Two old pictures of Delhi traffic.The Ambassador bumpers in the upper picture have the rubber strip appended horizontally all across. These were OE for the earliest Mark 4's from Feb 1979 till sometime in early 1981.

Hi.
Great pictures. Love them
Incidentally I wonder if you have noticed that the bus route and destination boards were on the rear of the bus. Currently it is on the side above the entrance.
