  2. Re: is this some other kind of DeLorean

    No, that is not a DeLorean. It is a Bricklin. No association to the DeLorean, except the Gull Wing doors.

    I took this from a Bricklin car club website ( www.bricklin.org):

    The Bricklin is a gull-wing sports car that was manufactured primarily from Detroit parts in 1974 through early 1976 in New Brunswick Canada for exclusive sale in the United States. There were 2854 cars built before Bricklin went bankrupt. An estimated 1500 still exist today. Bricklin International (BI) reports 350 active members with cars on the road and in restoration.
    The single model built was given the designation SV-1, for Safety Vehicle 1. It had a built in roll cage, side guard rails and shock absorbing, 5-mph bumpers that receded into the car. It was not only safe in an accident, but had the power and handling to avoid one. The Bricklin far exceeded safety requirements of the time.

    Like the DeLorean which came after it, the Bricklin was a futuristic vehicle which was well liked by owners and the automotive press, but was never produced in large enough numbers to be profitable. Bricklin owners have a club which publishes a quarterly magazine and sponsors yearly meets on the east and west coasts.


    Pictures of Club Members' Bricklins
    The second distinguishing design feature of the Bricklin (besides the gull-wing doors) is the acrylic body. A vacuum forming process bonded color-impregnated acrylic to each fiberglass body panel. The Bricklin was delivered to the customer without paint. Minor scratches would be buffed out. The Bricklin came only in the standout colors of :
    Safety Red Safety Orange Safety Green Safety Suntan Safety White

    All the cars were black below the belt-line and had beige interiors. In keeping with the safety theme, there was no ashtray or cigarette lighter.



    Now DeLoreans: Produced in 1981-83
    Comes in one color from the factory: Stainless Steel
    You can paint it, but why the hell would you?

    For a whole lot of in-depth information on the Bricklin, visit the Bricklin International web site at www.bricklin.org

    DeLoreans and Bricklins are a hell of a couple of cars. Both are REALLY unique, both are great cars. Good luck on your search for more information.

    Not bad, but check this one out for $7000. Perhaps some of you may offer an opinion on this deal 81 model with questionable engine for $7000+/12K miles.

    Second, what else should I ask about / be concerned about on this
    vehicle? Here are the vehicle pictures and information:

    Would I be OK if I bid under $10,000 for this car and fix it. The car
    only has 12K miles.

    What should I ask about on this vehicle based on what is already
    given? Thanks.
