Sold for US$ 8,960 inc. premium
1975 Bricklin SV-1 Two-Seater Gullwing Coupe
Chassis no. 00041BX5S002198

Manufactured from 1974 until early 1976, the car was the creation of Malcolm Bricklin, who had previously founded Subaru of America, and designed by Herb Grasse, the designer of TV's original Batmobile.

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, with an integrated roll cage, 5mph bumpers, and side beams. The body was fiberglass with bonded acrylic in five "safety" colors. The Bricklin was the only production vehicle in automotive history to have powered gull-wing doors.

The SV1 we offer here is finished in its original scheme of Safety White, contrasted with a tan interior. It was acquired by the museum in November 2011 from a local Chevrolet dealership. One of only 2,854 examples produced, Bricklin cars represent an interesting chapter in the tale of the automobile.
