Olds Ambassador Ad from the Instrumentalist magazine, November 1966

According to this ad, Olds was using an epoxy finish on Ambassadors in 1966 rather than the earlier lacquer. Perhaps this explains why the finish on horns in the 500,000+ range seem to have held up much better than the lacquer on the earlier horns.
