Hello my fine finned friends. I visited with a nice 86 year old
gentleman yesterday who is selling his 64 white Amphi. I just wanted
to share with you some thoughts about the car and its condition so as
to avoid anyones possible disappointment.
The car is located in New Hampshire. It is white with a black top
(new) and a red and white interior. The car has recently been
painted. The side mouldings have been removed (you know what that
means). there has been extensive manipulation of the wiring and many
of the origional swiches have been replaced. It has had a replacement
speedometer installed but the origional one is in the glove box. I
reads about 8700 miles but I can assure you that in my opinion it may
have been broken for a while.
The car does run and drive on land. I did not take it to water as
it was not registered but I did engage the props and they both spun.
One thing I did want to mention was that the prop shifter resembled
the one that TOMMY IN TAMPA said that Harold has (when you put is in
forward it almost touches the floor)

Basically here is a brief summary:

the rear quarters have been cut off and some work has been done
and rust is comming through again
The doors both appear to have rust repair in them and they do not
line up well
It need all of the tires replaced, most of the wiring put bak
together properly and I am sure there is more that I forgot at this
moment.
The trouble with the car and why I didn't buy it was that the
gentleman wants $19,000.00. I can not find it in my heart to tell him
what I thought it was really worth.

I have a 64 Amphi project, actually three of them. One has to go. Some
pics are at www.midwestamphicar.com under For Sale. I am looking for
offers under or at 8k for grey/blue car. Hood, engine cover and doors
are very good, but still will need blasting and repairs. Drop offs and
trays are poor. Basic hull looks good. Later Dave the Wave

I will be looking at an unrestored one owner low mile, never hit, nearly
rust free Amphi. Moderately priced. If interested let me know. Later

Looked at Tom Jones Alaskan Amphi now in Madison Wisconsin. If You have
been looking for a car to hit the key and go, this may be it. It shifted
smoothly, brakes etc all good. Very clean Amphi- minor putty in rear
quarters. Later Dave the Wave

Hi

How much are you asking for it? Is the red amphi from Portland, Or still available? We live north of Seattle, Wa.

Thanks

Cheri,

I have a red Amphicar in Portland that I am going to sell. I'm putting
together a comprehensive set of photos right now, but you can see some
online here:

http://www.portlandducks.com/BestofPortland.pdf
http://www.portlandducks.com/about.html

I'm selling it to help fund my $220,000 purchase of a 2006 Hydra Terra
amphibious bus. I'm going to kick off the "Portland Ducks" Land and
Water Tours in April 2006. It would be sweet to have some Amphicars in
attendance for the big splash down!

My red Amphicar is a '67 in pretty good condition (i.e. sweet paint
job, new top, new interior, runs great, drives great, etc.). I'm
selling it for $19,500 to insure a quick sale. More info to come
soon...

Charles- Be sure to send me the info and photos for this car so I
can get an ad in the website for you. See ya on the 10th or 11th!

Cheri - This is the other car I emailed you about. I would say it is
a fair deal for sure. If you want an Amphi (and one close to you),
this is a great candidate.
