The new Meadows Frisky made its first public appearance at the 1957 Geneva Motor Show, with fibreglass bodywork designed by top Italian stylist Michelotti and produced by Vignale of Turin. The two-seater car, manufactured at the factory of Henry Meadows Ltd at Fallings Park in Wolverhampton, England was powered by a 2 cylinder, two-stroke air-cooled, 250c.c. Villiers engine and had a narrow rear track of only 2ft 8 inches to obviate the need for a differential. It had a top speed of 65 mph, a fuel consumption of only 65 mpg, ample room inside for two adults and was fitted with two gull-wing doors.
