bikertillidie I used to go to school in one such landy ... If you are free someday, let's meetup in Pune. 26th September 2014
chanu Yeh!! lovely amby my friend, honestly I am not so keen on Ambys' but this model somhow is very attractive. I am looking for one of this kind & I am planning to paint it in oxford blue with chrome bumbers. Congratulations this car is lucky to be with you. 3rd November 2009
karlosdeville I could only source Landmaster guards, but not the Ambassador units. If you can source me taillights nothing like it. Tyres came with the car brand new, 200 kms. I dont have the heart to change them yet, Ill do it when I repaint. 25th November 2008
anjan_c2007 Karl is'nt that a 1489 cc BMC OHV engine?
Lovely car and very original looking. The tail lamp covers and the bumpers in original form will alongwith white wall tyres will add to its classic looks.

karlosdeville Beta Rags, back in the day it was Hindusthan. Would you like me to show you literature? 10th February 2008
iraghava Beta Karloose, it's spelt "Hindustan" not "Hindusthan"!! 9th February 2008
