Factory Five Open House – June 14: 9 AM to 1 PM
It’s that time of year again and EVERYONE is invited to attend our 17th Annual Factory Five Open House event. This fun one day show includes car show awards, plant tours, live music, our famous Scratch & Dent Sale, free food (hot dogs sort of qualify), and this year, we will be unveiling our all-new 289 USRRC replica!
See the new 289 USRRC Roadster!
For years we have been talking about designing a truly authentic, period-correct 289 USRRC replica. We figured the 50th Anniversary of the original USRRC car would be an appropriate time to launch this new replica. We began work on our newest model last fall, and are excited to show the details and PERFECT execution of a period-correct 289 replica.
We will unveil this car in the showroom at 10:00 AM during our Open House event. You can view photos, full specifications, and get information on pricing and options on our website Saturday at 10:00 AM.
Expect over 150 Factory Five customer-built cars to attend this year’s event!
