An owner of HM Ambassador in Madhya Pradesh has customised his sedan into a limousine. A lot of modification have been made to make this car more upmarket
Hindustan Ambassador was the longest-running car in the Indian market before it was finally discontinued owing to stringent norms and low popularity. The classic styling and the comfortable cabin has successfully kept its legacy alive for all these years. Currently, the classic sedan is still being used by some government officials, while some have decided to add one to their garage simply due to the great nostalgia it invokes. Some even modify the Amby a bit and today, we have a video of one such modified Hindustan Ambassador which has been extended and converted into a limousine.
This video is uploaded by a YouTube channel named as Retro Classics India. The customized sedan is based in Madhya Pradesh and has been modified smartly. This walkaround video shows the Hindustan Ambassador outside and inside. The Ambassador seen in this video is extended by a few meters.
If you are an Ambassador lover, then you may know that the classic sedan is based on a monocoque chassis. Modifying a vehicle with monocoque chassis can be a tricky task, but the modifier has done a perfect job. The car is painted in blacked-out colour shade, and it also features body cladding, which makes the sedan look a bit rugged.
The modified classic sedan also looks much better and modern than the regular model. The modified car even features aftermarket alloy wheels along with a new set of bumpers which make the car look more upmarket. A lot of modifications have also been done to the cabin of the car. Inside, the sedan gets red velvet upholstery, two pairs of rear captain seats facing each other, a big screen with stereo system and a DVD player. Mechanically, the modified Hindustan Ambassador remains the same. It derives power from a 1,871 cc Isuzu petrol mill that produces power and torque outputs of 75 PS and 130 Nm, respectively. The engine comes paired with a 5-speed manual transmission.
