I just picked up this former race car. It’s a Bradley GT on a stock chassis with an adjustable front beam, coil-over rear shocks and a cool “Barney purple” paint job. Its history was in PA running a series of hill climbs and auto-x. The pan is in GREAT shape with no rust! Just thought I’d stop by to see what everyone thought. I’ll be removing the rollcage and cleaning up the bare interior in the next few days.

overall pretty cool ....Keep the roll cage but cut it back in front at a slant and put a windshild on it with a center pipe to grab getting in and out. Is your goal to make it streetable ? or a trail ride .
I picked up a show car Bradley gt for pennies because the kids were afraid of the safety issues. These cars are so low that they would spin out before flipping or rolling over, but a collision is a whole different story. Keep the roll cage.
The wheels are pretty nice . for complete information on bradley cars builds etc. ck this out.

Here is the information you need for my GT and GTII CDs.
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 43 years and 645 thousand actual miles worth of useful information. Scroll down for the contents.
If you don't use PayPal, you can send $35 by check or money order to:
Jeff Troy 759 New Holland Ave. Lancaster PA 17602
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.

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.
