Here we have an unusual and rare Ambassadeur 6500 C , one of the last true classic external bearing reels before the palming plate models were introduced in 1980.
My friend Paul Brown has recently sold this reel on Ebay for nearly A$1500 !
An astounding price paid by an eminent Japanese collector who I hope will see this and contact me. I being such a keen collector, I'm sure he knows my website.
This is up there with my superb first release 1963 Ambassadeur 5000 C Delux mint in case # 9921 with all extras!
Nice reel due to rarity , Good condition but hardly excellent condition or MIB!
