Strange Amphibious Truck was Hidden for 50 years

Created by GM engineers Richard E. Hulten and Roger D. Holm, the Corphibian is a one-of-a-kind amphibious vehicle that is often overlooked in favor of the Amphicar.

In this video you can see the maiden voyage of this 1961 Chevrolet Corphibian. If you’ve got enough money, this beauty is coming up for auction. Based on a Corvan body, the Corphibian also features a pair of propellers behind the rear wheel base along with a pair of rudders. Hulten and Holm put this video together while testing the vehicle before pitching the idea to GM. Unfortunately GM passed on the unique vehicle, but Hulten refused to send her to the scrap yard. She stayed under lock and key for more than 30 years before it was sold to its second owner.

This unique piece of Americana has a mere 157 miles on the odometer and is up for grabs between January 15 and 24th, 2016 at the Mecum auction in Kissimmee, Florida.
