UPDATE YOUR BRICKLIN

MAKE YOUR BRICKLIN DRIVE LIKE A MODERN SPORTS CAR
WITH OUR WIDE RANGE OF HIGH-QUALITY UPGRADES.

Air Door Conversion & Upgrades

Air Door systems are the most reliable power door system for your gull wing doors.  

Air door control panel offers seamless door operation at a faster open/close rate than the original unreliable hydraulic system.  Air power cushions and protects the doors from shock loads (speed bumps and driving with the doors open). Our door control panel integrates the door latch solenoids into the panel with the up/down solenoids for each door.  Extremly low electrical consumption ensures that even with a low battery your doors will open. Easy to reach door rate controls are on top.  Modern leak free components ensure your car is ready to go even after being parked for extended periods.

Air latch conversion system offers quicker, stronger latch releases that eliminate door opening failure.  This system eliminates the original latch solenoids and the faulty solenoid wiring without changing the “original look” of your Bricklin.  The weight of the 1960’s technology solenoids alone can cause door damage. A low battery can cause latch failure that may result in a bent door. The high electrical load just to open the door with the original hydrualic system can run the battery down.

Lightweight air tank!  Using an easy to mount lightweight, modern technology aluminum air tank with a water drain valve is the only way to go.  This is a 25lb weight reduction over the old steel air tanks.  An emergency tire inflation valve is conveniently located behind the license plate.

Avoid overpressure danger of other air systems.  Our air system includes an overpressure safety valve.  Older systems have no safety pressure relief valve.

Avoid the rust problems from the old style 31-pound air tanks that were first installed on Bricklins.   Much easier to mount than twin tank systems.

Air compressor kits   Install or upgrade to a state of the art air compressor kit. The kit includes new “quiet cushion” compressor mounts, compressor relay/pressure regulator, wiring, auto-reset circuit breaker, remote filter kit and covered  easy to view over-ride switch.

Tire inflation kit is available with our air system. The Bricklin SV1 has no spare tire or any type of tire inflation capability. The inflation hose simply plugs into the air system  to conveniently inflate a low tire (if the bighbricklin.com air system is installed).

  • Instructions included with all air system kits.
  • Tech Support Available, just call.
Suspension Restoration & Upgrades

Download “How To Get World Class Handling From Your Bricklin” Tech Article

Sagging and crumbling rubber bushings can cause ride height and handling problems.

Replace the suspension bushings with urethane bushings that will not rot or age like the original rubber ones while retaining “the original look”.

Replace any worn suspension parts:  Upper ball joints, lower ball joints, idler arm, tie rods and sleeves.  (The upper ball joints and idler arms wear out first)

Tighten up the suspension with correct modern technology shock absorbers.  

Stabilizer bar upgrade:  Replace the insufficient front stabilizer/anti-roll bar with the only bar made specifically for the 1974-1976 Bricklin SV1.   Increase traction, improve cornering, & eliminate dangerous over-steer. Give your Bricklin world-class handling.

Keyless Remote Doors & Hatch

Modernize your Bricklin without changing the “original look” with a keyless remote door/hatch/alarm system.

The ultimate cool factor with a Bricklin is remote control doors.  

Open one or both doors with one push on the key FOB Remote.  

Stop fumbling around with the keys and the outside buttons.  Open and close the doors from a distance.

Add Remote Hatch Release to make that trip to the store an excuse to drive the Bricklin.

No more opening the driver’s door and pulling the hatch release cable with your hands full of shopping bags.

Have the security of a modern High Tech Alarm system in your classic car that also has anti-car jacking capabilities.

Installation instructions included.

Radiator Upgrade

Give your Bricklin’s cooling system the best upgrade possible with a modern Aluminum high efficiency 3-row aluminum radiator built to fit directly into your SV1. These lightweight Aluminum radiators are coated to eliminate the mineral deposits that destroy factory style radiators.

Air Conditioning

A/C Upgrade kit: Get your Bricklin Air Conditioner working like a modern car!

  1. Replace the leaky A/C compressor front seal.  See our instructional video on Youtube.
  2. Stop hot engine compartment air from entering through the steering column.
  3. Block hot outside air from the cowling leak at the fan housing.
  4. Stop the blast of hot air from the failed parking brake boot.  See our instructional video on Youtube.

A/C upgrade Kit includes:

  • Steel Parking Brake Boot kit.
  • Steering column hot air sleeve kit.
  • Air intake to fan housing weather-strip seal.
  • Evaporator to fan box connection kit.

Upgrade to the A/C automatic engagement/full throttle cutoff system:

  • Get maximum power when passing automatically.
  • Prevents A/C engagement during engine cranking.
  • Increases A/C compressor life.

Note: We recommend using the original air condition compressor, replacing the front seal, use R12 refrigerant or 12A refrigerant only (call us for details). Do not use R134A refrigerant. It will leak out of the original hoses. R134A is not compatible with the original compressor, and the original lubricant. The original condenser works poorly with R134A refrigerant.
