Nice patina! If it gets new tyres and mechanically sorted out, it can be driven like those rat rod beetles!

Dear BHPians
Through a close friend of mine, i got to know that there is an Ambassador nova ( 1990s model) petrol. We did have an amby mark 4 in 90s, thinking of going for it (yet to see it) without even seeing it as the offer is some where around Rs 30K. Thinking to keep it & get into partial restorations on a later date as it is in good running condition.
I did not get complete picture of Amby Nova though there were couple of posts. Hope it will have similar outlook like Mark IV and not too modified version of later ambys.

Looking for some suggestions & opinions from Amby lovers. I will try to post the pictures by Sunday.

Place is Mysore.

Thanks.

How much the ambassador 5.90 - 15 tyres (picture attached) would cost, is it available in the market.

Apparently MRF makes it on special order. Just check with their communications department, not sure though. You could talk to JayD on this forum from Cochin. Hes a master of Ambassadors.

The Ambassador surely deserves to be the first Indian car to be commemorated through a postal stamp by India Post. Good or bad, it has been serving India and Indians since 1958 till 2014 and even later on till date, with whatever population of the car that still remains roadworthy. The critics may say so many things about it, but it surely deserves this honour over any other car.

Hence with such feelings I have posted in change.org for signatures from enthusiasts, to be passed on to India Post and the Ministry of Communication, Govt of India, for further necessary action.

Do please click on this link and sign (the red icon)
