The Bricklin is a gull-wing sports car that
was manufactured primarily from Detroit parts in 1974 through
early 1976 in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada for exclusive sale
in the United States.
were 2854 cars built before Bricklin went bankrupt. An estimated
1500 still exist today. Bricklin International (BI) reports 570
active members with cars on the road and in restoration.
The single model built was
given the designation SV-1, for Safety Vehicle 1. It had a built
in roll cage, side guard rails and shock absorbing, 5-mph bumpers
that receded into the car. It was not only safe in an accident,
but had the power and handling to avoid one. The Bricklin far
exceeded safety requirements of the time.
