 I have collected a number of documents that pertain to the restoration of my 1985 ascMcLaren Coupe.

Please excuse the low quality of some of the pictures.  I had to try to use fairly high compression to keep the size of this site under control. Please be helpful and send comments here.

ascMcLaren Literature

Coupe Poster
The blue ascMcLaren Promotional Coupe Poster.  Very rare.  Supposedly only a few exist.

ascMcLaren Order Forms 

A batch of asc Order Forms.  All these images are from the www.ascMcLaren.com web site and are Copyrighted.  I am only linking to them for completeness.

Got the following from David Beeke who tracked down a guy with a 1985 asc Coupe and some original paperwork!  This was from a guy with a 1985 Blue Coupe.

The following are the build forms from a 1986 vert!  Chris sent me these!

Foldout.  Good interior and Exterior pictures.

ascMcLaren Advertisements 

BF Goodrich Tire Ad
Ad for BF Goodrich T/A tires with an ascMcLaren Coupe on it.  This is from a Road and Track magazine.  I have seen other ads like this, just with different cars.  I have seen a Supra and a Fiero GT in other almost identical ads.

Ad shows the Coupe and the 3.8 V6 SC Convertible.  Its a one sheet, double sided ad.
