lowest mileage Amphicar

Hi there everyone.
I was wondering what the lowest mileage Amphicar that was street legal is?
I know there is a car with a lot less than 600 miles that has a tag and insurance and I was wondering if that is the lowest mileage car on the road.
I have seen the car. I am sure there are some museum cars with lower mileage but not many I would guess.
Is anyone aware of a driving Amphicar with lower miles?
Be good you guys. Tommy in Tampa

Ibought my car with 469 original miles on it, but now I am up to almost 2,100
miles! Still pretty low by today's standards.

I'm told there is a benchmark car in the German club that is effectively new, that is less than 100 miles.

At the other end of the scale although mine is quite high at just over 60,000 miles, there is at least one German car that has been around the clock in Kilometers which is 62,000 miles.

Mine had about 4600 original miles on it when I sold it last month, and had been continuously licensed and on the road for at least the last 10 years that I am aware of.

Congratulations!! I know you feel great about finishing. I remember when I thought I was finished over a year ago & THEN needed a new transmission AND a new engine. I'm done now too. See you in Celina. Ina in the Boro

Ina,

When it comes to Amphicars, there is no such thing as done. :)

A few years ago I believe that Mike Echemann bought a 77 and 350 mile Amphicars here in PA (Clarion). From what I understand he sold the 77 mile one and may still own the 350 mile one?

Nice to see some chatting.
People plone me all the time saying they are buying a low milage car.. It only has 4,ooo miles on it,, of coarse my reply is thats all most got..
anyway One in Oshawa Ont. Museum, been there since new with 8o miles on it.
My Dan A car had 7,250 when I got it after trip to Fl this spring it now has over 8,000. My last day down there Dan Borgman and I crossed a very large lake with it.. It was soooo hot.. Had to open the vent windows to get a breeze.
