Factory Five Racing Coupe: Ordered Today!   Leave a comment

Thanks to Jason and Rick at The Factory – and Dave Smith – president of FFR – for the GREAT 50-50 sale – I have configured and ordered my 65 Coupe component car. I am now looking for a Ford Racing 302 V8, with electronic fuel injection and a Super T5 transmission to complete the list of ingredients.

Delivery is scheduled for late September. I am planning to hold a “Delivery Party” with the local F5R builders and some other friends in the area. Probably another great opportunity for another Networking / End of Summer / Coupe Delivery BBQ!

I will be documenting the build with still images and video, too – so stay tuned!

A gallery of these beautiful cars can be found here:

A New Project

I am just about ready to move from the “Planning” stage to the “Ordering” stage in my latest project: Building a Factory Five Racing 65 Coupe. I have been thinking about building one of these even before I had a drivers’ license! A great sale is on this month – 50% off all accessories – so I need to finalize my configuration and place my order in less than two weeks.

The picture above (from a 3/22/12 post by vnmsss on the Factory Five Racing forum) is what I am talking about…. and is the color scheme that is close to what I have in mind – although I want black competition stripes.

Building a kit car will take two years, so this will generate a lot of content on this site!
