‘33 Hot Rod
How We Came to Build a Hot Rod
Ten years ago I swore we would never build a Hot Rod. The ones I had seen were
beautiful machines whose handling and performance were a big disappointment. Our focus
at Factory Five has always been to use modern engineering to build cars that perform as
good as they look. The idea of building a traditional replica of a 1930s Ford was an inherent
conflict. The original frame, chassis, and suspension designs that make up the bulk of what
is sold today are not really capable of delivering sports car performance and ride quality.
In the October 2004 issue of Hot Rod Magazine, then editor David Freiburger asked illustrator
Thom Taylor to pen the lines for what he envisioned as the future of hot rodding in the form
of a “race rod”. He dreamed of a “glass body on a full-tube chassis with a gen 3 aluminum
V-8 at 2,400 lbs...imagine the violence,” he would later write.
When Jim Schenck, our director of R&D, came to me with his ideas for a next generation Hot
Rod I was immediately impressed. The idea of making a high performance and comfortable
daily driver '33 was exciting and that race rod sketch immediately came to mind.
Jim’s ideas weren't limited to just designing a performance Hot Rod. His excellent under-
standing of the Hot Rod market enabled him to see where there were opportunities for a “leap-frog” product. Today, most Hot
Rods are looks first and everything else a distant second. In addition to performance that leaves something to be desired, most
guys are forced to cobble together parts from a wide variety of companies and sources. Jim pitched me on the idea of using the
Factory Five product template on the Hot Rod. Namely, stay as traditional as possible, but make performance and drivability the
focus AND package all the parts together to reduce the number of places a guy has to go. It made a lot of sense.
We introduced the Factory Five ‘33 at the November 2008 SEMA Show where it promptly earned “Best in Show - Hot Rod” and
“Best Engineered Product - Runner-Up”. Since then, the car has earned a slew of awards and industry recognition. The car has
stirred a lot of people’s imaginations and changed the way people think about the “stereo-typical” version of a Hot Rod. We did
the same thing with our revolutionary AC replica more than 15 years ago....here we go again.

Dave Smith HOT ROD PREDICTION


President “With musclecars taking off so big right now, it will be a while before 48-
and-olders are the fresh buzz. But when that happens, it will be with a new
crowd and a new look. Our race-rod concept probably ain’t it, but the
street rod genre must evolve or die.”

‘33 Hot Rod Design & Concept
Hot Rod Evolution. By Jim Schenck
The most important thing to understand is that from the very beginning of this proj-
ect, I didn’t want to compromise what we, Factory Five, do with cars in building this
Hot Rod. What I mean is that when you design a car like this, it LOOKS fast… but
it's a big disappointment if it’s not. I really wanted to build a sports car that's about
performance and driving fun as much as it is about looks. Truthfully that’s where
the original Hot Rods started out. Guys who wanted to make their cars faster than
the other guys. In that sense I think what we have done with this design is faithful to
the original cars and Hot Rodding culture.
Apart from the driving focus, we gave a lot of consideration to customization. Not
only should a Hot Rod be fast but it should be a platform from which
guys can build their cars in a variety of ways to make their own expression, and
even change it once it has been built. The removable hard top/slide-in-windshield,
removable side engine covers, and removable fenders, among other things, were
designed with customization in mind.
I'm proud of this car. As the design chief, I feel that the car benefits from our
company talents in engineering and performance, while at the same time it
continues the legacy of American Hot Rods in a new and exciting way.

‘33 Hot Rod Manufacturing
The Most American of Cars Made in America
The new Factory Five ‘33 Hot Rod may have been born on on the computer, but it is made by
American labor right here in the USA.
While our talented staff of mechanical engineers uses advanced computer CAD designs up
front, our manufacturing team finishes the job by using the right materials, tools and training
to build a better part. Not only does Factory Five lead the component car industry in engi-
neering, we set the bar just as high in manufacturing.

