Yes John,

I have the same on one of my cars. I think it was to make our cars float better. Alongwith the hardwood window stops, We are ready to cross any body of water without worrying about buoyancy. (The more wood the better as they say!)

I have an original '63 very early VIN# that has 2 wooden mounts with
the leather straps in the stock location behind the rear seat. They
look factory and fit perfectly. Has anyone else seen these?

The car also has a large bilge plug which I thought was indicitive of
late cars only. Humm?

John,

I don't know why all the Amphicars didn't have those wooden blocks
since I presume they were to space the pole away from the cross member
a bit to allow for the lamp head to clear.

Someone, I think Hugh, told me that the bilge plug size and the heater
location were functions of the factory that built the car rather than a
of early or late production. It could be a bit of both since it's
possible that all the early cars had one system and the later system
came along when they opened a second plant. I don't know if both
plants were operating from the beginning.

I think it's strange that so much is unknown about the production of
these cars since I imagine that many people who worked at the plants
are still alive. Maybe the German club knows but won't tell. Is
anyone friendly with the German club memebers who might be able to ask?
