Fete du Canada – 1975 Bricklin SV-1

July 1, 2015

There’s nothing to make a Canadian’s heart swell with pride like talking about the home automotive industry. Recent cars include the full-size Ford Crown Victoria, but along with Volvos and various American cars (including some Canada-specific brands and models like the Acadian), there was nothing that was exclusively Canadian in the way this car was. That’s right, it’s the unsuccessful attempt at a sports car known as the Bricklin SV-1, a sort of safety car for people with a vague idea of fun that includes gullwing doors, a 351 Ford with C6 automatic, and AMC Hornet suspension and brakes. Check out this 1975 Bricklin SV-1 for sale for $2750 in Fort Collins, TX.
