Dave's Thoughts



"The Allure " of Midwest Amphicar

The enjoyment and passion of a new build.

I have done lots of back to stock restorations and the idea of a custom is just plain fun.

Mods done so far.

Enlarge rear wheel openings

Install raised lip custom quarters and rockers.

Install tow hitch

Modify steering wheel

Upgrade engine to a bored out 1300 with Weber carb and ac pump.

Hubs and drums machined to accept new cool guy rims

To do list includes:

High back custom made bucket seats

Modified dash with gauges and stereo upgrades

Electric top-(If possible)

After a few false starts the actual build started. It is amazing how much time is consumed building a car or boat. Torque Fest is a great gathering of "traditional" hot rods and customs. They did not like my rims because they are too new. I was able to sneek in via vendor camping. Then I moved into main parking.

One of the magazines was doing some photo shoots. She saw the mermaid and liked it. So they took a lot of shots with the Amphicar.

Than back home with a stop in Morrison Illinois after crossing the Mississippi.

Got The Allure painted. But like all Amphis did not like the 99 degree day.

This is a rare IMP folding boat. Made in 1971. I modified axle to accept cool guy rims and a Jimmy Buffet grill. ohhh yea
