Ogle was fundementally a design consultancy business that designed a number of cars bearing their own name. The Ogle 1.5 was was a glass fibre bodied 4 seater GT based on the mechanical components of the BMC Riley 1.5 litre dating from 1961, but was also listed with the MGA 1600 Mk2 engine that concurrent at the time. For 1962 Ogle turned his sights on the Minis produced by BMC and made a 2 seat GT fibre glass body to fit on the Mini chassis. As an aside,1963 also saw the SX250 which was a saloon based on the SP250 Daimler Dart, with its dual headlights under perspex panels, which although never making it to production, was the basis from which Reliant built the Scimitar in 1964. The final project for 1963 was producing special versions of the Mk1 Escort.

David Ogle died as a result of a road accident in 1962, and as a result Tom Karen was invited to take over as Manager and design Chief of Ogle Design. He oversaw the design of many products including the Reliant Scimitar, Bond Bug and probably now best known for the Raleigh Chopper bicycle.
