Congratulations to the Bangalore Boys on a lovely car. I particularly love the colour - I am assuming the original shade?

Start stocking up on spares - after everyone reads this expect prices to start soaring

Did you manage to also get the original manual, delivery note etc? And what was the original registration number? All the best and let us know for any assistance.

Is it the original 1.4 liter petrol engine, Could you post a video file may be a 2 min video, with bonnet open and cranking ?

Are you planning to refurbish your new acquisition given its age or planning to use it sparingly in as-is condition ?
The chrome on the car doesn't look like new and I also don't think the original would have lasted this long!

For now the car will stay as it is with just tyre upgrade and it will be used as a daily runner.

Will post the video soon, meanwhile here is a pic of the 1.5 L BMC engine at night with engine bay lights on.

Thanks Karl!!

As per the owner, yes, it's the original bottle green color.

Not started with collecting the spares yet. From FIATs to Amby, lots to learn!

The current owner says he did not get the original docs and manual from the first owner who had the car from 1974 to 1981. :(

Amby and it's companions for life.

You can see a scan of the owner's manual here. I do have a parts catalogue somewhere, when I find it will make you a scan. Could you find the original registration number?
