614 E. Auto Center Dr.
Factory Five is known to be the masters in building classic Shelby Cobras with plenty of modern flair. So just imagine what they can do with an iconic 1933 Ford 3-Window Roadster. The stroker V8 power, sports suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, four-speed auto with overdrive, and a comfortable A/C interior prove this is a true stunner that's a solid all-around driver.
This is a modern fiberglass build done to the quality Factory Five Racing standard. But what you'll probably notice is the very cool ways this goes old school. The open engine bay sides, front cycle fenders, and clean lines look like it could have been another American Graffiti car. But that's part of this car's deceptively cool style. All that open space shows off the modern front suspension and how well the strong frame is integrated into the body. And those solid steel wheels with beauty rings are pure hot rod cool. So you may not first notice how they are a 17-inch size that lets you fit better modern tires. And the low-dipping grille, frenched taillights, and polished dual exhaust tips are all part of this performance car attitude. And it's all wrapped in a bright red with the kind of quality that reminds you there's less than 4,200 miles on the full build.
You may be wondering why this is called a roadster if it's clearly a three-window coupe. That's because Factory Five has a unique style where the full top (with windshield) unbolts for a roadster. Both versions work well with the premium features in this Ford. When you're a coupe, you'll appreciate the power windows that let you have this fully enclosed. And when you're a roadster, the air conditioning adds cold air to your breezes. Plus, no matter how you choose to motor, you'll find the full interior attractive. Suicide doors, red carpet piping, and sculpted bucket seats give this plenty of added style. And there's also plenty of driver substance with the sports steering wheel on a tilt column, a Lokar floor shifter, and a dash dominated by AutoMeter readouts.
The body is a classic style Ford, and so it's great to have a proper Ford powerhouse, too. This is a 347 cubic-inch stroker V8 with aluminum heads. It inhales deeply with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, and BBK headers let this awesome motor exhale with a sweet sound out of the dual exhaust. This also has good supporting components, like an HEI distributor and an aluminum radiator with electric fan. Big power is far from this build's whole story. Factory Five also builds an outstanding chassis. It's a strong setup that also has the right suspension components. It includes an independent A-arm front end and a trailing arm rear with adjustable coilovers. Add in a four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, modern sport tires, and four-wheel disc brakes, and this is as good at eating up the highway miles as it is eating up the asphalt.
This is the low-mileage build that gives you iconic style and the best upgrades. So don't miss this coupe/roadster. Call today!!!
