The Amphicar debuted at the 1961 New York Auto Show, it was developed over a period of 15 years coming in at a cost of $25 million. Resembling a combination of 1957 Thunderbird and Glasspar ski boat, it was motivated by  a rear-mounted four-cylinder engine, borrowed from the Triumph Herald and driving the rear wheels.

About 3,878 Amphicars were built between 1961 and 1968. The majority, as planned, were exported to the United States, where they sold for $3,395, a price comparable to the Austin-Healey, to buyers that included President Lyndon Johnson. 1966-amphicar-770-1-cropped-thumb-768x512-74530 101601_Interior_Web
