Hi there, here's a few pics of our bus for your gas guzzlers page, she's a 1965
split imported from Austria some years ago, she was in a pretty bad way so had a
full restoration about 7-8 years ago including a lot of suspension work to get
her to sit nice and low! She's still earning her keep as the fudge bus as seen
in the first 2 pics!

Rockin Robin is a
Commer campervan, a piece of British history. There are not many like him that

Spec as follows.
1962 Amphicar 770, registered in ‘67. Believed to be less than 20 rhd models left in existence of which there are about 6 in the UK – not all of them swimmable.
1147cc Triumph Herald Motor and the rest of the car is Bespoke to Amphicar.
Built in Berlin, Germany from 1962 to 1967 and cost $5m to design in the late 50’s. It cost more than an E Type Jaguar when it went on sale. Of the 5000 cars that the factory geared up to produce, only about 3000 were ever made – of which less than 100 were rhd, and nearly all went to America.
This car has been across the channel on several occasions and also across to the Isle of White a couple of times. They are quite good swimmers!
