Is that your ampicar in yor pic? Any more pics/story?
I haven't received the mirror yet but it was $25.00, I know it'll be a long time before I find a cheap NOS one for my Fury. And yes that's my Amphicar, I've had it for about 2 years. I actually have another one that's in about the same condition as the Titanic too.
And that's the world famous Hudson river that we were pulling into and tooling around in those pics.

Here's a little bit on it from when it was invited to a Concours show in CT last year.I think I came the furthest and it was the only car in the Concours part of the show that drove there (and the only one that was driven into a lake a week earlier).

What'77 Royal? Looks like a '74 to me. I can't believe how many bolts are in the nose of this car! I had some alignment issues at the door, nothing a 2x4 and a 5LB hammer couldn't fix, but man these things do not fit together well. Still have the right side to go! Oh and I love the bolt behind the track thingy for the slider that goes up from under the fender, that was fun to find.
Did you have to remove the hood to swap the fender?
You have too. The hood brackets are bolted on with the fenders in the back corner. Also the hood torsion bar slider supports are bolted onto the fenders as well. It is a pain in the ass getting everything lined back up!

Good luck with lining everything up Adam. It sucks dont it!! After instaling my new fenders, I could never get the back corner of the hood on the passenger side to line back up properly.. It still sits too high for my liking.
I love the amphicar by the way!! Thanks for sharing! If I'm ever up your way I'd love a ride!! Haha

It's getting there, I still don't have a front bumper but I acquired a gas door and the moldings above the tail lights from a regular Monaco. Here is today's progress. I also figured out how to shorten the front bumper shocks since I may need to run the '77 bumper for a while.
