Old Ambassadeur 5000....

The word ‘Ambassador’ on the LH side plate looks very different from the late 60’s/early 70’s model that I have. Nice find.

These were the top reels in the 50’s and60’s still very good reels. I have one I got in 1964 for my 12 th birthday and still use it.

I think that is what they called a Record Ambassador and the number designates the sequential order it was made in. The very first one had no number at all. When they started date coding them they also changed to Abu..........

All that is based in of I understand what I have read about them I could be mistaken.

I found a website a while back (like 10 years ago) that had a ton of info and history on them. Some are REALLY REALLY old and came in a leather case. Based on your reel knobs, I think that is a pretty old one, 70s or earlier.

See if you can find info on google.

So, I emailed Wayne from Realreels.com and he said he believes initially that it's a late 50s, early 60s. He couldn't talk much because he was on safari and fishing in Africa (Seriously?)

I've sent out some more emails and as I get more info I'll share what I find.

Thanks for the interest guys.

So, I just got an email back from the owner of this website:http://www.lurelore.com/freds/abu.html. He said he is confident that it was made in 1956. He also said that it is not marked with Record or Abu, which could make it desirable as a collector's item. Maybe in the $250 range. Not that I have any intention of selling it, though.
