Vintage electric? cars

1967 Renault Dauphine Mars II electric car

Arizona Public Service is one of the chief sponsors of the Fiesta Bowl parade. My employer is involved in two of the floats in the parade. My part in the projects was the fabrication of the styrofoam props, including painting and installation.

Electric Race car

We constructed the floats in one of the APS warehouses in downtown Phoenix. The two warehouses are dedicated to APS public service projects, such as parades and public events.

The warehouses, besides housing several floats and props that have been used in multiple parade, are home to a series of electric vehicles.

The car that first caught my eye was the canary yellow racer. I can find no information on this vehicle. Have info? Comments will be appreciated.

Parked next to it was a 1967 Renault. This car broke records for speed and distance for electric cars in 1967.  Under the hood are eight lead acid batteries, and in the trunk another eight. This is surely no Tesla.
