I worked at Frisky for a while, as far as I know there was no connection with Meadows other than that the factory was part of the Meadows complex. I think the company was owned by a Mr Wright who had a small engineering company near the racecourse in Dunstall Rd. The engines were indeed by Villiers with the occasional Excelsior fitted if requested. The bodies were made on site. Just before I left the company there was a change in the front suspension system which was causing major problems, the suspension arm was breaking under pressure. Not sure how they overcame the problem, sad that there seem to be no Friskies in preservation.
