Conversion Time10 months not working with the students during
the summer and only working after school on
select days during the school year.
Conversion CostWe previously built a 1997 Saturn SL2 and
decided to build another vehicle. So we
reused everything out of the Saturn except for
the batteries. If you do not count the
original investment for the motor, controller
and the batteries that we actually borrowed
from another school, we spent about 2100.00
converting the S-10 which includes the cost of
the truck from the salvage yard.
Additional FeaturesLooks totally stock until you open the hood.
