My Bradley GT and GTII CDs hold files of the complete, original assembly and wiring manuals, and any official updates. The GT CD also holds roughly 38 years and 645 thousand actual miles worth of useful information.

Be sure to state whether you need the GT or the GTII CD. The cars – and the manuals -- are very different.
One of the many advantages of the CD over an original printed manual is that you can take the pages you need out to the shop and not have to worry about dogging them with oil, grease or other shop debris. If you ruin a page, you can just print another.
One of my CDs just may be the best money you can spend on your car. I'm sure that anyone who has one -- and most owners do -- will tell you that it's extremely helpful.

Hi Jim, Welcome! That does not look too bad, if as stated the electrics are all working - headlights etc. Good idea to poke in under the dash and see if the wiring is neat and orderly or a rats nest of splices etc. If you find bad wiring and are good at it yourself it would be a bargaining point on the price. Interior is not really all that difficult. There are patterns that came with the original build kit for all the panels. Since you know Corvairs the car would be a shoe-in. Take it for a drive and check it out! Looks good to me!
Quote & Pix From Brian Boggs, Senior Member & inventor of "The Bradley Lift" - - - Here is how I lifted mine by myself. Four posts made up of two 2x4's with a spacer between them. Drilled holes every five inches for a carriage bolt. Positioned them by the wheel wells and slid another 2x4 through from one post to the other. Lifted at each corner one hole at a time. Then when its up you can slide the pan out to work on it then put it back when you are done.

None of the glass in a GT2 is flat except maybe the little sliders on the side. If you are referring to the sky-facing panels, they are tinted lexan or whatever plastic you favor. They are also curved but you could accomplish that with a heat gun after you cut them to size. Some 2's I've seen have the rubber seal wrapped on the panel, I like it on the support lip, makes a neater tighter job, Good Luck!
Make sure to specify that you want the GT2 CD because he also has one for the GT

Jeff amongst other great talents is also a musician, I can tell you that he might be out on tour playing right
now and it might take a few days for him to get back to you. I'd send him an email and make contact with him.
and wait to hear from him as far as instructions. You could also send a pm through this board and see if he responds.

kitcarguy: dx1 There is no way to tell what year the body is. The Dataplate (if there is one) will not give you any useful info.
