Leigh, you are spot on, it's an Ashley Sportiva 1962. Rego 6999MU. body made by Ashley Laminates at Loughton, Essex
Ianselva, Only half right, the Typhoon was made by Tornado at Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire.

the days when a lot of men could actually complete these sort of projects on their own in a home garage.

My brother has a 1955 (or thereabouts) issue of Practical Motoring wherein the main feature explains how to build your own caravan!

Twin Window, strange you mention about the "issue of Practical Motoring wherein the main feature explains how to build your own caravan!" my dad did that exact thing in the front garden of the house shown in the original photo of my car around that time.
Built in the space between the flat 3 pane window and the front hedge, don't know if he used those plans from Practical Motoring, maybe if you can post the plan on here I can let you know if it was the same one, it was a 4 berth.
Had many great summer holidays in it at the beach at Clacton with the family, Dad also let it out to people so he made a bit of extra income as well.

Super Accessories...............I'm off into a wonderworld of nostalgia! The times I went there to buy bits for my Ruby, in an effort to be faster than the rich kid down the road whose Mum had bought him a Mini....
