History of the 1975 Bricklin SV-1

The Bricklin SV-1 was conceived in 1973. when the U. S. auto industry was in a slump due to fuel shortages. emissions regulations. and increased safety requirements. Subaru importer Malcolm Bricklin believed there was a seam in the market for a “safe” and individual sports car. so he persuaded the Canadian government to invest money for construction of such a car in depressed New Brunswick. Cost overruns and quality control problems with the inexperienced workforce led to eventual bankruptcy. The first Bricklins were built in 1974. and the factory shut down in late 1975. with a few 1976 models built from leftover parts.

Despite looking like a mid-engine two-seater. the Bricklin squeezed an AMC 360-cid V-8 under the car's sharply sloping hood. Later cars had a Ford 351 V-8 but only the first year offered a four-speed transmission. The bumpers at both ends of the car were massive urethane bolsters and the body was fiberglass. with color molded in. The doors were electro-hydraulically operated gullwings that weighed a hefty 100 pounds apiece.  

The “SV” (for “Safety Vehicle”) part of the name was backed up by the car's steel cage and big bumpers. Color choices were bold in virulent orange. yellow. and green. red and white. and tan. Interiors were typical 1970s. with button-tufted faux suede seats and AMC gauges. In all. 2. 97 cars were sold before the bailiffs appeared on the doorstep. A political scandal followed amid claims that the Canadian government had been trying to keep the factory open until the next election.
