My first was when i was 18 and was my first car. It has gone to the big graveyard in the sky in 1966
My second and third were in my factory fire in 1988 and were lost forever just after i had restored them.
The forth was sold to the bubblecar museum together with a foursome and a mark B bond for them to keep  and they sold them in an auction for a large profit.
Numbers 5 and 6 i still have so i am afraid that's only 2 out of 75 .

This is a 1959 Family Three dash, it is my car at present in the Micro Museum .
Can I suggest that a visit to it would solve 98% of your questions and avoid speculation.
The Ali side shelves were used on the Sport.

Interesting pair of cars. Never had the pleasure of a Rytecraft. Bit of a sad tale of Friskys. Still at least you have one.

Bumped into Alan Hillier, who campaigned a yellow F3 for a few years, taking it on some stiff road runs. Something of the standard barer at the time. He still remains interested despite not owning a Micro now. Bit more endeavor with Friskys now, it seems.

No worries, there is lots of help out there for all Frisky Owners and has been for the last 35 years, The Frisky Register run my H J Meadows of Meadows Engineering fame  :). Better known to us on the Forum as 'old man Meadows'............
In addition there are at least another 6 very active Frisky owners in the UK and America that are doing lots to keep Friskys on the road.

just a heads up these hinges for a frisky and possible gorden vehicles the 1s listed on ebay without the holes
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/221619131132?_trksid=p2060778.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

these are correct apart from taking a few inches off the tongs and then drilling the holes , thickness is correct

well they do appear a spot on fit ! but i still say the casting seems a bit coarse . Great research and result  :)

yes I agree a bit of a crewed casting but with a bit of milling and bull nose polisher inside the ball housing will make them ideal
