Hey guys I don’t know anything about cars but I’ve always wanted to restore old cars.
I found a very old GT 2 and a very very old Peugeot. I think I want to go with the GT 2 cause it really looks cool. But it has not seats and the insides is empty except for a sterling frame The outside doesn’t look too bad. Paint work could do it.
But then again I don’t know what I’m doing, I’m thinking I can get a rough estimate to know how much it would cost to see if I should do it or not
Well...thats a pretty loaded question..."How much will it cost"?
Can you do any of the work yourself? If not you will likely spend more in paint alone than the car is worth.
How is the windshield? They are essentially unobtainable (yes, one may pop up occasionally). Have you inspected the wiring? I can assure you it will likely need a total rewire. To do so really requires you to split the body from the frame. Can you do that and the wiring? If its been sitting you will have to go through the entire braking system. While not expensive if you can do it yourself it is time consuming. I am sure suspension parts will need a full rebuild as well. Can you do that? Fuel system will likely need a good cleaning. The tank is custom so inspect it well. It will likely need to be boiled out at least.
Seats are custom shells made for the Bradley that might be found used. You would have to have them covered professionally.
What about an engine? Does it have one? What year? The tranny should be fine as those are relatively bulletproof for stock powerplants.
So...do your math. A well done Bradley GT2 (good paint, good engine, wired correctly, nice interior, good glass) would go for $5000-$6000 on a VERY good day to the right buyer. If you can't paint you might likely spend just that on paint.

shawklein: I am a new first time owner of a 1980 GT2 and I'm slowly learning parts I am in need of. Does anyone have an extra of the triple striker used to latch the front assembly cover? Or what have people used if this is missing?

steve09: I am a pasted Bradley GT II owner, having build 2 of them from scratch. At one time I considered becoming a “dealer”. I have just found a box of old Bradley Sales materials in excellent shape and I was wondering if it might be worth anything.

r3fab: Tried some Triumph GT-6 seats, about the lowest seats ever made, and still too tall! Quick answer appears to be fabricating seat backs to work with the floor and padding. At only 5'10" this is not an issue I expected.
