driven by John Morrison & Richard Jenvey. It seems that Vogue was an artisanal make like Daren, Huron, ...
Have you some informations about Vogue ?

John Morrison regularly posts on 10/10ths, you may be able to glean more info on the car there. I wonder why the car has cropped up now ??

There is a picture of the Vogue in action here:
I never managed to get any pics of the Vogue with or without it's bodywork
racingsportscars suggests the Vogue chassis had Chevron origins can anyone verify this, and if so what Chevron type would we be talking about ?
Edit: A Google search for Vogue SP2 "Lester Ray" brought another picture:

You may have noticed that SP2 has a Brixner body work.
I hadn't but I see the similarities between the original nose and cockpit surround albeit now RHD.

But if you're a GRP man that's the easiest excercise you could imagine.
Once put a patch of a glass fiber sailing boat but I suspect that is not quite the same

"I looked at your links to the Vogue and see that it was thought to use Brixner bodywork. Not so: The first was designed and made by Derek Mathews using a buck that he made himself, whilst the second was designed by me and made by Fred and myself in my garage. Fred had just finished a building contract which resulted in a stock of spare doors, so the sides of the mould consisted of two hardboard doors and resulted in the somewhat slab-sided look of the body. The chassis was originally Gropa – itself based on the Chevron B8 – but much modified first by Gropa, then for the DM6/SP1 and again for the SP2. "
My thanks to Richard.
