Bradley 1970



The first production GT was delivered in September 1970. The car IS available in kit form in different levels of completeness, or as an assembled vehicle. A completed GT weights approximately 1,600 lb (725.7 kg). The body is a two-seat coupe with low curved sides and no doors. Weather protection is provided by two plastic roof panels hinged up gull-wing style. The body is in fiberglass and designed to mount on a Volkswagen Beetle chassis. The GT thus inherits its 2,400 mm (94.5 in) wheelbase. Suspension front and rear is via the VW's transverse torsion bars and trailing arms. The default power-train is likewise the air-cooled four-cylinder boxer engine and four-speed manual transmission with swing axles from the Beetle.
