Check out these aftermarket headlamps on this Ambassador. These are available for Rs. 5,000 and road legal as well.
Hindustan Ambassador can be termed as a retro car. Its roots belong to the days before we got independence. The Ambassador was on sale till 2014, which translates to a production run of over 56 years. However, a lot of them can be seen on road in pristine condition. But with increasing age, Ambassador is now taking up the place as a collector’s delight. Also, the owners are now restoring their cars to the maximum possible extent. But for most parts, Ambassador owners have to go for the aftermarket route as finding the OEM spare part is next to impossible. Also, the aftermarket route offers newer options at an affordable price. Here’s a set of aftermarket headlamps for the Ambassador, we came across.
The LED DRLs also double up as turn indicators on these headlamps.
The pair is priced at a fairly low MRP of Rs. 5,000 but it offers all the pros of a 21st century’s headlamp assembly. It comes equipped with a circular LED DRL that also doubles up as a turn indicator. The manufacturer calls it a halo ring. For the low beam and high beam, the headlamp unit uses a 4D PMMA projector lens that is capable of throwing light up to 200 meters. This projector is also circumscribed by another LED ring, which works in conjunction with the halo ring. These headlamp units are certified by the SAE (Society of Automobile Manufacturers) and DOT (Department of Transportation, USA). Therefore, they are road-legal as well.

Also, these certifications ensure that the headlamp units have been tested for operation, rusting, and failure. The headlamp assembly is made up of Aluminum metal with fins at its rear portion to dissipate heat. Talking of the power consumption, the low-beam bulb is rated at 60 Watts, while the high-beam bulb is rated at 75 Watts. Overall, these headlamp units give the Ambassador a retro-modern appeal. They do help in accentuating the overall aura of the car. It can be seen in the picture that the car’s front end looks fresher and modern with LED DRLS in place.
