Herb W.’s Mk3 Roadster is Ready for its Winter Projects

Customer Herb W. from Melfort, Saskatchewan dreamed of owning a Roadster since he was a kid. When the time was right, Herb found a Factory Five Mk3.1 Roadster for sale that was “done”, but he saw the potential for ways he could make it his own.

Herb’s Mk3.1 Roadster gets ready to head into the garage for Winter projects after the first snow in Saskatchewan for the season, October 2020.

Since purchasing the Factory Five Roadster, Herb has installed a 347 with T5 transmission, redone the interior, dash, seats, gauges, wiring, upgraded to an electric e-brake, engine tuning, installed a lexan windshield, put on some Goodyear billboards tires. He already has some tasks for this winter including installing new Wilwood disc brtakes, changing the rear gears, and installing cruise control, new headers, and Speedhut gauges.

“It is very much a fun driver, not a show car,” Herb wrote to us. “When people tell me they like it, that just adds to the pleasure. It is usually just like these photos…. covered in bugs, a few stone chips, and sometimes some mud!”

Glad you’re out enjoying the Roadster, Herb! Winter is the perfect time to clean the car up, work on some projects, and get it ready for the next driving season.
