A couple of weeks ago I bought a junk Bradley GT to use some chassis parts on my new buggy project. A man named Victor from NJ bought the Bradley body from me , the only problem was he had no way to haul it back to NJ. Check out the pics , a few minutes with a Sawzall and it fits great inside a Chevy van.

Actually, I would have cut up the yellow one too to get it back home, had I been driving a van and discovered it for sale.

Nice thing about fiberglass, you can patch it back together easily.

I was thinking the same thing, fiberglass is pretty forgiving. But then..... that was just kind of an evil hack job, not what I'd call strategic cuts. My guess is that it will never be whole again, probably end up in smaller pieces for the trash to haul away. Hope I'm wrong.....

Rob, I would like to see some updates to your thread, YOU do great work....

I think Victor from NJ. slammed his head in the van door a few too many times. What an idiot.

With one thread about the removable trunk, and the other about the tilting hood, I think we just hit "11" on the amp here with a folding car......

What's wrong with putting it on the roof. I have a friend that picked up a new Bounty Hunter body w/side pods in Burbank, Ca and brought it home to Chicago on the roof of his 1968 VW Bus. Hacking the thing up wouldn't even be a option to 99.9% of people.

He is actually using it to build a trike. Not sure exactly how ? Victor seemed like a very cool guy.
