Period-Correct Wicked Fast '35 Truck!

The all-new Factory Five ‘35 Hot Rod Pick-Up Truck delivers renowned Factory Five handling and performance, but in a cool, period-correct cruiser. Features like a bench seat, functional 5’ truck bed, traditional doors, and large cab make this performance Hot Rod into a fun cruiser. Vintage style on the outside, and with a curb weight of 2,380 lbs., it is still wicked fast!

Pat and Mike from PowerNation TV's "Engine Power" spent four days building the very first Factory Five Pick-Up Truck. At the end of the week, Mike said, “Man, I love this truck! You guys are going to sell a ton of them. Winner, winner, chicken dinner!”

Everything but the Running Gear

Build Your '35 Hot Rod Truck!

The Factory Five '35 Hot Rod Truck continues the Factory Five tradition of providing everything you need to build your car except for the running gear. There isn't a better way to build a vintage pick-up. Rather than putting together a chassis, a body, suspension parts, interior, etc., from various manufacturers, our parts are engineered and manufactured in one place, and are delivered in one big box of brand new parts. Here's what you get and here's what you need.


And Now For Something Completely Different

by Dave Smith

Allow me to introduce you to our ‘35 Hot Rod Truck. Like all Factory Fives, it has performance at it’s core, but this one more than all of the others is about cruising style.

The way we develop new products at Factory Five is unique. We have a small but talented design and engineering team. Jim Schenck does the core design work, and Jesper Ingerslev adds the engineering muscle. My job is to describe the design goals.

The ‘35 Hot Rod Truck keeps the core performance capability that we’re known for, but from the design goals on up, we added comfort and functionality goals. Our other cars are two passenger sports cars, and while this isn’t a four passenger, the bench seat means you and your girl can bring the dog or a kid. Standard power windows with door frame window surrounds mean air conditioning and heater/defroster make this truck modern-day comfortable.

The pick-up bed with angled sides made of stainless steel looks good, but importantly, is also functional. I suppose a trailer hitch is the next logical step!

Even though this truck will be capable of serious performance, we built a cruiser and a period-correct pick-up that is pure street rodder fun. I hope you like what we’ve done, and I’m proud to add the ‘35 to our line-up of “build-it-yourself” vehicles.



The Factory Five '35 Hot Rod Truck is built on a modified version of the award-winning Factory Five '33 Hot Rod. Featured on the cover of Hot Rod Magazine, 2009 & 2013
