Factory Five Customer Priest H. Stops In for a Visit

Factory Five customer Priest Hazelwood and his wife stopped by Factory Five yesterday for a visit, and to see the latest projects Factory Five is working on.  Priest built an award winning 33’ Hot Rod, then followed that up with an 818 build with his son Tim.


Factory Five President Dave Smith and Director of R&D Jim Schenck talked build details of the 818 (chassis #11!) that Priest and Tim are almost done building.  The car is driving, and all the remains is the finished interior. Priest commented on how shockingly quick the 818 is.  When their car is completed, we are sure the build will be another winner.

Priest’s custom interior in his ’33 looks fantastic!

Priest was also one of the first customers to use the 5.0L Coyote engine in his ’33 Hot Rod!

Thanks for the visit, Priest!  Hope to see you again soon!
