Princess and Ambassador Owners Club, which is United Kingdom based,
was founded in May 1997 by four enthusiasts, and aims to help owners of
Princess and Ambassador cars to maintain, repair, and restore their cars.
During it's first 19 years, the club has gone from strength to
strength and currently has more than sixty members worldwide. We are a friendly small
club run entirely by members for the benefit of members, and have no paid
staff. Below are brief details of the clubs services to members.
increasing passage of time since the last Ambassador was produced in 1984,
thoughts are increasingly turning towards spare parts in order to keep the
cars on the road. Some new parts are still available, but these are
becoming less as time passes. In order to address this - wherever possible,
the club purchases spares before they become obsolete, for resale to members
as and when required, thus enabling them to keep the cars on the road for
many more years. The Club has also purchase a number of service items in
largish quantities, which are available to members at reasonable cost. In
addition, we are in contact with several specialist parts suppliers who are
often able to find the most elusive parts.
There are many
other benefits from becoming a member of the Princess and Ambassador Owners
Club. One of these is the club website. The For Sale page is a highly useful
location where members can place adverts for cars or parts they have for
sale or wish to find, or spare parts they require. The Links page points
visitors towards several websites, mainly to other similar owners clubs, and
other useful and interesting websites.
A key feature of
any car owners club is regular contact with members by means of a
newsletter. All Princess and Ambassador Owners Club members receive a
quarterly newsletter which is full of information, and is written, printed,
and distributed by club members. As well as the huge array of both
technical and general information in each edition, there is also space for
cars and parts for sale (or wanted), together with details of the clubs
forthcoming events and shows.
summer months and into the early autumn the club arranges several meetings
at interesting locations throughout Britain. These gatherings are excellent
for members, as they are able to share thoughts on the cars, discuss ideas,
and look for assistance with any problems which nevertheless occur with
older vehicles. Meetings are usually arranged at the Pride of
Longbridge rally held in April each year, the Museum of British
Road Transport; Coventry, and the BMC BL Rally and spares day held annually
at Nene Park Peterborough in early August. In addition to these meetings, the club arranges
space at several classic car shows during the summer months - details of
which are published in plenty of time on the club website and in the
newsletter. So, if you are the owner of an 18-22, Princess, or Ambassador in
ANY condition and would like to meet with other fellow enthusiasts, then our
meetings are the place to be. You will be made most welcome - there will be
great interest shown in your car, and you will have an excellent time.
