Very Rare 1964 Amphicar 770 Local Garage find offered for sale to the public for the first time ever by Gas Monkey Garage with   showing 3993 miles owned by one family since new. The Amphicar was designed to be marketed and sold in the USA. Compared to most boats or cars. its performance was modest(the model designation comes from a top speed of 7 Knots on the water & 70 MPH on land. making them the fastest boat on land & the fastest car in the water!). and less than 3900 were produced by 1965. Nevertheless. it is still among the most successful amphibious civilian autos of all time. and still often prized and preserved as collectible automobiles today. The Amphicar qualifies for the carpool (not the carpool lane. he actual car pool!) In 1965. two Amphicars successfully navigated the Yukon River in Alaska & two Amphicars crossed the English Channel in 1968 enduring 20-foot waves and gale-force winds! President Lyndon B. Johnson was known as an owner of an Amphicar. Johnson. a known practical joker. was said to enjoy frightening visitors at his Johnson City. Texas ranch by driving them downhill in his Amphicar. directly into his property's lake. all the while shouting that he had malfunctioning brakes! We found this very well preserved one family owned Amphicar 770 here locally having been stored in a garage since last being enjoyed in 1989. We brought it back to the shop preserving the condition just as we found it after being stored for nearly 25 years and are offering it for the first time to the public. The car is complete (including the propellers & shafts!) needing complete servicing before enjoying due to time in storage. we have not attempted to start it & due to our filming schedule will not be able to perform any service (we really wish we could build all the cars we find. but we can't!) ) This will be seen on an upcoming episode of the hit show Fast N Loud. The winning bidder will have the option of taking delivery on the show. If you're looking for a good complete 1964 Amphicar for a restoration project you won't find a better example that's priced for sale. This is an excellent candidate for a Museum Quality Restoration or Advertising and Promotional . Clear Texas Title in hand!  We sell internationally as well as locally and will end the Auction when it sells! We'll assist with transportation logistics. Low feedback bidders with less than 5 feedbacks contact me BEFORE bidding by sending your contact info to “ask seller a question” See all pics & ask any questions. And as always. all of our Hats. t Shirts. Hoodies and Stickers etc… are available on our website. THIS WILL GO TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER!
