SEMA 2019: Factory Five Racing Shows Hot Rod Delights

 

Dig Speedstar, FFR’s new offering, chopped and ready to build.

Factory Five Racing was out in full force at SEMA 2019, and they showed new products from their extensive portfolio that wowed the crowds.

First up was the Speedstar, FFR’s new chopped, hot rod kit. We talked with FFR’s John Kabacinski, and he told Power Automedia, “The Speedstar has hot rod styling tweaks built right in. There are key differences between our ’33 and the new Speedstar. The Speedstar comes with different taillights and a fixed, molded coupe top rather than the ’33s removable top. Hood and side covers are an important part of the long, low Speedstar look, so they come standard.” Mopar power is triple hot, so all FFR hot rod variants, ’33 Hot Rod, Speedstar, and ’35 Truck, will now accommodate Chrysler power. Speedstar production will begin in January, so save your shekels!

Yup. that's a V12 LS from Race Cast Engineering from Down Under. What a killer.

Next up, dig Factory Five’s new C9 Supercar chassis! Fitted here with a V12 LS detuned to 750hp, this thing can accept Coyote and Gen-III Hemis, as well. The difference between the new C9 chassis and FFR’s GTM car, is the new model doesn’t employ a transaxle, so it easily accommodates a junkyard 5.3L LS or a $50k V12 by adjusting the driveshaft length. The C9 body has not been revealed, but look for it in the first quarter of 2020.

Then we talked with Mark Gearhart about his killer, Factory Five Truck build.
