tires and judging standards

Marty and Caryl:
Sounds like you had a nice swim in your car. At least you were able to give
it a good test which seemed to go very well.

The original tires were either Ceat, made in Italy or Vredestein which were
made in Holland. Most seem to have the Vredestein tires and all sizes were
6.40-13. I much prefer the Ceat as the white wall is wider and it continues
to clean up with bleach white nicely year after year. A lot of owners use
radials today or get a set of reproduction tires from Coker Tire. These
will be Coker specials or U.S. Royal etc. and not an original brand. There
are plenty of original tire out there if you want to seach for a set however
the condition would be questionable.

There is no actual book/guide printed which gives detailed specifics
concerning proper factory compliance with originality. With the success of
Celina many new ideas have come to light and this has been one which has
been gently discussed. There is alot of Amphicar information and putting
such a manual or set of guidlines together would be possible. We don't have
any national judging where points are awarded. There are pro's and cons to
this especially where Amphi Fun is the theme.

Our Amphi arrived Saturday night, it had just begun to rain, could we
have expected anything less...After we looked it over, we knew we had
to swim in the morning.

We did swim and it was good, no wet feet, no unwanted water rushing
in?real good.

We couldn't get back out the ramp we dove in from and had to swim
over
5 miles to the nearest ramp...we did make it, and that was also good.

Question:
Is there such a book or literature that goes into depth with judging
standards or original equipment/appearance that will help us keep
original such as we have with another type of car we have.

What kind or brand of tires came as original equipment in '64 and can
we still get them. If not, what brand is recommended.
