Default Newest Project

Hey everyone.

Donnie here in North Carolina . Just wanted to share my newest project. Its a Bradley GT2 that I purchased for $500 US. I recently changed my website brand from priceofhistoys.com to fiberclassics.org and as part of that switch I will be doing a full tutorial on how you can build on of these for $2500 USD.

The goal is to show people that you can build a really cool kit car that will be fun to drive with a little investment. Because kit cars in general seem to be fading in the US it is my hope to get at least a handful of people fired up.

Thanks!

Bradley Automotive was one of the more popular kit car companies in the USA. They made almost 10,000 of the bradley gt and 500-1000 of the GT2 .

The GT2 was their idea of giving a kit car more of a production car feel.

Looks like quite a challenge - good luck!

Are those car seats or armchairs I see in the picture of the interior ?

HAHAHA. Those are seats.

Not a challenge at all. Remove the body, clean up the chassis, paint body, finish interior, etc.

Once I start I figure It will be on the road come spring.

I REALLY LIKE SOME OF THE AMERICAN OFFERINGS FROM THE 70'S AND 80'S...They have a quirkyness about them that is quite retro nowadays ...

That looks like a Beetle based car if the gearstick is anything to go by ...

I had a half Beetle , half subframed Manta Montage with a Renault V6 in it years ago that was imported from the U.S. I loved that car ...

Glad to see you are still actively working on kits!
Does it have an engine in it?

Looks to be a great project for very little $$$.
Absolutely loving the alloys. Seems like they were quite popular when these kits came around but you rarely see them these days.
It's going to be a looker on those for sure!

Saw this and immediately thought that you would find this interesting...
Shades of classic corvette and Cadzilla all rolled into one -
