While many companies have tried to make amphibious vehicles, and more independent producers, no one has managed to make a vehicle that could be used every day, and that appears to be normal. Most of these vehicles are experiments that are at a bit weird on land and water, so the interest for this vehicle is really little. In 1961 appeared the Chevrolet Corphibian who had a similar story.
Based on the Corvair Rampside pickup, this unique creation comes with a fiberglass body and a slightly greater length, so the driver could enjoy on the road and the river. Mecum, the auction company that sells this vehicle describes it as a part of history.
The Corvair model was powered by an air cooled, flat-six, boxer piston engine, and this well preserved prototype keeps its mill with only 157-miles (253 km) of wear and tear in the rear, under the loadbed.
As you can see, the Corphibian is in a remarkably good condition, retaining its original automatic transmission, two propellers and, of course, the powerplant.
The interior is also in the original condition, with minimal signs of use on the steering wheel, instrument panel and floor. In fact, this car is so well preserved that it comes with the original tires and wheels.
