The Ambassador Truck

Ambassador! The grand father of Indian cars. It has been around for more than 5 decades now. An witness to the transforming India.  There was a time when an Ambassador would be owner’s pride and neighbor’s envy. A true people’s car – for everyone… from politicians to villagers. But with time it lost its glory and succumbed to competition.

This picture was taken in a tea factory near Digboi in Assam in February 2007. A 4-seater car had been transformed into a truck. The rear seats and the boot of the car had been replaced with a carriage to carry tea leaves from plantation to the factory.
