1967 Amphicar 770


Rare Fjorda Green with white convertible top. A little older professional restoration with new interior, newer convertible top, newer boot, new medallions, strong engine, rebuilt carburerator, complete fuel system, good wheel cylinders and brakes. Very nice cosmetically and mechanically. It is a must see car to appreciate.This 1967 restored Amphicar 770 drives like it should and it does float, we proved it.This vehicle was done right with a quality repaint and all new rubbers and tires. Runs as if it were new. The last vehicle of this quality sold at Barrett-Jackson for 125k. It is comfortable enough to drive 500 miles a day. Amphicar cost $5MM to design in the late 1950's. It is totally watertight. The engine is in the rear, the same as used in the Triumph Herald. 1147CC 43HP, transmission drives rear wheels through unique land/water gearbox. Many Amphicar employees came from Borgward and there are many parts in common between the cars. Much of the braking system and suspension is Mercedes. The transmission internals are Porsche 356 as are some parts of the fuel system. In 1967 the Amphicar Corporation was owned by the Quandt Group who also owned, and still own, a controlling share of BMW. Amphicar is great in the snow, better than many 4x4s with 10 inches of ground clearance, a totally flat bottom and narrow rear wheels give tremendous traction and ability. To date no one has managed to improve on the original Amphicar. The last two companies to attempt production of Amphibious vehicles were Hobbycar of France and AmphiRanger of Germany. The production was always small scale/build to order, but it's sad that the factories finally closed in 1996. - Amphicar.com
