Hindustan 1957

India

Landmaster – end of prod.
Ambassador – new model 


 

 

In 1957 all the tooling of the British Morris Oxford Series III was transferred to India. The car was renamed the Ambassador and series-production started in 1957.
Styling changes from the Morris Oxford series II (Landmaster) to Morris Oxford series III (Ambassador) includes deep headlamp cowls and small rear wing "tail fins" – all the rage in 1956. The dashboard and steering wheel are completely redesigned. The Landmaster's flat-plane two spoke steering wheel gave way to a stylish dished steering wheel with three spokes made-up of four wires per spoke, for the Ambassador. Also a new, dimpled hood made its debut. These models has a 1476 cc side valve BMC petrol engine.
