Interesting Used Car of the Week: 1971 Bradley GT

IMG_1997My apologies for not featuring a vehicle last week – I was on vacation and didn’t take my laptop with me.

However, while on my vacation, I spotted the subject of this week’s entry, the 1971 Bradley GT. It was at the Auto Collection, a car enthusiasts paradise at the Linq Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

OK, so I bet most of you are wondering – what is a Bradley GT?

Well, Bradley started out in the late-1960s as a kit car manufacturer, using Chevrolet Corvair and Volkswagen Beetle running gear to propel them. The GT featured here uses a 1.8L, four-cylinder motor from a VW. I’m not sure how much power this particular example is making, but my guess is it’s under 100 hp.

This example also features a four-speed manual gearbox, and has covered just 6,000 miles in the last 44 years.IMG_1996

It also features Lexan gullwing doors (which are detachable), and a removable rear window.

This is not the type of vehicle you’d buy to take it to your local race track for some quick laps, but for just pootling around town, or going to the beach, I think it is an interesting car to have. At just $16,500 – you’ll surely end up with a head turner.
