I was watching "The car and bike show" on NDTV yesterday, where they interviewed Tim Nicholson and Joanne Bowlt, 2 graduates from the Oxford University who have taken up the challenge to drive their 1954 Morris Oxford (which they claim inspired the design of the Amby) from Oxford England to Oxford in New Zealand, as a fund rasing campaign for the British Red Cross. T

They are in India now and will be here for a period of almost a month, travelling across the country.

Thsi i think is the 1954-55 Morris Oxford

You can read more about them and their quest, on this site

Hey Shantanu, the Amby is a direct desendent of the Oxford.i think this model was originally sold here as well in the early years, before it was upgraded to what we use now. I've seen quite a few of these old Amby's around...many in Parsi colonies!
