Okay, well recently i remembered this 'old' car i saw awhile ago and have
recently passed it quite a bit. I decided to take as good of a look as i
could through a steel fence to find out what it was. It is a Bradley GT II
(not sure year), kit car.
It looks mostly complete (interior may be junk cause t-tops are missing) and in good shape, i have only seen the sides, rear and above (kinda) of the car, so dunno what the front looks like. I was just wondering if anyone could tell me an approximate value of one of these cars.
I can maybe try to take some pics (as i might see it later tonight) but i'm not sure yet, might be alittle dark out. So if anyone knows an approximate price for a Bradley GT II could you please let me know, kinda curious. Thanks in advance for any help.
Price is going to be hard for this kind of car because they are not very
common nor are they really sought after. I've seen a couple running
examples on e-bay go for the $3,000 - $6,000 range. I picked one up from a
bone yard a couple years ago for $300. It was a project that didn't get
finished but the body was in decent shape and it had all the
There is one recently listed on e-bay that you could watch to gauge the price.
e-bay Bradley GTII (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1979-BRADLEY-GT-II_W0QQitemZ4580267526QQcat egoryZ6737QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem)
It may come down to what the owner is willing to let it go for and how much you actually want it and are willing to pay for it. If those two numbers meet up then.........
Let me know if you look into it and have any futher questions.
Here is a picture of mine.
Very basic cars, fairly low quality of fitment, but strong. It could be fun
with a built up bug motor in it. Hell, my Bradley GT 1 was fun with a stock
This was mine:
My half-baked plan is to stuff in the back a Ford 2.3 out of a turbo coupe. All I need is the adapter plate and the time.
Hell I'll do a trade, my 2.3 liter for a 302 :hi:. Got one laying around somewhere hehe
Sorry, all I've got Ford is a 351M and a 460. Oh, and I have the 2.3 already so what else do you have?
I'll take the 460 hehe
Alright thanks. I was just curious, i'd definately take it if i could get
it less then $600-700 (all i have/can get right now), no more then $1000
though. I might try to get a friend to find out about it (as its in a
school yard and has been for awhile) and i dont go to that school. I think
they look kinda cool, it looks more like the one 'theman352001' posted but
its orange. It says on the back (an emblem) that its a turbo V6 but i dunno
really, i'll try to get some pics and find out more. Thanks for your time
and help :thumbs:
BTW: Is there any chance of fitting something bigger in the, say some kind of small block V8? :mrgreen: Nice cars by the way, what happened to them (ChrisV and/or theman352001)?
YOu know, the only cars I'm really...purist...about are Bugs or bug based
cars, as far as engines are concerned. it's SO easy to make an 11 second
street Bug with a streetable Bug engine, and it's not all that expensive.
There's really nothing you can put in there that can go as quickly, as
cheaply, and as easily AND be as reliable in that application.
In a car like this, a 2110 or 2180 would be nutty, and even a 1776 bug motor would be fun.
That'd be pretty cool, i dont know anything about these cars or Bug engines
so i dont really know their capabilities. If i did get this car (if its for
sale and i could afford it), then i wouldnt need anything too fast (not
sure what exactly is in it now) so i think atleast those first 2 engines
would be alittle crazy (and wouldnt know where to find one). I'll try to
find out more about the car... and Bug engines and remember what their
capable of and then maybe ask more questions about this, thanks Chris
EDIT: Know any good sites to read up on Bug engines of that era?
Better idea than websites is to pick up a copy of hot VWs from your local
But you can look on their website: http://www.hotvws.com/
or The Samba website, or for the ultimate VW engine:
Alright thanx Chris. We dont have newstands here, so where else could you find it, maybe in convience stores, maybe Canadian Tire, or would i have to go to a book store?
Shhhh...don't tell them about Canadian Tire, they'll make fun of us. Its better if they don't know...
I still don't see you putting anything up for the trade. Besides, I've got
plans for the 460. That leaves the 351.
If it's in a school yard just go up to the office and ask one of the secretaries. They should be able to tell you something about it.
While I'm sure you could stuff a V8 in there, I don't think it would really help the car much. Unless you could go with a mid-engine set-up. Now you're talking MAJOR fabrication.
As for my car, I still have it. Like I stated above, my plan is to stuff a 2.3L turbo motor in the back. Already have the motor, all I need now is an adapter plate and some time.
Anybody want to work for me so I can spend some time working on my cars? :hi:
How bout I'll give you my shitty 2.3 liter that doesn't wanna start without a jump now so you can have 2 motors and this one only has 64k miles :laughing:
Sorry, wrong info.. :doh:
Well when you put it that
