And as you say, if the tail fins and back lights are of the Ambassador, the chaps must have tried to give a newer look to a Landmaster with so many Ambassador parts. Its surely a Landy-Amby hybrid! Yes with a suitcase containing Rs two lakhs that guy who owns it can jump off a bridge. The Olympics are due soon. maybe he wins a diving medal!!
I am just speculating here...it strikes me that there's so much of this car that suggests it's a Landmaster. The main thing that suggests it's an Amby is the boot shape. Supposing at some point, the car's rear-end was damaged in an accident. Let's say the bootlid and rear fenders were too damaged for bodywork. You think maybe they got Amby bootlid and rear fenders, and fitted them? Experts...can you comment?

its definitely a hybrid, that has been established. Which was the original car is in question, which should be answered by the regn number. Im not too familiar with the MYB series, but my guess is it should date to the mid 50s, making it a Landmaster.

Maybe Sidman, but that guy has also fitted the aluminium, front fender top strips of the Ambassador- you'll notice two of these perched atop the fender. But he has not got fitted Amby headlight sealbeam covers which had shades on their top portions till the advent of the Mark 3. The bootlid of an Amby fit the Landmaster- the number plate lights are also the same for the Landy and the Amby Mark 1 and II.

True! Also I'm sure that car isnt a '57 by any means!! That body shape came only in the late 40s or at the most early 50s only! Maybe he wants to reduce its age by 10 or so years for the sake of selling??

I'm sure he wants 4.5 lakhs for it.
Must have got the zeros wrong

If he really wants 45 lacs, I want some of what he's smoking

@el
I think many people would be interested (including me), all depends on how much the owner asking.....and the condition of the car.
Please get the details and photo.
