The 1966 Amphicar 770 is a great, stylish car and an amphibious vehicle which you won’t be embarrassed to drive.
If you are interested in the subject, then you must have already seen a lot of amphibious vehicles. But let’s face it, they are not the best to look at.
Because of their very specific construction needs, the design is often overlooked and makes way for clever engineering.
But if you look back into the past, there was an amphibious vehicle, which truly stands out on this field.
It was the Amphicar – the first amphibious vehicle sold to the public, which debuted in 1961. This specific one is from 1966 and was immaculately restored to make the car showroom ready and even got a few prizes for its restoration.
The list of newly installed equipment goes on and on and includes a new interior, new top, new fuel lines and the detailing of the engine.
This car has a huge photographic documentation of this restoration so you can see how it became what it is now.
The Amphicar doesn’t have the most advanced design and technically modern vehicles are better.
Controlling the Amphicar is very manual and requires some exercise, but as it’s a classic, it gives the car a bit more soul.
The Amphicar might not be the quickest, most comfortable or most advanced vehicle you can buy. But it is just gorgeous, filled with history and heart.
It will be perfect for any collection, exhibition or some occasional slower rides around the city or a local lake. However, if you decide to utilize it, be prepared to fall in love with
