1933 Ford Factory Five Roadster
The Built, Not Bought Company! Directly from the factory Five Website a little history… Factory Five Racing was founded in 1995. Over the years we have grown from a start-up business in a small garage to become the world's largest manufacturer of "build-it-yourself" component car kits. We employ a full-time crew of about 40 people, and are located in Wareham, Massachusetts (about an hour south of Boston). We make our products right here in the USA, in the heart of New England where American manufacturing was born.
For consignment a complete Factory Five built car. From frame to interior this car is all Factory Five, and all exquisite design. The deluxe nose and flared fenders, low stance and all hot rod, and mounted on a strong tubular frame chassis. Did we mention it handles like a Porsche?
Gallons of Seafrost Metallic cover the straight and true, laser perfect gapped car made from hand laid composite. The advantage doing a build like this is you can adorn it with whatever you want and do not have to worry about all that fussy old bodywork, and the inevitable struggle you will have to get it right, and keep it right! Looking at the car from the front, we note the gorgeous overly swept forward, shield style grille that also becomes the bumper for this car…careful! Swooping fenders frame the chopped body shell and join at the doors in the form of a body matching ribbed running board. The cowled hood has a pair of unique styled air intakes that strikingly look like they could be a form of a superhero's sunglasses! From 2 suicide style doors hang pristine side view mirrors and a curled door handles. Bringing up the rear is the curved back, more flare fender action, and big dual chrome tipped exhaust sneaking out the bottom. Seen on all 4 corners are shiny deep dish (Cragar) rally style wheels coated in gunmetal gray, and wrapped in low profile 17 x 9 rubber in front, and 18 x 10 on the rear.
Swinging open the suicide doors we see a very simple but elegant job on the selection of materials making use of black vinyl tuck and roll on the doors. Stepping over the ultra-shiny threshold/doorjamb, we put our feet on to plush black carpet that looks like it just left the showroom. Floating on top are two small vintage looking tub style bucket seats, also upholstered in black with vertical ribbing. A custom center console races through the middle of the tubs and houses the brushed aluminum shifter. A simple but elegant (the theme here) dash in matching Seafrost Metallic stretches from door to door, and has a machined swirl patterned aluminum gauge cluster filled with RPM gauges. A MOMO billet style steering wheel fronts this dash. The headliner is also matching black vinyl with painted metal all around the edges.
Opening the hood we are met with a potpourri of mechanical wizardry, and visual eye candy in the form of a 302ci V8 with Trick Flow Specialties Camshafts sporting a .499i/.510e lift. Also placed within are 1.6 ratio roller rockers. These combined with 170cc 1.90i/1.60e valves create quite a bang for your buck. All tucked into Edelbrock E-Street Aluminum heads. Topping it all is a Telorvek EFI system. Bringing up the back of this beautiful mill is an AODE 4-speed automatic transmission, which throws power back to a Ford 8.8 rear.
All clean, all custom built, tubular frame rust free, with some nifty bolt ons like 4-wheel power disc brakes, a-arm front and 4-link rear suspension, and a sweet new exhaust system snaking its way back through the chassis.
This Kit Customized Hot Rod Build needs to have a serious look taken at it, as it is virtually maintenance free (you will have to change the oil). No rust to worry about, no sagging body panels, no frame to bend over time, just a rock-solid turnkey build, that will also turn heads, and turn that rear rubber into smoke. Your turn!
