I thought it looks a bit “Harrington” personally?

The Ogle/Radford car discovery was covered on page 31 of the June 2006 Classic & Sportscar, right next to coverage of the discovery of my Anadol. I think there are clear styling links between the two.

Morris Marina coupe or Sunbeam Rapier look a likes :D four doors don't work well with the design do they .
Sunbeam Rapier was my first thought as well, I'm referring to the (I assume ) steel bodied Aussie version

The original gold Ogle car post looks very nice , to my eye, wonder if the choice of the Lotus engine for ooomph? can't have been an easy seller if 'hand built' and 'bespoke' engine . .. .

SS1 1600 (AJZ ----), C30 (SK 57 ---)& 480 ( .. . EVU & . . . . CDC)
Regal 330 (VAV ---) now passed to another 'keen owner'
