 I also have this vehicle for sale locally and reserve the right to end this offering at any time.

This is a 1966 Amphicar 770 and is a two owner car.   In 2010 Rocky Mountain Amphicars did some work to ensure it was preserved in excellent working condition.

It has had a complete paint job. new upholstery. all new seals. gaskets. engine mounts. brakes. bilge pump. tires. top. muffler. tailpipe and front and rear bumpers  The original radiator. heater core and oil cooler were checked and all found to be leak free! Both radiator hoses and clamps are new and all heater hoses were replaced.   The fan shroud is painted black. has new rubber seals all around installed and assembled to radiator with stainless screws and bolts etc. It has a new fuel valve and the ON/OFF/RESERVE selector works as it should.   The wheels were sand blasted and repainted with epoxy.   It has the original 1147 triumph engine with less than 5. 00 miles.   The carburetor was overhauled.   The rear axles (also called drive shafts). have new spline boots and tight u-joints.   All 4 rear wheel bearings. hub keys. axle nuts and seals are new. All front wheel bearings and seals are also new.   The propellers are both original. in great condition and favored by many over new replacements.   All original controls work as built. bilge. blower. heater controls. wipers. head lights. cigarette lighter. etc. ; However. the horn is not currently working. :(

The Amphicar was built in Berlin Germany from 1961 to 1968.   The total production was 3. 78 vehicles and the Amphicar is the only civilian amphibious passenger automobile ever to be mass produced.  3. 46 Amphicars were imported into the United States between 1961 and 1967.  The Amphicar is rear engined and uses a 4 cylinder British-built Triumph Herald motor producing 43 horse power.

All Amphicars are convertibles. and the civilian models were originally offered in only 4 colors. Beach White. Regatta Red. Lagoon Blue and Fjord Green (Aqua).

The backbone of the Amphicar's electrics is basically a Lucas 12 volt positive ground system with certain items such as the horn. lighting and switches made by other manufacturers such as Hella and Bosch.

The Amphicar has a top speed of 7mph on water and 70mph on land. Hence. it was dubbed the "Model 770".   It is moved in the water by its twin nylon propellers. A special two-part land-and-water transmission built by Hermes (makers of the Porsche transmission) allows the wheels and propellers to be operated either independently or simultaneously.

The "land transmission" is a 4-speed-plus-reverse unit similar to those found in the old Volkswagen Beetles.  The "water transmission" is a 2-speed offering unique to the Amphicar featuring single forward and reverse gears.   In the water. the front wheels act as rudders.

This is an awesome running/swimming Amphicar. It will bring a smile to you and everyone you see while driving it.   This car is sold where is and as is.

Buyer is responsible for shipping.   Payment:  The purchase price MUST be paid for by cash in person. cashier's check (like you would get from most banks & credit unions). or bank wire.
