Classic Car Overview

Gullwing doors, sharp-edge profile, and a true place in the history books this 1974 Bricklin SV-1 is one of those cars that will always be a curiosity for generations to come. So to find one that has been well-maintained and upgraded for better use is the kind of head-turning classic that you can enjoy for a value price. Many years before the Delorean, the Bricklin fulfilled our gullwing dreams although briefly. They made less than 3,000 examples total over less than a three-year run, and a first-year car like this is only 1 of 780. So with this kind of rarity, its nice to find an example thats so complete. In fact, with all the wild safety colors that were offered, you really want a white one like this. After all, it looks good in any era, and so it gives this famous classic a timeless appearance. Theres even room for a little extra flair with the color-matched rear louvers and bright extra-wide exhaust tips. But really, you like this one for the overall original quality you can see in all the pictures right down to the cool turbine-style wheels. The interior shows you more of the right care that has gone into this one over the years. Averaging about 1,800 miles annually means this has been used as a pleasure driver. So they have taken the time to also give it the right improvements. For example, the doors now work off of a more reliable air compression system than the original hydraulic-based system. Inside, youll also notice how the custom wood inlay on the dashboard really upgrades the whole atmosphere. And even the upgraded steering wheel and additional gauges give this more of a specialist sports car feeling. Youve also got an AM/FM/cassette stereo, power locks, and an alarm system. But even with all these improvements, theres still that 70s classic car atmosphere. You feel the unique Bricklin ambiance in everything from the thick pile carpeting, to the two high-back bucket seats with plush cloth inserts. Under the hood is what made these cars ready to take on the Corvette of the day. The 360 cubic-inch AMC V8, which is believed to be the original motor, meant this exotic had a reliable, mass-produced heart that is still easy to service today. In fact, it even has upgrades like an MSD ignition, electric fan, and a Holley 650 CFM four-barrel carburetor. That last one really lets the V8 inhale nicely for extra power, and it all gives a sweet sound to the refinished dual exhaust. And as a true cool cruising classic, its easy to drive thanks to the power steering, front disc brakes, wide BF Goodrich T/As, and an automatic transmission. The sale comes complete with plenty of paperwork, including maintenance records, build receipts, title documentation, service manuals, owners manual, and a reproduction window sticker. This is a unique piece of history subtly improved so you can enjoy it to the fullest. So if you like plenty of attention, dont let this Bricklin pass you by, call today!
