no....I refer you to to current state of Project X.

It’s not a very powerful motor, pretty plain in the looks department, but they tend to run and run and run. Chevrolet‘s version of the Energizer Bunny, before the bunny ever got energized, lol. Also, very easy to work on. Everything is pretty accessible.
