[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]We are currently in talks with the current owner of a very rare find, a 1965 Amphicar.

Mr Sinclair has owned the car for many years and has carried out a lot of the restoration works himself:

A complete reconditioned engine, a re-bore with new pistons, new cam shaft and cam followers, head skimmed and unleaded valves and guides, crank ground ends mains, new distributor, plugs, leads and chain. The gearbox has been rebuild with all bearings and the seals replaced.  The brakes have been replaced, the shoes and all pipes have been renewed. The body has been overhauled by a professional which included £6000 worth of panels; including new bonnet, inner and outer rear wings and wheel arches (these are not like a normal car but are inside the wings and are part of the the body structure which cost many thousands to do.)  New tyres have been fitted  and she has a new hood which still needs to be fitted.

We believe the car was shipped over to the current owner from Beverly Hills Car Club and all being well should be coming to the Bridge Classic Cars workshop in the very near future.
