amphibious vehicle is almost always associated with rugged, off-road vehicles and never had or will ever have a romantic relationship with road cars, much less a Volvo 240 Wagon, well, that’s until now. a New Yorker by the name of Theon Parseghian, who apparently has this undying love for tinkering with cars in a brutal and fun manner (such as this one here), decided that he should made an amphibious vehicle and the ride of choice is the aforementioned, sweet Volvo 240 Wagon. according to Jalopnik, Theon had a ’85 Brat engine bolted to where the rear seats used to and hooked it up to a propeller for pushing the vehicle through the water. obviously, there were a lot more done to the vehicle to make it water-worthy, which we don’t have a whole lot details.
from what we can see, Theon had the car completely sealed off, including the doors and the fenders, and had a roof cut out for access, which kind of turn the 240 Wagon into a Volvo boat. he also has a bow up at the nose to enable the vehicle to forge water more effectively. and oh, it looks like the vehicle is also fitted with adjustable suspension too. pretty awesome. a slammed amphibious is like what dreams are made of. seriously. judging from the video posted by Theon, it looks like Amphibious Volvo 240 Wagon, which he dubbed Evolvo, is a huge success.
p.s. little information is available about the Evolvo, but we think it is not using propeller. it looks like it has a jet pump impeller, like those found on jet skis. what do you think?
