 Never heard of the Eagle amphibious ATV. There might be a review of this in the August 1970 issue of Mechanix Illustrated.

“This is a very rare amphibious ATV. They competed for the military contract against Coot. Coot eventually won the contract so eagle went by the wayside. I have restored about 90% of this and have put in a well running Vanguard. It needs some work still to be completely finished but I have lost Interest in being the one to finish it. It would be cool to finish it and use it as a river rig or take it to the sand pits and you should be able to just drive out on the water with it, that was always my goal. One sold on eBay a few years ago it was completely restored for 7500. I have not seen one for sale since then, I see coots on there all the time but they’re much more common. Make me an offer or I’m open to trades. Motorcycles, four-door with a long box or anything that I can take to the lake. Let me know what you got.”

    There was no competition between Eagle and Coot for anything! Coot in fact became Eagle in 1985. The entire military contract claim is BS!

    Thanks for the note. This certainly wouldn’t be the first time I’ve seen bad history within an ad. We run into this all the time in the vintage Jeep market. I know nothing of Eagle or Coots and don’t know their history.