Precision laser-cut aluminum chassis panels are hand In 2009, we were awarded the Good Manufacturing Our RPT Technologies welding robot adds consistency

Hot Rod Magazine Five-Day Hot Rod Build


The Factory Five ‘33 Hot Rod was featured in a three-part build series in Hot Rod Maga-
zine where the car was built in five days by a group of customers and magazine staff.
Shortly after building the car, editor Rob Kinnan took the car on the Hot Rod Power Tour
and competed with it in the GoodGuys Nationals Autocross in Columbus, OH. You can
read the complete article series on our website. Here’s what they said:

"Looks like a Hot Rod, but handles like an Indy Car”

"No lying, it took only five days on this one AND the best part is, you can have fun with a
group of buddies while doing it. Next month, we put the finished car to the test, but we'll
tease you a little here - it's really fast."

"Pro-touring can kiss our butt. The Race Rod is all business with the orange cones."

"...the car burned up the short autocross course with a time of 31.36 seconds...
quicker than all the Street Machine of the Year contenders.”

‘33 Hot Rod Frame
Our welded parts are made in
the USA with American labor.

A ‘33 Chassis Like No Other


Under our classic ‘33 body is a frame like no other. Once we accepted that we could not make an original style frame strong enough to
meet the demands of a performance sports car, we made the decision to design an all-new, completely modern, extremely rigid, and yet
aesthetically pleasing, tubular steel space-frame. The ultra-rigid frame is made of mig-welded, high strength carbon steel tubing and plate
steel. This unique design delivers great torsional rigidity, increased cockpit space, and numerous safety features.

Single full-width removable roll bar can


be used with roadster or hardtop. Made
from 11/2“ OD, .120” wall DOM tubing.

Safety designed collapsible steering column


and bolt-on mounts for Wilwood pedal box.

Each frame is finish welded by hand, but supported by CAD designed


tooling, high quality materials, and CNC robotics. The CAD/CAM
based jigs are built with laser-cut tooling steel and hold parts to a high
level of accuracy. What that means to you is that all of your running
gear and accessories will bolt right into place like they should.

High performance and partially


concealed cantilever style in-
board KONI™ mono-tube
coil-over shocks and tubular
front suspension control arms are
standard.

sions standard.

Side impact protection, DOT door latches,


tubular steel door liners, and welded drive-
shaft safety hoops are some of the safety
features built into the ‘33 frame.

‘33 Hot Rod Running Gear
Bolt-in Your Engine, Transmission, and Rear End
The Factory Five '33 Hot Rod is designed to use small block V-8 power, a wide range of transmissions, and a solid axle Ford rear end. In-
cluded in the Hot Rod package are the engine mounts, driveshaft, side exit exhaust, mufflers, and straight tubes with fasteners required to
match up to the factory or aftermarket shorty headers. All these parts make installing your running gear easy.

Engine
The '33 Hot Rod is set up to use small block Ford 289/302, 351,
4.6L 4V engines. and the new 5.0L Coyote. Also available are in-
stall kits for the Chevy small block and GM LS series of en-
gines.

The strong Factory Five '33 frame is com-


plimented by a modern race proven sus-
pension and massive brakes. Roll bar is
removable and also fits under the remov-
able hard top.

Transmission
The transmissions that you can use include the T-5 (Ford or GM), T56 (Ford or GM), 3550/TKO, or AOD. Others, with minor driveshaft
modifications, have installed transmissions such as the TH350, C4, C6, 2004R, 700R4, 4L60E, and the TG499. When you order your Hot
Rod, you will select the correct spline driveshaft for your transmission. You can also choose an automatic or manual transmission tunnel
(manual transmission tunnel is narrower).

Rear End
The car is designed to use a bolt-on
Ford 8.8” solid-axle rear-end. You
may also install a Ford 9” rear end if
it has the 8.8” Mustang supsension
mounts added.

