    Re: Anyone want a Bricklin?

    nice plug I don't know what one of these is worth but I just know that aren't exactly common and figured maybe someone would want it. He had 2 at one point and sold the other. So someone into Bricklins may already know about this car. This one wasn't for sale at that time. I think its been sitting for 10 years. He keeps it well trimmed around the car usually.

    Re: Anyone want a Bricklin?

    When I was in high school in the early '70s I worked in a hardware store. There was a guy who was an engineer that used to shop there. He had one. It was a col car and I liked the gull wing doors. Couldn't see owning a 2 seater car. Fast forward 30 years and I now own 3 Reattas [2 seater cars]!

    From what I have read and heard almost every one of them had to be retrofitted by owners with larger radiators due to a chronic overheating problem. Ford powered mostly I believe.

    Re: Anyone want a Bricklin?

    I can offer some clarification to these comments..
    The 1974 Bricklins were offered with the 360 AMC engine and Chrysler 727 automatic transmission, and perform well. Later Ford equipped models in 1975 are notorious for heating problems.

    A well maintained Bricklin will certainly need fewer maintenance dollars than other cars I have owned, and will provide the owner with a unique air operated gull wing door design.

    I always thought them to be odd and clunky looking. The front end is especially weird looking. I did not mourn the passing of Bricklin. They were the Aztek of sports cars

    That's a little harsh? I can think of a few other vehicles in the sports car realm that deserve that name a bit more. Like a Skelta G Force.

    They were sold by Oldsmobile dealers. Our exec director, Steve M says he even got forced to take them on in his dealer days. It seems odd they were AMC or Ford powered. I did an electric job in an Olds dealership in 1985. Crisconi Olds was moving from their long time home on South Broad St. in Philadelphia to new digs on Passyunk Ave near the airport. They still had some NOS Bricklin parts in stock including a set of fenders. I tried to buy them to no avail, they probably trashed them.

    Power train parts are readily available at affordable pricing..NAPA, etc.
    Body panels are in stock at two locations, and can be shipped in two days.

    Yes...fiberglass hoods, doors, etc are formed from the original factory moulds.
