In 1962, n American auto manufacture joined up with a German manufacture to produce the first factory built, ublic dual-purpose vehicle for land and water use.The company was Amphicar and the Model 770 was born. It was a street legal convertible, nd a water ready boat all in one!Manufactured in small quantities each year from 1961 through 1965, nly 3,878 were said to have been when manufacturing stopped.Late production examples were titled in the year they were first sold & registered, o finding 1966-1968 examples can be common.

This example comes with only 146 miles and has been beautifully maintained.
Notice the ridge along the body lower edge. This was a factory made ridge that gave the car a little more stability in the water. If you look closely at some restorations you won't see this . That's do to the fact that most of these Amphicars rusted along the bottom edge and when restored this was very difficult to recreated. This is an original body that is in excellent condition.
There were approximately 3000 Amphicars produced in Germany in the 1960s, nd it is believed there are only about 500 still remaining worldwide.
