  • Description

    THE FIGHT AGAINST CRIME ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD IS NO LONGER THE SPHERE OF THE TRENCH-COATED DETECTIVE WITH THE SLICK MIND - BUT THE SUM TOTAL OF HUMAN INGENUITY AND SCIENTIFIC ACHIEVEMENT.

    A NEW WEAPON THAT'S COME INTO THE HANDS OF HAMBURG POLICE IS A PAIR OF AMPHIBIOUS CARS THAT WILL ENABLE THE CITY'S LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY TO EXTEND THE POLICING OF THE BUSTLING PORT.

    THE AMPHIBIOUS CAR IS A SLEEK LOOKING CONVERTIBLE THAT TO ALL OUTWARD APPEARANCES LOOKS LIKE ANY OTHER CAR EXCEPT FOR THE TWO TINY PROPELLORS UNDER THE CHASSIS.

    IT HAS A FULLY BUOYANT 14-FOOT CHASSIS WITH SELF-SEALING DOORS AND ALL EXPOSED PARTS HAVE BEEN SPECIALLY TREATED AGAINST CORROSION. A REAR-MOUNTED ENGINE GIVES A TOP SPEED OF 80 M. P. H. (128 KMH) ON LAND AND ABOUT 8 M. P. H. (12 KMH) THROUGH THE WATER.

    THERE'S A STANDARD FOUR-GEAR TRANSMISSION FOR LAND DRIVING AND A SPECIAL GEAR-BOX FOR THE MARINE DRIVE WITH ONE FORWARD AND ONE REVERSE GEAR.

    ONE ERASON GIVEN BY THE HAMBURG POLICE FOR THE PURCHASE OF THE CARS IS THAT THEY'LL HELP WITH RESCUE AND RELIEF WORK SHOULD HAMBURG EVER AGAIN BE DEVASTATED BY FLOODS WHICH RAVAGED THE CITY TWO YEARS AGO.
