Spotted these Mark 3s within 10 ft of each other. One looked totally period, while the other was more 'bling' with alloy wheels and the kind.

This politician from Tamil Nadu drives the same old Ambassador , his father used when it comes to filing nomination papers for the Assembly elections. His father was politically a strongman of the area and this car Mr MRK Paneer Selvam believes, brings in Lady Luck to him too:

Please compare these dashboards. The Morris Oxford Series III has the option of a wind shield washer. The heater these came with have the demister and temperature controls below the clock.

They both have temperature gauges unlike their HM counterparts, which have only a red warning light.

Pictured, a neat Mark 2; MEO 6061.

Apologies for the bad pics of a good car! A recent OS update left me all confused with the cam settings on my phone. And, by the time I figured it out, the car was long gone.
