We all love the idea of a classic in the garage – long Sundays spent tinkering away, romantic blasts through the countryside, admiring looks and stimulating chats with inquisitive car lovers as you go. What. A. Hero.
The reality, unfortunately, is oil puddles, large holes in your bank account and zero signs of life on the one day you’ve earmarked to roll the old girl out.
But there is another way. Electrifying classics has become the marketing-tool-du-jour lately for large manufacturers – see Mini Classic electric, Jaguar E-Type Zero, and Aston’s EV DB6 Volante – and now there’s a new start-up, Charge, that’s focusing on nothing else, starting with an electron-fuelled rebirth of the ‘67 Mustang.
