Selling a 1965 Amphicar
Designed by Hanns Trippel and produced in Germany between 1961 and 1968, the Amphicar would be the world’s first mass-produced, non-military amphibious car. Offering an eye-catching design and boasting 7 knots on water and 70mph on land, the 1965 Amphicar continues to be highly collectible and sought-after by those buyers who appreciate the automobile’s uniqueness and the pleasure of ownership. Although the Amphicar is known for having modest performance both on the land and in the water, approximately 4,500 models were produced before new changes in EPA and DOT requirements in the United States forced the company to close in 1968. The United States market had been the largest for the Amphicar Company and without the ability to import Amphicar models into the U.S. the company was unable to continue production. If you’re thinking about selling a 1965 Amphicar (or an Amphicar of any model-year), the Alex Manos team would be happy to learn more about your particular model and can help you establish the car’s value in today’s market.
1965 Amphicar Seller’s Guide
The Amphicar is one of those unique classics that continue to attract attention in the market due to their rarity and uniqueness. Let’s face it, there were only 4,500 examples produced, of which approximately 700 remain in use today; the Amphicar is a special classic. Buyers, however, will be looking for the best condition example they can find within their budget due to the expense involved in restoration and the availability of parts. That being said, you can rest assured knowing that despite condition, Amphicar models are still highly sought-after. Buyers who are looking for an Amphicar for restoration will be looking for those that are as complete as possible. Is the chrome on your Amphicar complete? Have the rear fenders been repaired from known water damage? Is there extensive rust on the body? On the other hand, if you’re model is road and seaworthy, buyers will be looking for those that have the most options, the paint colors they desire and more. When is the last time your Amphicar was in the water? What is the overall condition of the body? Do you have documentation of restoration or maintenance? These are just a few of the questions you can expect from educated buyers that you should be prepared to answer when selling your 1965 Amphicar.
