Very rare Sport "Barchetta" 1959. English race car Ashley 1172 roadster (formerly registered in the UK as 738 KTE), now living in Italy. In the 1950s a company called Ashley Laminates sold various bodyshells, which were designed to fit onto Ford Popular chassis and running gear. Many companies produced similar bodyshells, usually made from fibreglass (as with the Ashley), the idea being that enthusiasts could build themselves a sportscar using cheap-to-buy parts, usually either Ford or Austin based. The car has been finished to a very high standard. Enthusiasts of old Ford specials will have already spotted the rare 15 inch Ballamy steel wheels that this car is fitted with. The basic Ashley 1172 shell went on to be adapted and used by Reliant Cars of Tamworth for their Sabre range of the 1960s.
This Ashley took part to the major Italian races (Mitiche Sport a Bassano, Gran Premio Nuvolari, Coppa d'Oro delle Dolomiti).
