FOR SALE: 1975 Bricklin
Antique/Classic / Stratford, New Jersey
Just another rare classic offered by Black Tie Classics....... The 1975 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 2,854 cars were built before the company went into receivership, owing the New Brunswick government $23 million.
