Renjit, more pics of the cars please. I wonder how you have parked the cars side by side! I don't see any space for opening the doors ?

Thanks,
Jose.

The central clock was gone by early 1965 but the two Smiths meters (speedo and the tempreture, fuel , full beam lights, temp ) shared company with a blank space sans the clock. During late 1965 the dash was changed with a desi Yenkay made smaller speedo, three warning lamps (green, yellow and red)in a round chrome console at the centre(remember that the Smiths meters housed these lamps within) and three small separate Yenkay meters at the left part of the dash signifying tempreture, fuel and amps.
During the period hen the Yenkay meters were introduced, there were Autometer meters were also OE. They were Smiths look alikes, both the speedo and the comby but no clocks. Later on Autometer introduced the Yenkay look alikes the difference being the needles which had a small tail also.

I have seen some Amby Smiths Mark 1 speedometers that count in MPH and some that do so in Kmph. Is there a known definitive date / year when this switch was made?

Do you know where I can get the fender trims - point no 6 in your photographs. I need all 4 of them. I am restoring a Mark II 1975 Ambassador and need several small body bits. I also need the Bonnet Centre Insignia, Monograms, Mark II monograms from the side fenders, the OE tail lamps etc.
