The safe sports car, built in Canada for the U.S. market. This Bricklin wears most of its original Safety Orange Acrylic layer that is bonded over the fiberglass body. The front and rear bumpers show no sign of being hit. There are a few small chunks of acrylic missing here and there. Stock, the Ford 351 was fitted with a two barrel carburetor, but this example has been upgraded with an Edelbrock 1406 600 CFM four barrel carb, a set of headers, and aftermarket cam. The motor runs strong, and the transmission shifts well. Other upgrades to the car feature an electric fan, and a conversion to air doors given how unreliable the electro-hydraulic systems were, however do note that there is a small vacuum leak therefor the door must be manually opened if the car has been sitting for a bit. Running the car for a bit to build up vacuum pressure. A common issue with these cars is the acrylic layer cracking with flexing of the body, which this car minimally suffer from, with cracking on the roof between the top of the doors.
