Home grown Specials (3)

Over to the Do-It-Yourself department, where this time I stumbled upon a Mini based car with a body entirely made of wood. No, it's not a Hustler but a nameless special made by mister Stewart Ainscough of Wrightington (near Wigan) in the early 1970s. Other than that it is based on a Mini and comes with a wooden (marine ply?) body information is limited. It looks to be a two-seater but it does have rear side windows for which Ainscough appears to have used the glass of some leftover picture frames. Anyone who recognizes the windscreen and its surround? Or better still: knows more about it?

Ainscough Special used a wooden body and came in a - erm - distinctive shape
