The International Amphicar Owners Club (IAOC) is a group of Amphicar owners and like-minded enthusiasts who enjoy this truly unique vehicle. Being the only civilian mass produced amphibious vehicle (if you think approximately 3,900 vehicles is massed produced) in the world’ it provides owners with a unique driving and boating experience. Even though it wasn’t a great car or a great boat it is one of a kind.
The IAOC has been an ongoing source of history, technical support and vehicle information to members and the general public. Through the club’s website and newsletters, we hope to share the spirit of the Amphicar and make ownership an exciting adventure. Our regional and national Swim-ins, offer members the opportunity to share their cars, meets other owners, discuss technical and restoration issues and most importantly, create lifelong friendships.
The owners of an Amphicar are a truly unique breed unlike any other car collectors. We don’t talk about how much horsepower we have or admire all the chrome on the car. We talk about swimming with our cars and the fun experiences we have had when we take our cars into the water. We embrace the unique aspects of our half car/half boat. We enjoy sharing our cars by raising money for local charities while providing the public with a once in a lifetime experience in going for a ride in the car that floats.
