Will it float?

Recommended Posts

From what I know of that car it was not amphibious but one of the styling fads of the time. There are a few examples of other cars that have boat-like features designed into them. This was long before anyone had been completely successful in designing a truely amphibious car so they opted for looking the part instead. :)

Nautical styling theme was popular at the time, this one seems to have gone to the extreme!

Looks like a novelty or advertising gimmick. Anhaueser Busch had several nautical theme cars in the late twenties - early thirties, similar to this one but larger.
