Can You Name That Car?

Last weeks Mystery Car, Ogle Mini, Ogle SX1000

This was to be the winter ending stumper. And it may have been, but I put up the wrong car. Gary Kiernan sent me a teenie tiny picture. I went looking for a larger version and came up with this one, which I thought was the same car. It wasn't.

Answers came in fast and furious less than 5 minutes after my posts. Dan Thompson chimed in before I could get away from Facebook. Alan Brand came in second, but to be fair he was playing silly bugger and not online. Todd Robin Ziebell, Ted Andkilde, Jim Ellis, and Liz Morgan came in shortly after.

David Ogle founded the design company Ogle Design in 1954. Although this was only 8 years before his death, he had his design hands in consumer, industrial, and automotive designs.

One his largest customers was Bush Ltd., a manufacturer of audio visual products. Below is his design of the Bush TR82 transistor radio.

He was very well respected in design circles.

One of his first automobile designs was based on a Riley 1.5. Riley wanted to come out of the shadow of the new Farina designs. I am not sure if Riley was pushing this design or not, in the end only 8 were built. This is what I was supposed to stump you with.

In the fibreglass cocoon of the 1960 Ogle 1.5 was the chassis with tuned engine of the Riley One-Point-Five.

Ogle then went and designed a fiberglass body for the Mini. This time with some production facilities. At the beginning manufacture meant the customer brought in his Mini to have it re-bodied. Any Mini that could be ordered or modified was the grist for the Ogle mill. Later in the production Ogle provided complete built cars.

The car below is one No. 63 of 66 Ogle SX1000s built. RM Auctions had it up for sale October 31st 2012 selling it for old for £14,560. It looks like a neat tidy little car.

David Ogle died driving an SX1000 to Brands Hatch in May 1962. After that Ogle Design continued as a company, developing the SX250 around a Daimler SP250. Daimler was not interested in the car and the project went to Reliant, eventually becoming the Scimitar.

That was pretty much it for our "Guess That Car" feature. It will return next winter.

Cheers, DW
