Junkyard Find: 1988 Chevy Sprint Electric Sport

1988 Chevy Electric Sport

For fans of ultra-rare GM electric cars from the late 80s and early 90s, this junkyard find should be a rare treat. The 1998 Chevy Sprint shown here was converted to “Electric Sport” status during that time, and was fitted with conventional lead-acid automotive batteries that sent power to a high-torque electric motor. Range was limited, but neighborhood performance was probably pretty sprightly in 35 MPH-ish speed zones.

The Chevy Sprint Electric Sport you see here, however, hasn’t been sprightly for the better part of a decade, it looks like. It was spotted by LeMons’ most feared and legendary tribunal, Murilee Martin, who took a number of high-resolution photographs of the thing and shared them over at the Truth About Cars.

Head on over there for a full set of Chevy Sprint pictures- I’ve pulled some of my favorites and included them for you guys, below. Enjoy!
