33 Hot Rod Page


The Factory Five Racing 33 Hot Rod looks for all the world like a traditional 1950’s Hot rod, but the similarities are all visual – and there’s nothing wrong with that!


In point of fact the 33 Hot Rod uses all of the latest technology developed on the race track and the end result is a race car chassis in a hot rod body.


As a result of this marriage of old looks and new underpinnings that Factory Five racing 33 Hot rod is actually quicked on the auto cross circuit that the MK4 Cobra which in itself is no slouch!


.If you interest leans more towards a traditional hot rod than say a Cobra, then you have arrived at precisely the right place!


The Factory Five  33 Hot Rod kit is the perfect place to begin the processs of building the car of your dreams. The kit includes everything you need to build the car except the driveline, wheels, tires, battery and paint. And when you get it done you have a car that like all of the Factory Five racing cars an every aspect of its intended use far exceeds your highest expectations.


Complete list of Included parts in the 33 base kit follows. Note that Items listed in Red Text are parts that Factory Five is required by the Cdn Federal DOT to remove from the kit in order to allow them to be shipped into Canada. All of the removed parts are readily available from alternate sources and as a resuly of having to delete all of these parts Factory Five has reduced the Kit price for Canadian customers down to $15,490.00 US.


The Base kit is $19990.00 US, but there are many options that can be added to these cars and the best way to gain a complete understanding of what your “Ideal Hot Rod” would cost to build is to sign up for the WCC mail list using the blue panel on the right. When you do so you gain access to subscriber only on-line interactive work sheets that allow you to option your Hot Rod as you  envision it and as you do so the spread sheet will price your build for you.


Experience tells us that IF you stick to the plan you embodied in the spread sheet, and that’s hard to do, you will build the car for within $1500 of what the sheet shows. (assuming of course that your estimates for Paint etc are in line with costs in your area)
