Arrow Raffle to win a 1951 Land Rover Series 1

Hi all,

Sustainable Nantucket is raffling off a fully restored All Electric Series Truck. Tickets are $100 and they are selling only 650 tickets.

This is a great chence to win a cool truck and a great excuse to visit the island, although you need not be present to win. You can buy them online.

Only 650 tickets too.

I had the exact same reaction about the downpipe. How do we learn more about this?

down pipe might be there to keep the original look. I am interested in what electric motor is powering it and how the recharge works.... what is the range etc.

LOL. Yeah winning it is the key. I guess I could buy 650 tickets to make it a sure thing?

Cute. I emailed and at first got a response linking me to the same page above, so asked again, and got this response.

Quote:
I'm sorry I didn't say so before but the car in the photo isn't actually the exact car that we will be raffling off! It is still with the owner and we are waiting on a write-up on the car itself once the conversion process is completed. We won't actually have the physical car on island for a few weeks from now. I'd be more than happy to contact you once we have the completed write-up so I can give you more detailed information on the car.
I let her know I'm building one too and will update this thread if I hear more.

So... this truck is just for reference only?

They should mention that in the raffle. Just saying... Not starting a debate.

Faked out again. I would say that this raffle is starting to smell like dead fish.

Most of the fish I have ever eaten was dead. I'm still staying positive!

If anyone wants the actual truck pictured, it was for sale through Jacobi Specialist Cars, and is actually a 1956, not a 1951.

They could replace the motor with one from a large blender and blammo- same horsepower.

Thanks for the update Steve. Lead acid is a bit disappointing but otherwise this looks like it would be an awesome truck. Not sure how they are making any money off the raffle unless the car was donated.
