Type 65 Coupe FAQs
Hundreds of others and all of us here at the Factory have already been where you are and done what you’re doing. Let us help. Don’t suffer in silence or try and re-invent the wheel. Give us a call, log onto the Factory Five Forum to talk to hundreds of other Coupe customers and reference an expanded FAQ section.
Here are a few questions we get every day here at Factory Five:
I am 6’5″. Will I fit in the Type 65 Coupe?
- This is not always a simple yes or no answer because it depends on you set-up the car and how you’re proportioned. There are indeed 6’5″ Factory Five Type 65 Coupe drivers, but to elaborate, here are some things to consider:
Consider a different seat option than the standard Coupe seat so that you can sit lower and further back
- The Wilwood pedal box (which comes with the Complete Kit) is an excellent tool in optimizing pedal position and leg room
- Remember that the 4.6L and 5.0L Coyote engines require driver footbox aluminum that takes some space away from the width of the footbox. If you’re worried about foot room, consider a small block engine, for example.
- If in doubt, visit us or find a local owner on The Factory Five Forum who will let you sit in their car. Just remember that their car is set up for them and small changes like those suggested above can make a huge difference.
Will the new Ford 5.0L Coyote engine fit in the Type 65 Coupe engine bay?
Yes. The 5.0L Coyote engine will bolt directly into the new Gen 3 Type 65 Coupe.
Can I order a Factory Five Type 65 Coupe in a Right Hand Drive configuration?
Yes, the new Gen 3 Type 65 Coupe will be available in a right hand drive configuration..
How much does it cost to ship the Type 65 Coupe?
There’s a couple of options. You can come pick-up the car here at the factory for free (except for any travel costs) or you can hire a shipping company to pick-up and deliver the car to your house for you. We recommend using Stewart Transport if you decide to have a company ship a kit for you. Their phone number is 888-737-4852.
The Factory Five Forum
As part of a major effort to better connect with our customers, suppliers, and vendors, we launched the Factory Five online discussion forum. Many Factory Five customers are helping with this effort. The forum has updated blogs, photo galleries, and is a great place to connect with Factory Five vendors and suppliers.
There's a lot of great customer build threads where you can share ideas and tips to help with your build. The Picture of the Month contest is a great way to show off your build and you could win a Factory Five gift certificate!
Factory Five techs are very active on the forum as well to help with any questions and to share their expertise building these cars.
