Factory Five Master Builder Henry R. Picks-Up His 818S


We’ve known Henry Renaud for more than 10 years, and in that time, he has built 7 Factory Fives (2 GTM, 3 Roadsters, 1 Hot Rod, 1 Challenge Car)!  Henry is an officer in the United States Air Force and has served two tours of duty in the Middle East.  While he is not in a war zone, he has a passion for building Factory Fives.

Henry wasn’t the only Factory Five customer visiting this morning.  Factory Five customer Gary Cheney stopped by to check out the 818S.  Cheney is putting the finishing touches on a brand-new GTM being built for SEMA 2013.


Above: Henry’s craftsmanship is exceptional.  His blown flathead powered ’33 Hot Rod earned one of the “Top 10 Best Cars at SEMA” in 2011!


Congratulations, Henry!  All of us at Factory Five are looking forward to seeing what you build this time.
