I have had my original Amphicar since it was 3
months old. Having used ir continually over the
last 36 years, I have little restore experience.
The most that I have had to do was repairs to
the rear lower quarter panels and then a new
paint job on the sides below the "chrome" strips
and the rear between the lights and below the
engine hood. (Did put on a new top from Gordons).
I did most of the work myself and then paid for
the final paint job done by a moonlighter. Not
expensive. Put maybe a thousand into it.
I am presently in the process of restoring
number 2. It basically needs the same as number
1 plus a little. Don't expect that to cost too
much. I already have the new top (again from
Sounds like your car has spent its time in
better areas of the US. If your rust is truly
minimal and your tranny & engine are sound, I
wouldn't expect it to break the bank to restore.
It would be best if you called Gordons with a
list of needsand see what he says and talk to
one of these other group members who have been
through the process recently.
