Frisky

02 May 2014

We are delighted to announce that two vehicles which have recently undergone essential maintenance work, are now up and running ready for the Museum's busy Spring - Summer days.

Good things come in small packages - the lovable three wheeled Frisky car, was originally manufactured in nearby Wolverhampton by Henry Meadows Ltd is of particular significance to the Museum, as it is one of only around 1200 that were made - it is thought that barely 75 of these cars survive to this day. The full restoration of the pale blue model has taken three years and was headed by the Museum's volunteer vehicle group.

The volunteer group have worked tirelessly to restore a second of the Museum's transport collection, the impressive 1948 Guy Vixen bus. The bus still possesses it's original interior which was designed by Wolverhampton based vehicle manufacturer, Guy Motors. The newly restored bus is now running transporting visitors around the Museum's 26-acre open air site, 

The restoration of this bus will have an important role in marking a special anniversary this year, as the Museum will be celebrating 100 years of Guy Motors on Saturday 13 September.
