In the 50s and 60s there were many fibreglass bodies made for the impecunious car fan so that he could convert his Austin 7 or (in the case of this one) his Ford Popular into a racy bird-puller. A kind of parallel development to the American Hot Rod fad, but much lower key. Ashley, along with Falcon and Rochdale were amongst the most successful. In fact this chap tells me he has 2 Rochdales as well, somewhere amongst his packed buildings.
In front of the Ashley is a pair of moulds. The front one screams Frogeye Sprite, because of the curved bottom edge, but the back, I really can't decipher. The owner thinks the front is a Lenham, but I'm not too sure.
It seems to be mainly aluminium and is fitted with a 1500 cc Ford pre crossflow engine, a la Corsair.
Apparently it has a huge rear axle which contains a worm driven diff section. One assumes this is to allow the quite small engine to develop some useful torque. It was normal to see these things doing all of 4-5mph.
Of course, all around, under and on top of these is junk, iron and otherwise.
Fenland is full of such places. Nobody throws anything away. You should see inside the big shed they're all piled against! Not every day that you can just alight upon an unused Eaton supercharger for a Mini Cooper (a proper one, not the BMW travesty)
But for weathering details and junk piles, please regard as simply good reference. And if you can replicate that slightly translucent, mossy, filthy fibreglass mould look, please tell me how.
