    I bought a 1900 mile green 67 Amphi. My thoughts were to make it for me
    with some non original/ custom add ons. When I received it, it was much
    nicer than anticipated. With near perfect body and original interior.
    Car runs perfect with a like new trans. All original down to floor mat,
    muffler, and little strings that had info tied to them. Margie made it
    clear that she did not like the color combo and really is enjoying the
    red 66. Iam getting brakes and some items operational. A quick paint job
    and this pearl will be heading for Ebay. If you know of some one that
    wants a true original car to restore while they drive and swim, let them
    know. Later Dave the Wave. Viva Celina!

    I can concur with Dave's assessment below, having personally examined this
    Amphi at his request prior to his purchasing it. It's original right down
    to the factory chalk marks on the rear passenger seat black fiberboard base:
    A really promising low-fuss restoration project in the truest sense of the
    word: Stone original. I'm not sure it's a '67 though. More likely it's an
    later-intermediate model, like a '64 or '65, with some typically early model
    features like the screw-type bilge plug and some later features like the
    quarter panel bottom lip. It's a promising ride though, that's for sure.
    The interior really was SUPRISINGLY nice when I saw it, and it probably
    cleaned up real shiny. It has the original suppository-shaped
    muffler...Hell, even the damned oil filter was an original. This Amphi's
    neglect was checked well in time thanks to Dave, so with a little TLC this
    could easily become what other marque aficionados might dub a "concourse"
    example: an original's original.

    In short, if anyone's out there sitting on the fence looking for a good one,
    here it is. And what's the matter with Fjord Green with an Apricot interior
    anyhow? After a while, it grows on you...Really.
