Design for Bricklin car company.
This strikingly handsome sports car design was designed for Malcolm Bricklin's unsuccessful car manufacturing effort of the mid-1970's. Handsomely engineered on the outside, the cars were poorly made and designed within and very few survive. Herb Grasse began designing cars professionally in 1968 for Dodge. He worked for Chrysler, Ford and Nissan, and eventually had his own design firm. From 1973-75, he was Chief Designer for Bricklin. He died in 2010.
