Born at the Beach: 1969 Bradley GT

Most of the kit cars built by in the 1970s had a certain boat-like construction/shape and the Bradley GT was no exception. The GT was the result of collaboration between David Bradley Fuller (who owned a small fiberglass shop) and Gary Courneya of Gary’s Bug Shop in SoCal which sold parts for the dune buggy market. The GT used an original type 1 Beetle chassis, but the seller of this one mentions a Ghia as donor for the engine. Find this 1969 Bradley GT offered for $10,500 in Malibu, CA via craigslist.
