The Frisky Family Three was basically a three-wheeled version of the coupe fitted with a smaller Villiers 9E engineand MacPherson strut front suspension. Watch the video from idriveaclassic for more info:
Having three wheels instead of four meant the car qualified for lower vehicle excise duty and also meant that it could be driven with a motorcycle licence.
It entered production in about February 1959.The three-wheel Family Three was classed as a motorcycle combination for tax and driving licence purposes.
