Old Amphicar Articles


Allan Woodcock

A friend of mine sent me original Amphicar articles from Popular Science
(July 1960) and Popular Mechanics (June 1961). I know I have seen these
somewhere on one of the Amphicar sites. Please tell me where.

The PS article shows an early version of the car with an Austin engine.
Was this a prototype or were some of these cars made? It appears that
they had not yet completed the upper body we are used to. The bottom
pan appears to be the same. Wheelbase was 80 inches.

The PM article shows a car with the radiator to the right of the
engine. How many of you guys have that kind of set up?

Can I send copies to anyone?
