I had a well crafted post put together about this cost of this car then I just deleted it. WHAT THE HELL IS THIS SELLER ON? A 50k starting bid for a kelmark is absurd. A 100k BIN price is just plain ridiculous. I do not know about all of you, but even with its complete resto, and use of quality parts during the rebuild there is not a $35,000 price tag there that I can see. I personally do not care what the seller invested in it.
I think it is a well done, good looking car. It very well could be the best I have ever seen, but not a chance does it sell for anywhere near the $50k reserve or does anyone BIN for 100K
Vito emailed us a few kelmark production photos. I really do not have any info or dates on them just the photos.
Check out this pretty clean looking Kelmark. Not really much to go by in the auction but it looks to be a good looking car and with a little work could be a great looking car. It is a no reserve auction with a little more than 6 days left at the time of me posting this.
My personal car is available for sale on ebay. I am not going to bore everyone with the specifics but if you want to get a brief walk through of the build and can be found here http://bradleygt.com/index.cgi?board=general&action=display&thread=811
Auction is starting at $3750 and no reserve or you can BIN for $4250
Here’s the quintessential Kelmark it’s even in many ways what I would call a quintessential Kit Car.
It appears to be made very well and made right to letter of the Kelmark manual, yawn.
The color is nice and it is ready to drive,
Sadly as wonderful as I find the Kelmarks this one just seems a bit dull to me I also would have to wish the seller a lot of luck getting that asking price.
However, like I always say if a persons dream in a Kelmark this might be the one to wheel and deal on.
NOS Energy Drink contact me a few weeks ago after seeing my car at a local track. They were interested in using it as a promo car for the Sebring 12 hour race. The synergy green paint is pretty close to the can color of their charged citrus drink. They added a set of rims and graphics and I think the transformation looks great.
And just in case you are curious about what kind of car it is. The back half is a bradley gt and the front is a kelmark gt. I am not sure of the history of the car but someone thought it was a great idea to combine the two. I happen to think they were right. I do have it listed for sale on craigslist if anyone is interested.
If you are looking for information on the Kelmark GT be sure to check out http://kelmarkgt.freeforums.org/ . This forum is loaded with useful info on this great kit car.
If you have an unwanted project that is just taking up room we might be interested in it. Just remember we have been involved with kit cars and buggies for 20 years and we are not interested in paying a high price for something you might have been told was rare or one of a kind. We build our projects on tight budgets and that includes the initial purchase.
At this time we are not really interested in any Bradley GT projects. We have one body currently and one complete car.
We are also always looking for old emblems and various other parts from vw kit cars and buggies so keep us in mind if you come across something.
I am please to announce that the car is complete and on the road. There are still a few odds and ends to tie up just like any project but that is part of it. I hope you all enjoyed the progress and keep your eyes peeled for our next project. Also if you have a vw kit car project you are working on we would love to see it.
