=========================


http://www.barrett-jackson.com/carlist/cardetails.asp?In_AuctionID=221&In_LotNumber=420


1967AMPHICAR770CONVERTIBLE


Lot Number: 420
Reserve Type:No Reserve

<!-- Target Time:
1/17/2007 10:00:00 AM< -->
<h2>Options</h2></td>


Engine: 1147
Transmission Type: 4-SPEED
Horsepower:43
Cylinders:4
Exterior Color:BEACH SAND WHITE
Interior Color:RED/WHITE





<h2>Description</h2>


Of the few remaining Amphicars this is the finest example in existence. An over the top "true" restoration. taken down to the raw body. It was 100% disassembled and received a nut and bolt restoration. Every "wet" part was powder coated. The body is arrow straight and finished correctly in beach sand white with red/white interior. Since completed she has only 600 test miles and 3 short "swims." No other vehicle attracts the attention as the Amphicar. Very few are left in existence and none like this. All manuals, literature, paddle and juoges restoration album stay with car. This car is a finer example than the Amphicar sold right here at BJ last year for $124,000.00. Perfect for the particular collector or museum.

Soooo, that means that one wasn't the best one out there-----------



Please, please, someone record this to show how these things work, either way should be better than a bowl game, free booze, pretty girls pushing the bidders onward and upward to new levels------or maybe Knott



Lets have a contest--I'll give a brand new, never worn 06 Celina T-shirt to the person that guess's the sailing price, closest one winds--ties go to earliest guess---guess should be for total paid, including all fees ect ect.



My guess is------it won't sell---reserve toooooo high,



not that I know what that would be but probably 100K



Its been kinda slow lately, maybe this will get a little activity going.

BJ sells with no reserve, so it sells for what it brings.

It'll be a good market test I think. If 100K plus was a fluke this
2nd car will show it. If the second goes 100K plus then guess what
they are worth....

I saw a show on Speed called "Barret-Jackson: Life on the Block" last
weekend and it had a little blurb on the Amphicar sold. Showed the
sale, the seller and more shots of the car. The Amphi sure had a
following as it went on the block.

Gee, I certainly wouldn't call this a "correct" restoration. Where's
the black dash that 67's had? Where's the rubber along the top of the
radiator shroud? The air cleaner nut is wrong, the hose clamps are
wrong. Those are just a few things I noticed within a few seconds.
It may be a rather nice restoration but I would tone down the write up
a bit, but I guess BJ is essentially a used car salesman and that's
just what they do. Strange though since I heard that BJ was being
particularly tough this year on what cars they were letting in.

I believe they turned down 5,000 cars last year even at no reserve
only entry. BJ picks what they consider the cream of the crop, and
more then likely choose the vehicles they feel will bring the most
$$$$$$$.

They did over 100 million last year and just the 8% fee from the
buyers gives them 8 million not counting the seller fees, TV rights,
bidder seats & passes, etc. Quite the 4 day money maker.
