I talked with owner yesterday,
he has one cleaned up and ready to sell and other will be done by weekend.
He is asking $30,000.00 each for them, note they are not restored or even well looked after but are basicly rust free and will (may)swim.
they will be posting them on ebay in the future as they are a little to high in price for me to get involved..
makes me shake my head that I sold my fully restored 62 white in 2003 for $31,000. and delivered it half way..:012: but I was happy with that price at the time.:003:

I have not been following sale prices for a while but I have to imagine that the economic slump will have a detrimental impact on most classic cars (including Amphi) for the foreseeable future.* I*do know that many of the higher priced Amphis were paid for by people cashing in stock options, tapping easy home equity loans, etc.* Likewise, going to check out an Amphi halfway across the country was no big deal when fuel was < $2.000 per gallon.**I was at the big Hershey show two weeks ago.* Most of the cars that came to the car corral left without a sold sign.* A lot of owners have negative equity and consensus was that most of the cars were simply priced too high for the current market.* The times they are a changin, at least for a while.
 
I should learn to read all my emails first before asking you questions you
have already answered. Do you think he would sell them for less?

Personally I think this will be a lull, at least for Amphicars, that will make the soft prices look like bargains a few years from now. Would those who cashed in stocks or options to buy an Amphicar rather have those stocks now with 30% decline?
Speaking of which, about a month ago I bought a second Amphicar that was a 1 owner dealer car from Kalamazoo, Michigan- Luckily very near me and fortunately stored in dry barn. Very early (100477). There were actually 3 but someone else bought other 2. Car has just about every original part including pink spark plugs, tires, 4000 miles, even original undamaged visors! Does have some rust on very lower quarters, but completely shiny original paint on hull- inside and out with no hint of rust, perfect doors and steel hoods. Even original battery area with battery tray intact- have never seen one before. Hadn't been started since 1980 and engine was slightly froze. After dealing with no-spark and starter issue, unstuck it, changed oil, suctioned out 1/2 tank of 1980 leaded gas and it started right up and pers even on those original plugs. Kind of exciting to make it run after 27 year slumber. No brakes yet but drove around yard and hit all 4 gears and
trans was quiet and shifted good. Amazing with all this notoriety that these things are still out there.
