The Ambassador is a rare modern classic as well as a very practical classic, with the hatch and huge load space. I'll list some positive points first, and a few negatives later. This car has had the cylinder head rebuilt with hardened valve guides and seats so it will run well on modern fuel. The twin SU carburetors were rebuilt using genuine Burlen kits and each has a new vacuum chamber. It's had all hydragas displacers replaced with top quality re-engineered units from the UK's leading supplier (February this year £800). The hydragas system was also emptied, and refilled with fresh fluid) It has a good and tidy interior with good upholstery. (no boot carpet) Roof lining is very clean. It had the starter motor professionally rebuilt. Within the last four years it has a new thermostat, points (supplied) rotor arm, HT leads, spark-plugs and automatic advance and retard diaphragm. Two new front tyres (this year). The fuel tank was removed, purged, and repaired professionally, then a new fuel pump was fitted and all internal tank hoses replaced with E10 safe hose, as was the sender unit seal. The bonnet and hatch hydraulic struts are all new this year from SGS engineering. New water pump and temp sender 2 yrs ago. Recent clutch slave cylinder (3 mths ago). Low mileage for it's age, 62606 miles when the speedo' stopped working three weeks ago. The negatives. It's getting untidy around the rear arches (1 tin of matched spray-paint included in sale). The speedometer has stopped working despite a new cable being fitted. It needs an exhaust pipe. It HAS one that passed the MOT but is not correct for the car. The dashboard has UV damage (cracking) but most cars of this age do suffer from this. It really would benefit from a full tune up, timing and snagging of the ignition system. The CV bearings are getting noisy.
