1975 Bricklin SV-1

Canadians remember the Bricklin with mixed emotions. In 1974, American Malcolm Bricklin used funding from New Brunswick’s government to set up two manufacturing plants—in Saint John and Minto, New Brunswick. Despite its unique design and special features, the Bricklin was actually built with Ford and American Motors components.

Though it was assembled in Canada, the Bricklin was only sold in the United States. Bricklin Canada closed its doors in 1976, after manufacturing fewer than 3,000 cars.
