James:-I can't help you much but I bought an Amphicat new in 1968 from Beehoo Engineering
in Streetsville Ontario Canada (near Toronto).
It had a one speed tranny ,(later I saw a 2 speed).
and a 17 H.P. 2stroke (sachs I think). It looked a lot like your picture but yours is missing the decal, on the front corner, of the cat with the snow shoes in the marsh with a backpack. My seat back was different than yours and mine was plastic. I loved the machine but destroyed it
each and every weekend. We honestly bent all six axles in one weekend. If you hit a bump hard enough too get air ,you risked snapping a motor mount whigh required removing the frame to reweld the mount.I sold the machine when Beehoo
got tired of fixing it under warranty and soon after they went out of bussiness. My chains were
open but a later model had them boxed in like the chain on some European bicycles. Good luck
