I wanted to post something in the Ascona forum since nothing has been posted here in 14 months.
Four speed manual!
I went to look at this parts car that is posted on Facebook. First it is a parts car- I’m sure someone could save it but really!
It appears to have most of its original parts, even has original Solex carb & the air cleaner is in the trunk. It’s missing drivers seat though.
The battery tray and frame underneath are shot.
Engine does turn over.
If someone is interested send me a message & I can provide seller’s contact info.
Car is in Flint, Michigan.

Looks like someone used that as a Michigan winter daily driver. Salt has taken the body panels and the floorboards and it still has its snow tires on the rear. At first glance from 20-30 feet, it looks very savable, but it doesn't hold up to close scrutiny underneath.

We used to call them winter beaters. As long as it has a good heater; when it snows or is icy and you don't want to risk someone sliding into your Lexus, you drive the old beater to work.
Love the snow tires.
