Factory 5

We have recently joined forces with Factory 5 Racing out of Wareham, MA. They build kit cars. Kory and Dave met up with the owner at the SEMA show in Vegas. Go figure they are about 15 miles from our shop and they meet 3,000 miles away!

Anyway, they decided that we could collaborate on something. It has finally come together! Last week they delivered a 33 Ford 3-Window kit car. We are going to build the car for Factory 5. The guys and especially my dad are extemely excited about the project. The car is going to be one bad looking car!

It will have a 3-Valve Ford racing motor, Tremec 6-speed transmission, Independant Front Suspension, 4-wheel disc brakes, and Perewitz paint job. Just to give you a little idea about the car, it will only weight 2100 lbs complete, minus Dave!

The kit has have a more modern chasis, suspension and brake. So it should handle better than a new Z06 Corvette. Anyone up for a challenge?

Look for photo's tomorrow of the chassis, boxes, parts, misc stuff, etc.

I will take photo's and update you along the way. It is going to be very fun project.
