Nodoubt I have an Ambassador Car in Pune (1966 model) and I want to give her to a good house where it will be taken care of and give me some more money than just selling for Scrapping purpose.I expect a Lakh of rupees but its value may be around 20,000 or less.
Now coming to your question,I do not know why you are interested in your wife learning driving in Ambassador?
It is not a car for Ladies driving especially changing gears is difficult and especially a mechanic or a good driver can change gears from second to third.Further the steering is very tight unless you get a power steering ambassador.
It will be better for her to go for driving a Maruti or better a Santro and then she can go for a bigger car like
Esteem for sometime and then go for Toyota or Honda.
