The Amphicar was an oddball car produced from early 1960 through 1965. The amphicar name came from the car’s abilities on both roads and in water. While it’s no speedboat, Time magazine famously said “the Amphicar would revolutionize drowning.” The small brand expected around 25,000 units would be sold, in actuality only about 3,000 examples were ever produced. Many of these made their way here to the U.S.
This later example (titled as a 1967 because that’s the year it was originally sold) has not seen the road in about 3 years and hasn’t seen aquatic use in over 8 years. We’ll be addressing the fuel-injection system that has been installed on the car and ensure this one is properly sea-worthy before it goes up for sale in the showroom.
