Factory Five Racing is the biggest manufacturer of component car kits in the world, but they are more than just a kit-car icon. The US-made company prides itself on being a family of employees and customers all after a dream steeped in American heritage, the dream of building and driving your own car creation.
To help customers accomplish this dream, Factory Five Racing provides the latest technology and superior components to their enthusiasts. This allows hard-working guys and gals the ability to build a Factory Five car that they can be proud of.
Now thanks to the car kit company, you can make your own dream of building a Factory Five car a little bit easier. With PowerBlock TV’s Factory Five Roadster Sweepstakes, one lucky winner will receive a do-it-yourself build package featuring a Factory Five MK4 Roadster chassis and suspension.
As if that weren’t enough, the prize package also comes with a Ford Racing 5.0L Coyote engine, a six-speed transmission, $5,000 in tools and equipment from Matco Tools and Summit Racing Equipment, forged wheels from Weld Racing, Falken tires and “performance extras” like oil and a filter from Royal Purple.
The sweepstakes is in recognition of a special two-part MuscleCar TV episode airing March 17th and 18th, as well as on March 24th and 25th, featuring the Factory Five MK4 demo car pinned against an original 427 Roadster in a variety of competitions.
Owned by Dave Smith, the Factory Five MK4 car was fitted with a new Ford Coyote engine, Wilwood brakes, Moser Wavetrack rear end and Koni double-adjustable shocks by MuscleCar TV for the competition, which took place at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The MK4 was then tested against Jim Maxwell’s original 427 Roadster in autocross, street driving, braking, acceleration and quarter-mile competitions. Funny Car driver Bob Tasca even flew in for the event, driving the 427 Roadster in the drag racing portion of the competition.
You’ll have to wait until the special Factory Five episode airs on the Spike Channel’s PowerBlock in order to see the results of the competition, as well as footage of the special Quaker Steak and Lube Cruise-In Smith attended while in North Carolina. And don’t forget to enter for your chance to win a Factory Five MK4 Roadster of your own!
