    The Factory Five Barrett-Jackson Edition Hot Rod Truck!



    One of the things we did this year was to work with the crew from Barrett-Jackson Garage on a Special Edition Hot Rod Pick-Up Truck. The idea was born at SEMA a year ago when we unveiled the prototype. Jeff from Barrett-Jackson felt that his customers would dig on a shop truck with some stones. A lot of their part suppliers can buy the truck as a legitimate work expense, and so the idea was born. We built this Truck #001, and brought it to Barrett-Jackson Connecticut last June. Craig Jackson loved it, and wanted to do a bigger project than one truck. So he asked the guys to cover it up so that they could unveil it at Scottsdale as part of a special edition line of trucks in limited numbers.

    I put full details on our website. We are building Truck #002 live in Scottsdale in a few weeks, and we are taking a roller kit #003 which will be for sale at the show. This black Truck is #001 and is being auctioned in a good slot on Sunday, the last day of the auction. It's a pretty cool truck, and I think we'll sell quite a few.

    Can't wait to see these trucks, everything else in the FFR exhibit and many of you that work and attend. My Gen 3 Coupe full kit, received mid-September 2018 is being assembled in my garage just 2 miles North of Barrett-Jackson/Westworld in Scottsdale!!

    Congrats Dave, Tony, Jim, and all others at Factory Five for partnering with Barrett-Jackson to promote FFR to the massive crowds of car guys attending their auctions throughout the USA. Your level of professionalism during the demo builds at B-J the last 2 years, plus the design, performance, company reputation and consumer demand were likely all contributing factors. The Barrett-Jackson preview publication sent to bidders has 3 pages devoted to the '35 Hot Rod Truck entitled DREAM TEAM. "Great News: Factory Five, the world's largest manufacturer of "build-it-yourself" component car kits, has teamed up with Barrett-Jackson on a new Factory Five Barrett-Jackson Edition '35 Hot Rod Truck".

    Since it's only 15 miles south of my house, I've attended Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale for the last 24 years, as a bidder and consignor, so I've seen the growth of the auction and of Factory Five. From "Is this a real one?" I've seen growth to "Is this really a Factory five?". Now, this B-J '35 will add gas to the FFR fire, which will help all of us builders. Nice job, Factory Five!

    trying to sell my MKIV Roadster to build one of these. I have some very different idea that I think will be cool and very sinister looking.
