Bought a "Running" Bradley GT.
Not paying a lot and it is supposed to have had a lot of work done to it.
"Rebuilt engine", fresh brakes, pan repaired, working lights!
Needs paint of course, and no doors as that plastic went away long ago.

I know they are a bit of a joke as being cheap kit cars but it should actually be pretty practical for me.
A bit more (A very small bit!) stylish than a Manx type with slightly more weather protection, while still being capable of driving the occasional unpaved road.

Have a fairly long drive coming up to go and fetch it but should have it on the road very quickly.

Nothing wrong with a Bradley GT. Its a great way to get into the kit car hobby.

They are simple, pretty well built, and pretty easy to make your own.

One of the worst things people do is buy a very complicated kit (like an Avenger or Sterling) as their first kit and get overwhelmed.

Graphics can do a lot for a Bradley. Plus this guy has done something behind the targa bar.

Hoping to pick up the Bradley on Wednesday.
It is a "fast-back" version.
Need something simple to drive that can endure occasional Nevada dirt roads.
No doors of course, so I will have to make something.
Thinking of just fitting vinyl and isinglass over a simple aluminum framework.
