Touch-Up Paint and Insurance questions...

I just started "monitoring" this newsgroup consistantly, so forgive
me if these are oft-answered questions....

1. Does anyone know a specific year/type of touch up paint for a red
Amphicar? Spray and/or paint on kind? I know the original paint
codes if i want to get some mixed, but was looking for something
ready made to put on a few paint-chip areas....

2. Insurance - any good companies/suggestions that know the Amphi?
What would be a sample rate? I asked my company (Nationwide) and
they seemed fairly mystified. Also, they indicated they would want
nothing to do with insuring it while it was in the water....

Just got my Celina Panoramic Photo yesterday. I'll have to remember
to get in the front row next time.....:)

Thanks!

A European Ford colour, Ford "Rosso Red" is Very close to original Amphicar red
- it may be available over there. I've also updated the page showing the
original colours and paint codes here: http://www.amphicars.com/actcolor.htm

I might be starting a debate amongst the members of this group, but
I have four classics insured with Hagerty Insurance and have heard
good experiences overall about them. Make sure you ask for the
additional "Marine rider" to cover your Amphicar while boating.

Good luck.

I use Hagerty Collector Car and Boat Insurance (800-922-4050), and I know
some of the others in the club use Hagerty as well.

The rate seems fairly reasonable, but currently my vehicle is not running and
in storage so the rate would not be accurate. I also need to increase the
value of this vehicle, because it is currently too low. Your insurance rate
will depend on the value you assign to each vehicle.

I would also like to know what others are paying as our cars are similar
except for the value we assign.

Anyone care to post what their insurance rate is for the Amphi.

Thanks,

Cruiserdog

David,

I don't believe any paint chips exist for the Amphi colors to get an idea how
close other colors would come to the original.

Does anyone know what color comes close to the original Lagoon Blue? I am
currently trying to find a blue for my Amphi, and there are a couple of Ford
blue colors that come pretty close.

I asked Tom Jones at Celina, but he said his color is Maaco Blue (MAACO
Collision Repair & Auto Painting).

Hi,

I have 6 cars. Two of them are Amphicars. All of the cars are
insured by State Farm insurance. They are reasonably priced and
don't care about the fact that they go in water. I even have "stated
value" coverage on my Amphi's and the coverage is still quite cheap.

When I renewed my policies in April with Hagerty, they charged me $97 for the
auto coverage and an additional $40 for the marine policy. I declared a value of
$10k for my Amphi, but I will raise the value as I approach the time when it
becomes drivable.

Actually...The Club Archives DOES have a complete paint chip set of the four
commonly standard colors from a old dealership packet donated by a well-wisher.
They've seen harldly a photon's worth of light since 1967. Ideas?

The C-I-L (Canadian Industries Limited) Color Advisory Service book lists
the blue code as
2329-31755. Possibly some of our Canadian owners can shed some light on
these numbers. CILUX was or still is a canadian automotive paint producer.
