Dear Karlosdeville,

Can you please scan and post the Ambassador Mark 4 Owners' Manual. I have a 1986 Model Mark 4 and planning for a restoration soon, probably after the monsoons.

Buddy, I know its a tedious time taking task to scan the pages,and upload. But couldn't resist myself from requesting for the thing, that I have been fervently searching for quite some time.

Anyone else who may be having a soft copy of the Mark 4 manual.. kindly inform.
Will PM my email address accordingly.

Thanks & regards,
Probhat

I have been looking for it all evening, and as usual I cannot find it. Rest assured once I do, I will make a copy.

"4 new speed reads for the true automobile aficionado"
Economic Times Panache 23-07-2015
(Book Title cover photos may be viewed in the PDF file attached) 

If you're starting your own collection of car books, look beyond Amazon.com

If you really want to know what's going on in someone's head, an analysis of their intellectual diet is the best place to start. For car lovers, this can be a minefield. Auto-themed books for aficionados run the gamut from ultra-cheese and kitsch ( Cars of the Fascinating '40s! , Dogs in Cars, Car Crashes and Other Sad Stories) to boring rundowns on engine variants and pamphlets that are straight brandboosting propaganda. Here are a few new ones to set you on the right path.

"The Pininfarina Book"

A total look at the seminal designs from the legendary Italian design firm. Accompanied by spectacular concept drawings and photographs of Pininfarina's best projects for Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, and Maserati, among others.

"The Impossible Collection of Motorcycles"

Everything is here. The singular BMW R7, the 1948 Vincent Series R apide on which Rollie Free shattered the land speed record in nothing but a bathing suit.T he iconic 19 6 9 Easy Rider bike that Peter Fonda made famous. And the 1973 HarleyDavidson XR750, Evel Knievel's favorite bike. Consider this the ultimate un fettered celebration of motorcycle culture and design, a deluxe volume must-have for every motorbike lover and the newest addition to Assouline's Impossible Collections series.

"Mille Miglia, 1,000 Miles of Passion"

The exclusive look at this legendary road race and its A-list drivers. Shot during the 2014 race, this account gets up-close and personal, as you'd never get in real life, thanks to photographs by René Staud. The result is an enthralling depiction of cars, landscapes, and celebrity drivers.

"Vintage Cars"

Ken Gross, former executive director of the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles and a Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance judge for 25 years, wrote this tribute to the great auto mobiles of the past and the undeniable allure they retain today. The real beauty here is the exquisite photography by r enow ne d pho tographer Laziz Hamani. Read it and grasp the revolutionary novelty of the first wheeled machines in history.

Here is the owner's manual from my dad's old Yezdi. It is dated 1975, and covers both the Yezdi Model B as well as the Jawa 353. Were they being sold side by side at the time?

Thanks a ton Karl...This HM Mark 4 Operations Manual will surely provide a lot of matter to me in my upcoming plans to restore my Mark 4 ( WNF - 9391), post the monsoons.

Also will come back to the appropriate Ambassador & Landmaster forum to seek your opinions and suggestions during the restoration process.

Regards,
Probhat

A couple of Royal Enfield parts catalogues, including a rare one for the Fantabulus scooter - hopefully will be helpful whenever I get down to restoring mine.

Got my hands on this neat book yesterday, "The Car Owner's Handbook" by Boman Chotia, printed in 1965. Some time back I also got another publication by the same author on traffic laws for the Motorist.
