Here is a unique opportunity to acquire a high performance Ashley GT Sprite.

I personally imported all Ashleybody parts and fittings from the UK at great expense. Show quality paint work in BRG, gorgeous rally seats and interior in sage green, custom leather padded roll bar, spline mounted spare wheel, all new gauges and switches, Mota Lita wood steering wheel, rear fog light, front projector supplemental driving lights, all ancillaries, brake lines, fuel lines, fuel tank, all mechanical,electrical, hydraulicitems, etc.were addressed, nothing was overlooked to create a true high performance reliable GT. Everything is new or as new.Cannot be duplicated at the asking price.

Built to compete in this years New England 1000 mile road rally finishing 1st. A true giant killer, 1500 lbs, approximately 110-120 hp.Very quick, comfortable, ridesand handles extremely well. A bit snortyand a great deal of fun. Over 600 hours were invested in this build. Needs nothing, ready to be enjoyed now.
