Funnybug sez:

They just don't have the draw they used to

Ebay Description:

This is a great running kit car- 74 Bradley GT built on a late 60's VW pan. 1600cc motor- rear wheel drive. Good shifting 4 speed manual transmission. Starts up everytime. What you see is what you get in the photos. The interior is mostly complete minus seat coverings. Wipers and all lights work(however it needs new wiper arms). Street legal and currently licensed in Washington. Haven't had much of an opportunity to drive it in the weather we have been having. It does have a back window that is in my garage and screws on easily. I removed it so the kids could comfortably ride in the back jumper seat on short trips around town. The car has a great working, orginal am radio (if that can ever be said of an am radio). It still has the original bias ply tires that I would recommend upgrading to radials if you want some more comfort. They ride a little like a go-cart, but that may be what you like.

Mileage is unknown at this point since it is a built kit car. However, I realized that the odometer doesn't seem to be working correctly at this point.

Only has one seat belt in the passenger seat at this point. I was told it didn't even need them since it was "grandfathered in" but I was planning on just bolting some in for the kids at least.

As seen in the pics, there is some slight damage in the front that has cracked the fiberglass and chipped some other places. However, this is easy to fix with some fiberglass bondo that will restore the rigidity of the body. I was going to fix all the little chips and scrapes and repaint it.

Things to finish on it: The engine has the heat exchange boxes on the motor, but need the ducting ran under the body to give the car heat. Wiper arms. Emergency brake needs to be hooked up. It does not have the plexiglass gull wing doors. I was going to have some canvas ones built since the original ones are so hard to come by.

As seen in the photos, this is a by no means perfect, but for the money it is a very good running and unique start for you. I still get a ton of looks and have a lot of fun driving it around town.
