For Sale: 1975 Bricklin SV 1 in Allentown, Pennsylvania

$16,995 (OBO)

Vehicle Description

7,250 original miles!!

Bricklin's were a bit of an oddity, made for only two years for a grand total of 2854 cars. Many owners thought of their car as something special to be cherished.  Consequently, there are a fair number of low milage survivors. This car provides an oportunity to get into one of these low milage cars and be able to drive it or make it into a show car. 

This car  was sold new in Easton, PA in 1985, the dealer kept the car for 10 years. The car has never been more than 80 miles from the original dealership. There is some documentation of the history including; the original window sticker, a letter from the Bricklin Owners Club congratulating the new owner on his purchase in 1985, a service receipt from 1985 noting the mileage as 500, the service record from earlier 2016 noting the mileage as 6991. The car was revived in 2016 from a long period of storage. All fluids and belts were replaced, the brakes were completely serviced, the fuel system was serviced and carburetor rebuilt. The car runs very well. We put about 200 miles on it in the fall of 2016 and it performs well for a Ford 351 engine. I had the exterior professionally detailed and the finish came right up but I have been driving the car since the detailing. The car comes with factory owner's manual, factory service manual, factory parts book and the paperwork for the radio. The keys are the original Bricklin script keys.

Despite the low miles there are a few things that have been changed over the years, some of which count as improvements; the leak and failure prone hydraulic doors have been updated to pneumatic and the pump has a switch on the dash, also the radio was changed. I believe the steering wheel is not stock but I could be mistaken about that one.  The carpets were replaced with the proper type and color.

There is a chip on the edge of the left front wheel opening. Otherwise, the body is amazingly good for a Bricklin. 

You want a low mileage example with documentation and paperwork, this is the car for you.
