When the news of Hindustan Motors selling its Ambassador brand to France-based automaker Peugeot SA came out earlier this year, nostalgia kicked in for a lot of people across the country.
Recently, we bumped into a whole range of Hindustan Motors that has run on the Indian roads in the past. Take a look at these vintage beauties, starting from the first-ever Hindustan four-wheeler in India.
You’ll find a lot of people who own the Ambassador, and still prefer to keep it for old time sakes.
Hindustan Ambassador Mark-1 is the first Hindustan Motors car to be built in India.
Hindustan Motors (HM) is a Kolkata-based automobile maker, which introduced the Ambassador in 1954 as the Hindustan Landmaster.
This iconic car continues to serve the people of Kolkata as the popular 'yellow and black taxi’.
Ambassador has been awarded the strongest taxi in the world by BBC’s Top Gear show, and you can’t question this four-wheeler for its sheer durability.
