1964 Amphicar 770
|Model History||Auction sales research||Specifications||Body styles and Chassis Data|
At most, there were 800 examples of the Amphicar produced with the majority being powered by a 1147cc Triumph Herald engine.
This example shown is a well restored and maintained vehicle. It has traveled less than 500 miles since new. The car was offered for sale with an accompanying light pole, four life jackets, owner's manual, and is registered and fully license watercraft for the rest of the 2007 season.
This 1964 Amphicar Convertible was offered for sale at the 2007 RM Auctions held in Meadow Brook where it was estimated to sell between $50,000 - $60,000. The car was offered without a reserve. It is powered by a 70 cubic-inch four-cylinder engine that is capable of producing nearly 45 horsepower. There is a four-speed manual gearbox and disc brakes in the front. Drum brakes can be found in the rear.
The estimated value proved to be very accurate, as the car was sold for a high bid of $60,500. Happy motoring, wherever that might be.
