FAIRTHORPE ELECTRON MINOR

2-seater sports.

The model that ensured the company's survival: a simple vehicle based on Standard Ten and latterly Triumph Herald components, with a performance that was always brisk on account of the car's light weight. EM4/EM5/EM6 (1965-73, and only 50 made) latterly used 1296cc engine, and EM6 had GT6 chassis in place of Fairhtorpe's own frame. Spartan and somewhat crude, but fun.
