Description for Other Makes 1900

THIS IS A NO RESERVE AUCTION FOR MY 2014 Panther Water car, Yes it is a amphibious car. These vehicles are built in California and are considered "kit cars"but are completely custom from the ground up (jet driven). I wont go into the History of Watercar but I suggest you go to (Watercar dot com)to read all about them. Yes they are very pricey at $155,000.00 for a new one. Here's your chance to own one for a fraction of the cost. If you don't like attention or your picture taken don't buy it!I had a coast guard cutter pull up next to me with about 8 guys taking pics of us!. Now about mine, it was named the "Catalina Car" becauseWatercar used if for a demonstration driving it from Newport California to Catalina (about 30 miles) by water. They also showed how versatile it was by hanging it by hookson the back ofa yacht.(see pics on watercar).It is what they call a "fan car" it was the first generation of cars they built. The first generation cars were cooled by electric fans. The cars are powered by a 4.7 acura motor but because the engine sitsin the rear of the car they are difficult to cool (basically the enginesits in a bowl). Nowwhen they are in the water they are cooledlike a inboard boat with a heat exchanger and have no cooling issues at all. When I bought the car I did some modifications to the original design to help is cool better while on land. I removed the original small radiator and added a larger 4 core radiato, I also added aL88 style scoop with another 15 inch fan to the rear deck lid tohelp drawhot air out. These modificationshelped a lot but I think it would still heat up if driven for long periods or on the highway. (I have no problem driving it around the neighborhood and to the boat ramp etc..) The engine in these cars are 2007-09 4.7, I decided to look around for a spare before they got too hard to find, I located a low mileage 09 complete motor for 2k that I purchased that will go with the car. Its still onthe pallet it came on. I also have a spare deck lid and a hydraulic pump for the wheel hydraulics . Watercar is a excellent company and have beenvery helpful with any questions I havehad. If you are truly looking for a unique toy this is the one! It is geared pretty tall and runs about 50-55 on land and about 45 mph on the water, it has aGPS speedo .These cars areboth a car and boat and the buyer should be mechanically inclined to trouble shootwhen problems occur, I learned a lot about it just tinkering with it. If you are serious about buying it PLEASEgive me a call before you bid, if you want general info about them go to watercar's website. If you have a iPhone id be happy to facetime with you and show you the car.The car is in very good condition but is used and had some pits, nicks and chips. Please Sorry no trades, I just ordered a new Dodge Demon and am selling several of my cars. I have never seen another usedPanther for sale so here's your chance to own one for an affordable price!. I have a video of mine in the water that I can text you. Check out my feedback as a sellerwith carsI have sold,. I want you to be happy with your purchase. Now the disclaime, like any other used car it is sold "as-is" with no warranty. a nonrefundable deposit of $2000 is due within 24 hrsso please be serious.Feel free to call me at 734-845-6564 anytime 9a-10p eastern time.
