Factory Five Customers Ed L. and Rocco O. Complete Their Mk4 Builds

2013-11-15-09.13Factory Five customer Ed L. from San Francisco, CA sent us an e-mail over the Thanksgiving weekend to share some photos of his recent Mk4 Roadster build.

Ed attended the Factory Five Build School at Mott Community College and purchased his Roadster complete kit shortly thereafter. He configured his Roadster with a powder coated chassis, Factory Five vintage gauge set, 3-link rear suspension, Factory Five 17″ Halibrand Replica Wheels, and installed a Ford 5.0L Coyote engine.

Ed has taken his Roadster on a number of fun cruises including the one pictured here to the Robert Mondavi Winery in Oakville (Napa), CA.

Ed’s friend Rocco O. attended the Build School with him and also purchased a Mk4 Roadster complete kit after they finished the class.  Like Ed, Rocco also put a Coyote engine in his Roadster, and used the Factory Five 17″ Halibrand Replica Wheels.

Ed and Rocco built their Roadsters side-by-side, and were able to take the photo below before Rocco needed to pack-up and move to Birmingham, AL.  Maybe soon we’ll see some photos from a cross-country reunion cruise!


Congratulations on two excellent builds, Ed and Rocco!
