1967 Triumph Spitfire EV Conversion - Student Project
Mechanical Engineering Students from the University of Colorado Denver
spent the Summer of 2009 converting a broken down 1967 Triumph Spitfire
into a 100% Electric Vehicle. Our EV conversion can reach a top speed of
75 MPH and has a maximum range of 40 miles (of average city driving) all
with an overnight charge (8-10 hours) on a standard 110 Volt outlet. We
completed the entire conversion for under $10,000 including almost $2,000
of restoration work, all in about 8 weeks.

Wheeler Dealers, Edd China. Triumph TR6 Evans Waterless Engine Coolants Conversion
Wheeler Dealers, Edd China converted a Triumph TR6 to Evans Waterless
Engine Coolants. The episode gave a detailed account of all aspects of
conversion from the Prep Fluid flush to finish. The coolant Edd used was
our Classic Cool 180 which is particularly suitable for this era of car and
will eliminate the overheating problems that can be common with triumphs.
The new owner will also find the coolant won't cause corrosion or
cavitation and will extend the life of components such as the water pump.
Edd also demonstrated how the unique properties of the waterless coolant
prevent pressurisation of the cooling system by removing the radiator cap
whilst the vehicle was running. Don't try this with a water-based coolant!
A big thank you to Wheeler Dealers for using our product!
