Bricklin SV1 - 1975

The car Malcolm Bricklin built was called the SV-1, which stood for Safety Vehicle 1. Far exceeding safety regulations of the day, the car had a built in roll cage, side guard rails, and special bumpers that receded into the car enabling the car to absorb the impact of a five mile per hour collision without sustaining damage. More than just a safety vehicle, the car was initially powered by a 220 horsepower V8 by AMC and later by Ford’s Windsor V8 rated at 175 hp, and by any measurable standard was a formidable sports car for its day.

Through a vacuum forming process, the body of the Bricklin SV-1 was made entirely of color-impregnated acrylic over fiberglass. Thus, the vehicle was rust proof, it had no paint, and any minor scratches or imperfections could be easily buffed out. The 1975 Bricklin SV-1 featured here is finished in classic Safety Orange with a superbly kept Phoenix Brown interior.
