    I have my doubts about this one - is it a legitimate Globe-Union Endura? If so, why does the seller call it a Ford? Why so few pics? Why be mysterious?

    Can't say that I ever heard of the Globe-Union Endura 'till I saw this car for sale. Here's the eBay link:

    And here's a write-up in Hemmings Daily:

    And here's a write-up about the "1976 Ford Endura":

    Is this eBay car the real deal? Or someone just trying to pass a home-made project car off as the real thing?

    1977 Globe-Union Endura Electric Car

    The car was purchased and transported back to RaceLabz in Pennsylvania.
    It will go through a complete frame off restoration.
    The car is documented and the only existing example of a Globe Union Endura that exists.
    The sale of the car came with original documents, purchase orders, blueprints and wiring schematics.
    It is a piece of automotive history and the plans are to have it go into a private collection.
