  1. Yes the Electrac was quite a machine. I owned a pre production model and 2 production ones. I worked with a few engineers that developed it. They were great tractors!! There was a mule that was built at the lab before the EV-1. It was tested for several ideas that went into future mules. It was about the size of a large golf cart with 2 doors in an enclosure. It was a fiberglass shell painted black and white. It had very simple relays and controls at the time with a bunch of standard lead acid batteries to power it. Re genitive braking systems was in its infancy back then. When they were thru with it I tried to purchase it for scrap knowing some day it would be appreciated by auto enthusiasts. I was told NO! and our grounds crew loaded it up on a trailer and brought it to a local landfill where they had to destroy it then bury it. I tried my best to save it but failed!!. We also had a hybrid bus that was tested on the streets of New York City too. It would be trucked down to the city tested and returned to the lab for evaluation. After our contract was up on the project with it, it disappeared to who knows where . Probably was cut up also. Thought you would appreciate this tid bit from my time at the Lab.
  2. Hi I worked at The G.E. R&D Lab in Niskayuna. Yes that car was stationed at CRD.There was a team of scientists and staff working on the concept cars. It was constantly being tested and upgraded and taken to shows. There were a few "mules" built over a period of time proving concepts in motive power. Remember the car well as it was sometimes was sent to our Bldg. next door MET. Bldg. to be loaded on a truck for shows back then as we had a high bay for tractor trailers to pull into for loading. Hope this helps!

  6. My Father bought one of these on the Boardwalk in New Jersey when I was a kid.The barker had a full size Buick there mounted on about a 35 degree angle so the crowd could see things showing the horsepower increase on a big "Horsepower meter" he had there. Dad bought one on the spot. He installed it on our Mercury but it did little. Sat on a shelf for years in our garage. Years later I was brave enough to take it down from a shelf and open it up. Inside was a small chain connecting bottom and upper lug! Yes snake oil but the Barker sold tons of them that night. This was about 1960. Brings back a great memory . Thank you!!

  15. Hi, Does someone have a photo of a 1921 DB drag link that connects the steering arm to the left front spindle?. Assuming now I do not have the correct one for the car. The one I have appears to be identical to a Model A ford one. If I attempt to make it fit the internal parts will not work. Are both ends of the correct link the same as a Model A one but I have incorrect innards? One end will fit correctly but the other end will not. Anyone have one for sale?? Thanks.
