COMMENTS

You are looking at a very rare and collectible 1974 Bricklin SV-1. The Bricklin was manufactured for only 3 years (1974 -1976). This rare Bricklin is 1 of only 137 total cars that were ever built with a 4 speed manual transmission. The production date is 11/29/74. In 1975 and 1976 only automatic transmissions were produced. This 1974 Bricklin is equipped with the AMC 360 cubic inch V8 which was produced for the 1974 cars only. The 1975 and 1976 cars were produced with a Ford 351 cubic inch engine.

The Bricklin SV-1 was a gull-wing door sports car assembled in Saint John. New Brunswick. Canada. The body panels were manufactured in a separate plant in Minto. New Brunswick. Manufactured from 1974 until early 1976 for the U. S. market. the car was the creation of Malcolm Bricklin. an American millionaire who had previously founded Subaru of America. The car was designed by Herb Grasse. [1] Due to Bricklin's lack of experience in the auto industry. coupled with the funding problems. 2] the Bricklin factory was not able to produce vehicles fast enough to make a profit. As a result. only 2854 cars were built before the company went into receivership. owing the New Brunswick government $23 million.

The model name (SV-1). stood for "safety vehicle one". The original idea for the Bricklin SV-1 was a safe and economical sports car. but due to the added weight of the safety features. the car was inefficient and simply a safe sports car. The Bricklin was designed for safety with an integrated roll cage. 5 mph (8. 0 km/h) bumpers. and side beams. The body was fiberglass with bonded acrylic in five "safety" colours: white. red. green. orange and suntan. The cars had no cigarette lighter or ashtray. [3] Non-smoker Malcolm Bricklin believed it was unsafe to smoke and drive. The Bricklin is the only production vehicle in automotive history to have powered gull-wing doors. that opened and closed at the touch of a button. as standard equipment. (The later DeLorean DMC-12's gull-wing doors must be operated manually. )

There are only 1120 Bricklins believed to exist today. This white Bricklin has 36. 08 original miles and is equipped with the 360 AMC V8 and the manual transmission. If you are looking to own a piece of automotive history and invest in a fun to drive car that is sure to draw a crowd wherever she is driven and is sure appreciate due to its rarity then take a good look at this special Bricklin.
