You are fortunate to own an Ambassador MK-II. Congrats for the efforts in restoring it back to original shape. Sorry, I have no idea about a particular shop but sure do know that it’s much easier to source the parts in South. Perhaps someone else can advice better on that. Meanwhile, do share some pictures with us. :smile:

Hi Buddy,

I hope you can get the parts from Aditya Motors - Coimbatore and there is one more dealer I could not recollect the name.

If you could not source it from there, PM me, let me give some pointers in Ukkadam old market where you can get easily.

You can source the Mark 2 grills and all other necessary parts from Ukkadam market. If not you can get it at Mettupalayam old market. Coimbatore is a place where you can get all kinds of spares for Ambassador. Even i had bought the old type steering wheel with connecting rod for my Mark 4 at ukkadam market.
All the best for your project.

Hell lot of talented workers are available in coimbatore.

In coimbatore , dhanam autostore [formerly know as alagendra auto spare]has almost all spares for most of the cars and processing is also hassel free with quality.

Congratulations, Your Ambassador looks fairly well maintained from the outside. Try to retain this cream paint shade if possible.
