    Exclamation Factory Five 818S For Sale

    Hi All,

    I recently got into wheel-to-wheel racing, and don't have time for some of my cars unfortunately. My loss is your gain, as I have put a lot of time, money, and effort into this car. This is a fully built, titled, registered car. This has been professionally tuned and aligned. Car makes 240-250WHP on Mustang Dyno (reads lower than a Dynojet). This is a fantastic and fun summer car that gets A LOT of attention. Since completing my rebuild, I have put about 2000 miles on it at the most - enough to work out any bugs/kinks - but not nearly enough to even have any tire wear.

    Price: $21,000 with all spares included.
    Location: Saint Charles, IL 60175

    No codes, car has been professionally tuned. Any negative aspects I found I corrected as I went, it's a very clean car to be honest.

    I'm a bit of a noob. Is it possible to covert any of the non C 818s to a C? Would it just be a swap of the paneling?

    Much appreciated on the responses. Checked out AZPete, seems like the conversion is relatively straight forward if you can get the body parts. Been lurking for 3+ years, really want to have a C but no time to build. Would have time to convert a complete car like this though.

    Can't answer the 0-60 times on this car but I can say these cars are pretty quick. FFR does offer a soft top or the hardtop/coupe conversion that some have done.

    Road and track has an article on the 818. You can find it in FFR's website. It has specs on 0-60, 1/4 mile times ect.

    Thanks for answering - I'm not always on the forums... so this general info is great for those that haven't been around the cars.
