    Back up for sale - custom built MKIV with Coyote and Tremec -- NEW VIDEO ADDED

    Professionally built custom Factory Five Racing MKIV Roadster with Ford Coyote Generation II motor and Tremec 3550 5 speed transmission. There are no issues with this car. I am a professional builder and this is my personal car!

    I added a few more details below. Some interest but still for sale.

    - 3900 trouble free miles

    - Removable soft top

    - Air conditioning (Vintage Air Frontrunner system)

    - Power steering

    - Front sway bar

    - Power brakes

    - LED headlights, tail lights and turn signal

    - Custom driving lights

    - Custom under-car exhaust using Spintech NASCAR oval tubes and mufflers

    - Custom roll bars and seat belt mounts

    - Custom door hinges

    - Custom dash board

    - Powered foot box vents

    - Glass wind wings

    - Sun visors

    - Custom rearview mirrors

    - Custom Auto Sound stereo with iPod connection, amplifier and 4 speakers

    - Rear glove box

    - Rear mounted battery

    - Custom carpet in cockpit and trunk

    - Custom radiator with twin fans

    - Cobra Jet detailed intake

    - Driving lights

    - Heated seats with adjustable driver’s seat

    - Main battery cutoff with push button start

    - Custom powder coated 17 inch wheels

    - VMP fuel rails

    - 418 rear wheel horsepower as tuned and measured by VMP Performance

    - MSD Ignition

    - 3 link rear end with 3.55:1 gears

    - Quick Time blow proof bell housing and custom driveshaft safety hoop

    - Custom door panels

    - Powder coated frame

    - Complete stainless-steel braided fuel and remote oil filter lines

    -- Reserve is much less than the cost to duplicate this vehicle

    -- All parts new when built

    Car is for sale on eBay as well as locally and could not be reproduced for what I am asking for it!

    Selling because my Gen III Coupe is coming out of paint real soon and 2 toys is 1 too many according to my boss (wife)!

    Price is $52k.

    Thx,

    Henry

    Seems the color is throwing people off on this car. You either love it or hate it. I listed it it on eBay one more time and if it does not make reserve ($45k), i will have it repainted to a more conventional color and raise the price back to cover the paint job.

    Thanks for looking,

    Henry

    I wonder if some stripes would help break up the color, instead of painting the entire car?

    I agree, some $300 white stripes will make this car look great.

    I can only guess as to why nobody has taken advantage of the pricing. Possibly the lack of traditional cosmetic features (ie side vent cutouts and side exhaust)...not even sure if that can be done at this stage as I have never built one of these. Everything else is amazing that there is no excuse for it not to be sold.
    I wouldn’t touch the paint...stripes maybe.

    Maybe itís just me but I think black stripes would be better with this shade of blue.

    Interesting... Looks like Nitrous (3 stage) or Laguna Blue. Ford color. Am I close? I LOVE the color... I'm using the 2018 Ford RS Blue on my build, but adding some Satin BOSS stripes to break it up.

    GORGEOUS CAR!

    Black Stripe would also match your wheel and roll bars too.

    Have you thought about adding the side louvers because it might add a extra character.

    Thanks guys, I reached out to my painter for the black stripes They would also match the roll bars and exhaust. I appreciate the constructive feedback and will get them done if it does not sell on eBay or at the Texas Cobra Club Spring meet.

    Not sure if the side vents are an option but I think it would break up the side a little bit. Make them black too.
    Funny how I never saw/noticed that or the fact it doesn’t have side pipes either.

    Thx John - too late for the side vents without painting the whole car. I got a guy on eBay trying to lowball me but I am sticking to my guns on price. Anyone who knows these cars know that is a steal. The custom exhaust was over $3k (Spintech oval tubes and muffler as used by NASCAR) alone. I did the undercar because my wife got snake bit. As I said above, if she does not reach the BIN price this time around on eBay or I don't get a buyer at the TCC Spring Meet, I am going to put the stripes on and raise the price. I may also do something special in the area where the vents usually go.

    Was at TCC and had no clue this car was for sale, as I was there looking for a new ride since I sold mine in October 2018. I looked at the car because the color as it stood out so much, my luck as usual.LOL

    We can ship it back Scott!!! I see your bid on eBay. The reserve is set at the BIN price which is the same price here - $45k.

    Thanks for putting the video up Steve! I just updated my eBay ad as well!

    There were a couple of people interested in TX and they took my card and paper ad. She'll be in someone else's garage soon.

    My apologies as I did not see the ads or would have asked as I'm pretty sure I talked to you while you were hooking up your trailer when your cones got moved!
