Classic Car Overview

1,447cc Inline 4-Cylinder Engine - 4-Speed Manual Transmission - Original Spare, Jack, and Tool Kit - Twin Bilge Pumps - Finished in White - Red Interior Does this car even need an introduction? Well if you dont know, this is an Amphicar 770. Yes, its exactly what is sounds like, this is an amphibious car. The name 770 comes from its speed: 7mph on the water and 70mph on land. Power comes from the peppy 1,447cc inline 4-cylinder engine mated to a 4-speed manual transmission driving the rear wheels. At the flip of a switch the dual rear props can be engaged and have forward and reverse gears. Both the rear wheels and props can be used at the same time during landings. Because of its amphibious nature, the 770 comes equipped with dual bilge pumps and extra seals for all compartments to keep water out. It will certainly bring lots of attention both on land and especially in the water. The interior is covered in bold red and white vinyl with rubber floor mats for easy clean up incase of any water intrusion. Perhaps the best Amphicar story comes by way of President Lyndon B. Johnson, who kept his Amphicar at his ranch in Texas and would gives tours to advisors and friends. Often, President Johnson would act as if the brakes had malfunctioned as he barreled the car towards a small lake, his guests would begin to panic until they realized they were still dry and car had leveled out on the water. Its obvious President Johnson loved his Amphicar and had many fun years with it, and now you have the opportunity to do the same in this charming little white 770.
