Ford Will Show Electric Crate Motor at SEMA

People have been buying and dropping crate motors into classic cars for years. My old next door neighbor had a modern 5.0 Coyote V8 under the hood of his 1967 Mustang, and it was pretty cool. Now Ford plans to offer an electric option, since electric conversions of classic cars are becoming more and more of a thing.

The Drive has the details, but this motor is just 570 mm, or 22.5 inches, from front to back. That’s tiny. It’ll fit into practically anything. It might even fit into a motorcycle if you can work out where the battery will go. Ford Performance will supply everything else, and maybe the battery, too, eventually.
