1961 Chevrolet Corphibian
“Rare” does not do this Corphibian justice.
By Tom Burkart

Never will anyone you encounter on water or land know what they are seeing, nor are they likely to see it again!

The Corphibian was the single prototype comissioned by General Motors, based on the Corvair 95 Rampside Pickup truck production model. Along with the Corvair Greenbriar van, these two rounded out a now very expansive family of rear-engined, air-cooled models from GM.

 

 
These were designed largely in response to the booming success of the very-cheap VW Beetle, introduced to the US officially in the mid 1950s but well-known in engineering circles from WWII and before.

The Corphibian also responded to the competitive threat from the Amphicar, launched in 1960 as a land/sea hybrid vehicle right out of Popular Science future preview issues.

The Corphibian for sale here is the original specimen, with a shockingly low 157 total land miles since new. The full fiberglass hull is quite special to see — decades before Top Gear would attempt (twice) their aquatic adventures — with great comic results.

Why an water-going version of the Corvair Rampside pickup truck?  The air-cooled engine was well suited to natural ambiant cooling, and its mid-mounted location meant the vehicle — theoretically — would be stable in the water.

Steering the Corphibian is possible from the driver’s seat or with a rudder control from the outer bed of the truck.

"Rare" may not do it "justice" and neither does "fugly". ;D
