Re: NOS Parts Availability Anywhere?

Please I urge anyone not to use Macs Factors, he ripped me off a few years ago took my money and did not supply me with all the parts I had paid for.

Re: NOS Parts Availability Anywhere?

Hi Mike. Mike here. I'm also new to this forum. I just recently managed to score a NOS Unipart front pipe for my Ambassador. Thankfully the rear section is solid, but the front pipe had fractured at the joint. It may be repairable, but I won't know until I take it off. I'm just in the middle of some...

Oporto red is CMP. It'll be on your VIN plate on the slam panel.
CMP/425 I think? The car is covered at the minute so I can't double check, but I was asked by someone and it peaked my curiosity :)

Cheers,
Mike.

1982 Colour codes

Does anyone have a list of the 1982 colour codes please?

Or does anyone know the code for Oporto Red?

Cheers,

Re: XWD164X 2.0 HL Ambassador 2

It's great to see that this car ended up going to an enthusiast. If you read my post (TTF 665Y) you'll know that I was initially interested in purchasing XWD - but things worked out very differently for me, and I now have TTF 665Y instead. I will give you, and anyone else, as much encouragement as I...

Re: TTF 665Y Firewall repair

I will copy a post I entered in the Facebook page which I think is waiting to be published. The car is in a barn at a friend’s f...

Re: TTF 665Y Firewall repair

Interesting to see someone documenting these sorts of repairs, finding water ingress can be a frustrating business! It sounds like you're on track for making this a very nice example by going to so much effort to put it right. Thank you. Yes I was somewhat shocked to see the extent of the damage. W...

TTF 665Y Firewall repair

Hi guys. I'm new here, but you may have seen my first post in the welcome section, introducing the car. I'm sorry this is a bit long but this is the full story which some may find interesting. I'm about to start some fairly extensive welding work on the firewall of my Ambassador(or at least, I belie...

Re: Two Ambassadors

Hi Jon. I'm new here too and was just reading the other posts and was very surprised to see you have purchased XWD - this was the car that I was interested in last June/July and was actually looking for parts for it when I found the car I then actually bought! I actually contacted the seller about X...

Re: Hi everyone!

Welcome Mike! You have one of the best colours (I am also partial to Cashmere Gold with black interior) and in my opinion the best engine too. I would agree that rotten footwells and bulkhead are not at all common in Wedges, but any car can succumb to that if water ingress occurs. And there is an a...

This is just to say Hi to everyone, my name is Michael, please call me Mike ;) A little bit about my love of the Ambassador... This is my first Ambassador but by no means my first BL car! We always had BL cars in the family going back to the seventies. I remember many Rovers, Austins, and Triumphs i...
