1965 Amphicar Model 770

1965 Amphicar Model 770 – Is it a boat?  Is it a car?  It’s both… it’s the Amphicar!

It is Sunday, a good museum day.  In connection with our recent outing with OJOA – the Ontario Jaguar Owners Association – we visited the Canadian Automotive Museum in Oshawa, Ontario.  While not particularly impressive from the outside, it definitely punches above its weight.  We wished we had more time to explore and read about the prodigious exhibits, but there were Jaguars to see that day.  Here is a taste of what we saw.  When in Oshawa or its surrounding area, we do recommend a visit.

Pretty cool stuff. I have to go with 1908 McLaughlin . I’ve never seen one in person. Would you believe I grew up just on the oshawa outskirts, worked at GM’s old stamping plant and the assembly plant and still haven’t set foot in that museum ! Thanks for the tour

The 770 was more like a 660 as it was closer to 6 knots and 60 mph. Another interesting thing was many had triumph engines which was different for a German car.

That museum has improved greatly over the last 20 or so years. It was getting quite run down but I can see it is much brighter and cleaner since the last time I was there. Some vigorous fund raising must have played a part.
They really have some exceptional automobiles in there!
It was a “coin toss” at first for my 1st choice… the 3 litre Bentley or the 1750 Alfa Romeo.
Just before tossing the coin, my heart demanded…. Alfa Romeo! 🙂
