1964 Amphicar Land or Sea

$80,000

“7 Knots 70 MPH” Sea & Land

This 1964 Amphicar Model 770 is an amphibious vehicle that reportedly received a refurbishment under previous ownership. Finished in white with a black soft top over a red and white vinyl interior, the car is powered by a 1,147cc Triumph Herald inline-four paired with a four-speed manual transmission.

The Amphicar’s 770 model name refers to the vehicle’s theoretical top speeds of seven-knots in the water and 70-mph on land. This example is said to have been repainted white under previous ownership and is fitted with a replacement black soft top. Additional features include a red tonneau cover and chrome side moldings, bumpers, navigation lights, and a marine-style horn.

Red-painted 13” steel wheels wear chrome Amphicar-branded hubcaps and are wrapped in BFGoodrich Silvertown Radial whitewall tires sized 185/80. The front wheels function as rudders while the vehicle is in the water, while stopping power on land is provided by drums at all four corners.

The cabin features two rows of bench seats trimmed in red and white vinyl with matching door panels and black rubber-lined floors. Clear protective coverings have been applied to the front seat bottoms and rear bench, and the car features an umbrella holder along with roll-down side and pop-out wing windows.

A white two-spoke steering wheel fronts a body-colored dash that houses knobs for vehicle functions along with a suite of MotoMeter instrumentation that includes an analog clock, a 90-mph speedometer, and a combination gauge for fuel level and coolant temperature. The five-digit odometer shows just under 7k miles,Total mileage is unknown.

The rear-mounted 1,147cc inline-four was shared with the Triumph Herald and was factory-rated at 43 horsepower and 61 lb-ft of torque. A rebuild was reportedly carried out under previous ownership.

Power is sent to either the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission or to the dual propellers using a separate gearbox mounted to the end of the main unit.

This Amphicar is truly a must see!
