I used to drive a Hindustani Ambassador....
around 1970. A riding lawn mower had better pickup. The problem in India then was the 100% tariff on any vehicle not made in India.It was holdover from Ghandi's edict that Indians must only consume Indian made products. If you wanted a profitable career as a limo driver, you get on a long waiting list to buy foreign embassy's fleet cars when they got retired.
If you could score a full sized Chevy sedan, you could live like a king (almost).
