Is it just me who is seeing the bonnets way longer than the Indian Ambys. Do these have a larger capacity engines?

This is the Morris Isis. It came with a 2.6 Liter 6 cylinder engine.

In the hierarchy as per the company slotting the Cowley was an economy model, then came the Oxford and then the Issis with a straight six engine.This is why our Club is known Morris Cowley, Oxford and Issis Owner's Club.
Our Landys and Ambys were based on the Oxford with the OE heater and a few other goodies not made available here.

This is a pic of my Amby, daily use car till May 2008. Now redone will be back to daily use in the next few days.
Highly modified with tinted glasses, A/c to be used for short runs upto 20Km, indicator lights, rear glass replaced with a front glass for panorama view, rear view mirror from Contessa, thats about it.

Cheers harit

Harit did'nt know you are an Amby lover/owner.That is an original shade again parrot green I believe which was popular in the late 1970's in the Mark 3 and later Mark 4 in the first few lots.

Stanher thanks again. Thats an original parrot green shade I believe, the Landy used to come in. Great looking -only if it could have been a few seconds faster to be captured by the camera in its entirety.

Oh great Karl. This car bears a Nagpur number but I am seeing it for the first time. Maybe a 1961 model as MHN 1358 was a 1962 Super Select.

This lovely original car has had only 2 previous long term owners, the first of which was a top ranking bureaucrat from Jaipur. The car was offered to me for a pittance a few years ago, but alas I didnt even have a pittance to spare. One shoddy overcoat later the car is advertised for 85k with work still to be done.

This dieselised car was for sale some time back, it might still be there.

Attachment 35106

This neat car recently underwent a garish colour change, though executed superbly. Note the dent in the running board still visible after repaint!

The movie starred Jackie Shroff, Arbaz Khan and Paresh Rawal too I think. Forget the name. Much of it was shot in Pune.

Have been seeing this car parked around the same vicinity at Colaba for a few days now. It has a lot of Morris Oxford logos on it, an overdose of badging i suppose but on the whole the car seems to be well cared for and in good shape. Owing to the fact that she is not parked in the same spot, i can safely hazard a guess that she would be in regular use.

Since it was a sunny day and the reflection of the sun was right on the windows, i couldn't manage a pic of the interior. Most of the original switches were missing but the dash was complete. Also missing was the bakelite knob bezel around the ignition key which acted as a light switch. Have not seen those for a while on cars now.

The Landy does not have the light switch like this. its only the early amby's which do.
