Ashley Laminates Ltd Sportiva

1961 - 1962 

The Ashley Sportiva as was Ashley's attempt at a Grand Tourismo car. Very pretty for it's day (and still is) it takes most of it's styling cues from its sister the 1172. 

Based initially on the 1172 the Sportiva used the 7' 10" Ford Prefect chassis. Later Sportivas used the Ashley MkIV chassis. In both cases the power came from the 1172cc Ford side valve engine. 

The Sportiva was also available in convertible form, although very rare. The pretty bodywork was made using GRP. Production was short lived but some panels were available for a time after production ceased.
