"This must be one of the world's most collectible classic cars; this example is completely original and complete. The car has been in dry storage for over five years, but it still runs and drives. The car will come with a fresh service and inspection."

Description

The car arrived in Sweden in 2007 and has since been owned by three car enthusiasts, the current owner in Borås since 2015. With its powerful wedge-shaped body design, full of 70s feel, folding pop-up lights, plush upholstery, cavernous V8 engine, and turbine wheels, this car is a joy to see and drive.
The car is complete, and it has only traveled just over 55,000 miles according to our calculations.
This car has an interesting history (see below) and a beautiful design that makes it appealing to both collectors and those who simply want a unique and fun car.
Also see Tekniks Värld nr 6/2020 for a test drive.

Facts about the model

American entrepreneur Malcolm Bricklin (born 1939) is a man with visions and grand car dreams. Early on, he introduced the subaru car brand in the United States by forming Subaru America. Later, car lover Bricklin would also start up US imports of Yugo and Chery. The import of new, little Subaru 360 went brilliantly; Malcolm's dream of a sports car under his own name quickly took off. Bricklin SV-1 ("Safety Vehicle 1") was built as a prototype in 1972 by legendary Bruce Meyers (the man behind beach buggy).
Mr. Bricklin went ahead with his concept of a beautiful, sporty and safe sports car. Young designer Herb Grasse, with a background at both Chrysler and Ford, had been working with George Barris when Lincoln Futura turned into the bat mobile show car. Production started in 1974 and confidence and confidence were strong. For who could really resist a stylish sports car with clean lines, pop-up headlights and Gull wing doors? It was decided that production would start in Canada.

The car wasn't just sporty; it was built after a vision with high safety thinking. On the sweeping front party there were hefty bumpers to spare pedestrians, along the sides of the body, clear black moldings ran. The body was made of fiberglass and underneath it there was a powerful pipe structure so that it would be as rigid and crash-proof as possible. The marketing material tells of a crash-proof car, but also about a car so fast and maneuverable that accidents could easily be avoided. You could get your Bricklin in five different colors, and all were black-lacquered under the body's waist line, just like the Ferrari 365 BB. The coupe was snug with carpets and brown beige plush-like attire mostly everywhere. The dashboard had deep-seated instruments in the driver's eye range sat speedometer and speedometer. On the right is the remaining four meters. The gear selector sits high on the center console, and the driver has a lot of room to rest the right arm on.

SV-1 was a luxurious and well equipped car. As standard equipment there was air conditioning, a low-mounted radio and digital clock. Customers had to cope with no cigarette lighters or ashtrays, Malcolm Bricklin claimed it was idiotic to smoke while driving.

The 1.23-metre low and 4.54-metre-long car has a sharp and hypermodern design. The sporty look required a sharp engine. The first 155 specimens built in 1974 in Canada were delivered with an engine from AMC, later all SV-1 Ford received 351 V8 (5,752 cm³), the "Windsor Engine". SV-1 is like a real dream car that mixes Corvette with DeLorean.

The price tag on the 1974 model ended up at $7,490 and by the time the 1975 model premiered, the price had jumped to as much as $9,980. The company expected to sell a thousand cars per month and the best monthly result was 429 cars. A total of 2,854 copies were manufactured before the project was closed at the end of 1975. It is estimated that barely a thousand copies remain today
