Vehicle1980 Bradley GT II
Originally an ICE vehicle Purchased on
Ebay. Stock 74 VW frame which I had
stripped and powder coated.
Improvements include; Custom sub frame
made from welded tube steel. Sub frame
keeps batteries out of passenger
compartment. Headlight modification (no pop ups) to GT style headlights, Air dam mod for streamlining airflow around front battery rack. Still a work in progress.

This was my first. I got my feet wet with this car. I
learned a lot and now I am doing a 914 conversion. EVIE is a fair weather car. The Porsche (Otto) will be my all weather vehicle.
