Ok, part of this is obvious, but not the whole story. And it has a name. Emblems removed. Photo from Mike W.

Definitely 1961 Corphibian.Owned by Wally Wheeler. This pic looks like it was taken at the GM Tech Center. There was one in the GM Historical Collection at one time,they got rid of quite a few pieces,wonder if this one came from there?

Bill has it, this is believed to be the one and only Corphibian. Here is some info from the Amphiclopedia site that Biill sent:

Corphibian (1961) prototype

It was build by Hulten-Holm & Co on the basis of the Corvair 95 Load side truck with a 6 cylinder petrol engine.
The first owner Richard Hulten had it for 30 years and drove it 126 miles.

It is perfect original, except it has been repainted.

On the rear at the end of the loading bay there is a diving platform that also houses the swim parts

This Amphib has 2 propellers and 2 rudders mounted at the rear.
Not know is if there was more than one prototype build.

Thanks to Mike W and Amphiclodedia for the photos.
