The Amphicar made its debut in 1961 at the New York Auto Show. It had been developed over a period of 15 years at a cost of $25 million. It was the first fully amphibious vehicles to be sold to the public.

To enter the water, the watertight seals on the doors were locked into place, the bilge plug was installed, and the front luggage lid was locked. A lever directed the engine's power to dual rear propellers. The front wheels were used to steer the watercraft and served as primitive rudders. Spinning the propellers in reverse served as a brake.

This particular example was owned as early as 1972 by Sidney Armistead of Alaska, who retained ownership of it until 2004. It passed to another Alaskan owner, then, shortly thereafter, to Eugene Francavilla of Jupiter, Florida. In Mr. Francavilla's ownership, the Amphicar was given a restoration and finished in the factory color of Lagoon Blue. After the work was completed, it was judged Most Unique at the Boca Raton Concours d'Elegance in 2009 and won Best Amphicar at the Classic Boat Show in Mount Dora, Florida.

Recently, this Amphicar has been given a new top and interior, along with new fuel lines, and the engine compartment has been detailed.
