The Bradley GT was the icon of countless boys in junior high back when I was a kid. Why would anyone pay lots of money for a Ferrari when they could have a Bradley GT ?  (We thought.) 😄

 

Seriously though, kit cars are part of old car culture. Maybe they should get more respect from the old car community. I wonder how well those fiberglass bodies held up over time. Did they crack?

I can guarantee you that it DOES NOT fit tall guys.

One of these went thru my hands many years ago and the drivers door had been removed.

Good thing as I had to drive it looking over the windshield. 

No way would I have been able to drive it with the door (gull wing) closed down.

I agree that these are kind of fun, and this one is good looking.

I had an old buddy that had VWs, he always said that they made good toys but not much of a car.

 

Do Porsche heads fit on a VW engine? Are not VW heads aluminum? (don't mean to be stupid, I just do not know VWs).

It's funny the things that affect our thoughts and opinions of certain specific cars.  I love Bradley GTs....  In 6th grade, some family friends of ours had one.  The high school and college boys in the family were building it.  There was a 7th grade girl in the family, very cute, who I had a crush on........hence, I became very interested in their Bradley GT.    My memory (45 years ago) was that it was a very metallic blue color, great looking to me.   

 

Idaho....  that isn't helping it.   If it was closer to a larger metropolitan area, I would think it would sell to someone like me who had memories of youth with these.  

 

The buyer hopefully still has a leisure suit in the closet for taking it out on Friday night for a spin.
