1967 Amphicar 770
ONE FAMILY OWNED, NEVER RESTORED, FIRST TIME FOR SALE SINCE 1967! AMPHIBIOUS!
HIGHLIGHTS: Wow! 11,000 miles! Unrestored, one-family owned Amphicar never before offered for sale since new! This Amphicar is in well-preserved original condition, on consignment from the same family that purchased it new.
BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this Amphicar is one of the best things about it. It's solid, mostly straight, but does have some dings, dents, and minor repairs that tell a story and show where it's been. For a 54-year-old car that hasn't been restored or even fully repainted, we are amazed at the condition of the body.
PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: The Beach White paint appears to be original on nearly all of the car, save for some obvious areas where touchups and repairs have been performed over the years. It still has a good shine on it, though a careful, professional buff may bring additional luster to it. There are some minor chips and stains to be found here and there, but keeping in mind the age of the vehicle this paint is in great condition.
INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: Getting inside this Amphicar is….confusing. It's not hard to get into or anything, it's just a little odd to step into a car only to suddenly feel like you're sitting in a boat! Much like the exterior, the interior is in surprisingly good condition for the age of the vehicle. The seat material is intact and in nice original condition, and even the door panels and original floor covering are nice! There are some minor imperfections and signs of age here and there, but at well over 50 years old this car has earned the right to show its age.
MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Under the hood is what is believed to be the original Triumph-sourced 1147cc 4-cylinder engine. This engine puts out roughly 43HP, and runs well with a very Triumphant sound. This car is also said to have most of its original rubber, including the tires. The brake hoses are the only known replaced rubber items on this car. The tires are Holland-made Vredsteins, and if they aren't the originals they are surely close to it. Even under the hood and underneath the amazing originality continues!
WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: It's a car, it's a boat, it's a convertible! What's not to love about a funky, rare,car/boat? This thing is a conversation starter!
WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: If you don't like highly original cars, or being approached about the unique vehicle you're driving, this probably isn't the one for you.
DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? That really depends on what you want to do with it. Want to drive it? It will need a few things that are needing replaced I.E. tires and belts. However, want to show it, or add it to a collection? It's ready for that as it is!
WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? If you're looking for a car that is also a boat, look no further!
