If the old expression, “Seven gets you to Heaven” applies, then Factory Five is on its way with seven customer cars prominently displayed at this year’s SEMA Show! For the first time is 25 years, we were unable to attend the show, but our customers have made us proud! Here are seven winners.
Customer Jason Fields’ 900+ HP Factory Five Mk4
Factory Five customer Jason Fields debuted his 900+ HP Factory Five Roadster (unpainted) at the 2021 London Cobra Show earlier this year. He built the car with his sons, and it is simply one of the most technologically advanced and impressively built Factory Fives anywhere.
The car is featured in Ford’s display! Congratulations to Jason and his sons!
Factory Five Customer Craig Robatzek’s Stunning Red Mk4!
Factory Five customer Craig Robatzek’s Mk4 Roadster is featured in the Vintage Pro booth in the North Hall near Snap-On Tools. The car’s paint is absolutely without flaw, and looks even better in person. The car was shipped in the early days of the COVID pandemic! The car features Fords mighty 427W and sports Factory Five’s proven 3-link rear suspension.
Austin Hatcher Foundation Features Two Factory Fives!
2021 saw a good number of charity builds with Factory Fives. Here are two great ones!
The Austin Hatcher Foundation helps childhood cancer, and SEMA royalty Rose and Wade Kawaski sponsored the blue Factory Five Mk4 Roadster. The Cobra replica was displayed alongside a beautifully built Type 65 Coupe in the Central Hall next to our partners at KONI and just down the main hall from Ford.
Customer Phil White’s Yellow Roadster in Tremec Display
Factory Five customer Phil White’s yellow Mk2 Roadster is featured in the Tremec Transmissions booth in the Silver Lot outdoors near Ford Out Front.
Phil and his girlfriend Judy road tripped to Vegas and met up with fellow Factory Five customer jason Fields and his sons for a west coast vacation/road trip. Phil tells us that they stopped at the Pima Air Museum in Tucson, and took photos with several fighter jets, a Blue Angels F18, and even got pictures of both FFR Roadsters with an old retired Air Force One aircraft!
After this, the convoy rode side-by-sides on the sand dunes near Glamis, and then arrived in Las Vegas on October 28th for the SEMA Show.
Phil sent us more details on his epic road trip that we will post later.
