Henry Meadows did not produce engines for the Frisky, they were licensed to produce the glass fibre bodies and afterwards assemble them.
The engines were made by Villiers and were of the 2 stroke variety. smaller one was of 195cc and if you were rich, you had the 250cc twin engine.The glass fibre bodies were of a very poor quality, although it must be remebered that this was the infancy of glass fibre car bodies.
My Father owned a garage in March End Road Wednesfield and the bodies were sent to us for rectification.The car was not a success and production only lasted for about a year or so.
I have not seen a Frisky since although I suspect ther must be a few somewwhhere.
