  1. 1966 Mustang GT Restomod first drive!

    by , 03-24-2013 at 10:51 PM (The FIRST TheFactoryFiveForum.com Blog!)
    My son's first car is really coming together! As a bit of back story, I picked up this car from a friend who had completed a complete drive train replacement involving a new 302, T5, Torsen rear end and '99 cobra brakes. I had to complete the wiring, enlarge the front wheel wells, install the drive-shaft and sub-frame connectors, finish the hardline/brake hose install, install the exhaust and gut/replace the interior. We've been making great progress (with the help of this forum) and today we drove ...

  2. Picking up a new project: 1966 Mustang GT Coupe Restomod!

    by , 07-17-2012 at 06:43 PM (The FIRST TheFactoryFiveForum.com Blog!)
    I'm buying a 1966 GT Coupe from a college buddy of mine. It has a new roller 302 engine with edelbrock heads and intake with a Holley street avenger Carb. The front suspension is new with Total control Products UCA and Global West LCA and sub fram connectors, Vintage 48 wheels and Nitto tires, an 8" rear with 3.55 gears and rare (I'm told) Torsen Differential. The body is straight with a little rust in front of the door and a small rust spot over 1 rear wheel. The front sub frame was stripped ...

  3. IMPORTANT Spam and Blogs announcement. PLEASE READ (11/10/2011)

    by , 11-10-2011 at 12:16 PM (The FIRST TheFactoryFiveForum.com Blog!)
    Greetings everyone,

    We have been experiencing daily blog spam attacks, and today when I cleared them out the recent blog posts widget on the front page refused to update.

    For now I have made it a requirement that all blog posts go through a moderation (accept) step that is similar to the one experienced by new members, except that every entry has to go through this step, not just the ones with links, etc.

    We will also be patching the install today to ...

  4. In Uterto!

    by , 03-14-2011 at 12:33 PM (The FIRST TheFactoryFiveForum.com Blog!)
    I was fortunate enough to have a high-ranking spy within FFR snap some pics of what should be frame # 2 of the anniversary (anni) series roadsters. This kit is scheduled to be loaded up sometime this week for the trip out west to California to my brother Phil's home in Encino.

    First up is a few pics of the building bay where two anni roadsters are having their aluminum pieces put on along side two GTMs. The obvious note here is the cool silver powdercoating. This is the first major ...

  5. T-Minus 1 week until the birth of a new anniversary roadster!

    by , 03-08-2011 at 01:08 PM (The FIRST TheFactoryFiveForum.com Blog!)
    My brother Phil, who like me has allways had the Cobra bug, jumped on the chance to get one of the new anniversary Roadsters. It's t-minus one week until it's done! It is scheduled to be completed on Tuesday, 3/15 and will be picked up by Stewart Transport shortly thereafter for the trip to California.

    Not many options on the list because the kit is so complete! The current plan is to stuff a TKO 600 - backed FMS BOSS 427 under the hood. Oof. It should be a screamer!
