1955 LaSalle Roadster goes electric

Joe Bortz, an auto archeologist and collector, well known for its projects, including a 1955 Chevrolet Biscayne restoration, documented and released on the Internet, is preparing to finish restoring another General Motors Motorama concept car, LaSalle Roadster.

This vehicle never had an engine, being a concept car, so Joe Bortz decided to bring a little life in the car, to be able to be driven.

The restorer decided to put an electric hybrid engine in the car, receiving help from Pioneer Conversions, a business located in Illinois, specialized on making cars go green and electric.
