Here are a couple Ascort pics for the thread.
My car is the centre car sitting on drums in the production photo. It was one of the first built and is under repair after accident damage.
The car in the right rear in the production shot with the bonnet up is the prototype car which is in some of the other pics. It can be identified in photos by the high door handle location. The car on the front left is a left hand drive prototype.
The man standing with the Ascort, under the Sydney Harbour Bridge (circa 1959) is the cars's designer Mirek Craney.
The damaged car is my car (circa 1960). This photo is obviously prior to the reapair shown in the other photo. The join line is clearly visible on my car when the paint is stripped off the front guard.