‘33 Hot Rod Suspension & Brakes
Making a Hot Rod Drive like a Supercar
The goal of making a modern Hot Rod handle like a well-balanced sports car required more than a well-designed and
rigid frame. On the shoulders of our revolutionary '33 frame, we placed a state of the art suspension, precise steering,
competent brakes, and engineered the vehicle to have a lower center of gravity and excellent front/rear weight distribution.
Our engineering team developed an all-new front suspension design and joined it with the proven rear suspension from our
Challenge Series race cars. This new suspension configuration successfully delivers a combination of comfortable ride and
superior performance. The tublar control arms are exposed outside of the body while the KONI™ brand cantilever shocks ride in-
board and deliver excellent damping. Factory Five '33s have earned recognition for their handling and ride quality.

Front Suspension
The front suspension is an in-board coil-over design with elegant yet strong, unequal length upper and lower tubular a-arms and high-end
mono-tube adjustable coil-over rod-end dampers. Our rugged front suspension delivers superior handling without the compromises of
Mustang II style set-ups and it tells the world that this car does more than go in a straight line. The hot rod is delivered with the entire front
suspension, spindles, steering rack, brakes, and fasteners.

Rear Suspension
Clearly visible from behind (which is where most drivers will see the car from) is the proven Factory Five 4-link (standard) or 3-link (optional)
solid axle suspension with high-end KONI™ coil-over shocks and tubular control arms. The 3-link rear suspension was lifted directly from
our Challenge Series Racers, cars that have proven themselves on the track for more than ten years.
The Hot Rod is delivered to you ready to accept bolt-on suspension components. There are two (2) rear suspension configurations that can
be used on the hot rod. The standard suspension is a Ford Mustang 4-link rear configuration. An optional 3-link performance suspension is
available for use with 8.8" axle.

Steering/Brakes
A high quality Unisteer™ rack and pinion manual steering rack is standard. Front brakes are standard 2000 Ford Mustang GT brakes with
11" rotors and aluminum two piston PBR calipers. Rear brakes are optional since many people obtain rear ends with brake assemblies.

‘33 Hot Rod Interior & Trim
Complete Interior, Gauges, and Trim Standard
The complete interior is included with the ‘33 Hot Rod. We in-
clude seats, full driver and passenger Simpson brand seat har-
nesses, carpeting, gauge package, steering wheel and
steering column, ignition and switches, shifter and shift boot,
interior door handles, upholstered door panels, removable roll
bar, and choice of manual or automatic transmission cover.
Side windows, power mechanisms and outside door handles
are included with the optional hard top.
The beauty of the ‘33 Hot Rod interior is based on its simplic-
ity and functionality. The molded doors flow seamlessly into
the trailing edge of the dash. The dash is integral to the body
and comes with a complete array of vintage gauges. The
rear cockpit bulk head and trim piece are also included.

The cool thing about the Factory Five ‘33 Hot Rod is that it can go from hard top-coupe to convertible roadster in about an hour. Unbolt the hard top, slide in
the roadster windshield, and that’s it. Rear padded cover shown above is standard, covers rear mount area of hard top. Car shown with roll bar removed.

Hot Rod Magazine editor Rob Kinnan drops the hammer on the sinister black, 450 HP Factory Five ‘33 during a stop on the
Hot Rod Power Tour. The car was featured on the cover of the November 2009 issue of Hot Rod Magazine!

bought a Factory Five ‘33 in
late 2009. Six months later,
he won “Best in Show” at the
2010 New England Summer
Nationals against cars cost-
ing four times as much.

Right: The crews at HorsePower


TV and MuscleCar TV built a
Factory Five ‘33 with Ford’s new
5.0L engine.

This Factory Five ‘33 was selected as one of the Top 10 Cars of the 2011 SEMA Show by MSN.com
and NASCAR driver David Ragan.

When we say the Factory Five Hot Rod is com-


puter designed, we mean it. The ‘33 is used ex-
tensively in an official collegiate text book on
