Forbes: Personal Cars of the Presidents

Lyndon B. Johnson: Amphicar

While Lyndon Johnson (1963-1969) was probably more associated with the block-long Lincoln Continental convertible with which he traversed his ranch in Stonewall, Texas, LBJ also owned an Amphicar, which was at home in the water as was on the road. Only 3,878 of these amphibious autos were built between 1961 and 1968 and his still resides on the ranch. Johnson was said to play practical jokes on unsuspecting guests with his Amphicar by pretending to lose control of the vehicle and veering into a lake on the premises.
