    1960 FriskySport Barn Find

    Here is a 1960 FriskySport found in a barn in Michigan. This brings the total number known to 5 in the USA and 15 worldwide. This was the first car built in 1960 with only 5 more before they stopped this model. 29EEA8B9-84E2-40C0-8825-AE4453D84659.jpg

    Seems there were lots of Frisky models designed back in the day. Here's a FriskySprint - pretty interesting design I'd say.

    Could probably fit in the glove box of today's behemoths.

    Sadly only the prototype Frisky Sprint was built by Keith Peckmore.

    Do I have pictures! The body has been removed and the chassis almost finished. The Villiers 3T was missing but I had bought one in Canada then one in Australia about three weeks before this car was found. I have my friends in the UK searching for what spare parts we can find. I will need to replicate the seat and top frame. 1F318B66-A572-4541-9033-368109E124FD.jpeg
