Where is the OGLE GTE now...?!

Post by grifterkid » Sat Jul 09, 2016 2:01 pm

Hello folks...

Do any of you good people know where the OGLE GTE is residing now?!

I know it was for sale a while back but did it sell and, if so where did it go?

It'd be good to see it at a show somewhere but I worry it's stashed away in a private collection now which, although is not a bad thing makes the chances of seeing it really rather quite slim!!!

Thanks to you all in advance.

Ash

660 GLE is the Coupe based GTS.
TNY 13G is the Ogle modified version of the GTE, although its still a Reliant. I think thats the one Ash is enquiring about?

Without checking, I suspect that was the year that they drove it to the NEC for us?

Assuming that it sold, of course - the asking price was perhaps a bit strong, and may have been ahead of the market at the time?

I thought it had gone to the USA? The GTS, I mean.

If the Ogle GTE (TNY) did sell, then the new owners haven't made themselves known? If it didn't sell, then it's probably still owned by the Hodge family I assume?

Yes, the GTS is in the US with the designer Carl Olsen.

As the ad states 'one family owned from new'.
