Here we have an old EV conversion, based on the venerable Ford Ranger bones. In this case I started with the AMT Ranger STX kit, and fitted it with a scratchbuilt EV drivetrain. It also has a few subtle aero tricks, like the grille filler panel and smooth bumper. Over the years a couple of the Moon wheel discs fell off, so they were replaced with some old Lincoln full wheel covers the owner had around. The battery pack in the bed, which powers the old-tech anvil of a DC motor up front, has started taking it's toll on the rear springs. I borrowed the Republic name from a long-defunct local truck manufacturer, and REV stands for 'Republic Electric Vehicle', because it's a '90's EV and it needs to have a cutesy name.
