Blaupunkt radio

I was rummaging through the basket of loose items I was given when I purchased
my '67 amphicar and found a Blaupunkt am/fm/marine band radio. Is this original
Amphicar? Should I covet this and try to resurrect it?

From what I understand, all Amphicar radios say AMPHICAR on the
front. There is a pic of one in the files section under "Amphicar Art"

Randy,

Doesn't sound like anything I'd like to have in my Amphi. Ha, ha. I'll be
happy to make you an offer.

According to a rare posting by Hugh Gordon in the List Archives at
http://www.escribe.com/automotive/amphicar/m2082.html , Motorola appears to
have been the manufacturer of the original dealer-installed radios, at least
in the USA. According to Hugh, who would know of these things, "There is
one type of North American radio which will easily sell for $800 not
working. It is an early Motorola type with the word "Amphicar" in place of
the usual Motorola name. Ranchero Motors aka Amphicar Corp contracted with
Motorola for a single year run. At all other times the generic Motorola was
a local dealer installed item."

With that said, one DOES see an awful lot of old Blaupunkts in Amphicars, so
there's no reason not to keep yours assuming it works.
