<font size="4">I'm sending out this note to see if anyone knows of an Amphicar shell that isn't worth restoring. Maybe they might sell it?

If he is just looking for a Amphi shell why not buy fiberglass
panels, etc from Gord and make one? If his Amphicar is anywhere near
worth restoring as you indicated cutting it up doesn't make much
sense.

Re: Re: looking for an Amphicar shell

If the fellow's in New Jersey like you say, then perhaps he may want to get in
touch with Billy Syx at East Coast Amphicar (Website:
http://www.amphicar.net/eca) by giving him a ring at 609-625-1015. It is quite
possible that Billy may have a "less restorable" shell to trade for the one
that is perhaps better suited to restoration that the fellow has now. Couldn't
hurt to call...

Re: Re: looking for an Amphicar shell

<table bgColor="#ffffff">
<font size="4">Sorry I didn't answer this before. I was away for the weekend. The guy, Ron Mule, owns a body shop. He seems to specialize in cutting up cars & redoing them on different chasis or wheels or whatever. I've never been there. My friend met him & learned all of this because he saw an Amphi sitting in his yard. It seems llike this guy Ron bought the car in California & had it shipped to NJ. When my friend Jim spoke with Hugh Gordon Jim discovered that Hugh knows the car & almost bought it.</font>
<font size="4"></font>
<font size="4">Why is he cutting it up? Who knows. I called over there on Thurs. & was told by an employee that now Ron decided that he was going to rebuild it or sell it. Ina</font>
