Just purchased FFR1708K, looking for who built it and when, past owners, appears to be onr of the first Independent rear , 428 dual quads, red w/white stripes and white side pipes. Please email or call me at email@example.com 419-350-9266
Have you called FFR? They should have the frame registered to the original builder and then go from there... I'm not sure if they will release the originals name- maybe sone legal thing or something ... But maybe- good luck !!

Frank; what else do you know about it? I talked to Southern Hot Rods who sold it last year, Wendel advised that it was on the FFR site showing the build but I could not find it. Did the guy in Mass build it , if so how can I contact him? I like documentation on all my cars. I have an aluminum bodied 4000 series Carroll Shelby w/ 427FE in yellow and I want to clone this car to my original as a driver. any assistance would be appreciated.
John built it in 1999. It was the first IRS chassis FFR produced. Here's a link to March 2002 picture of the month that has more info. His screen name was johnnyb26. Try sending him an e-mail or private message.
Factory 5 wont release the info to you but the original owner can call them and tell them to give it to you. Went through the same thing this summer.
I got virtually no info on the car when I bought it. I've started a file on the car and as I get more info it goes into the booklet. Hopefully whoever gets it next will have a lot more info than I had. One particular issue I had was the oil capacity, original owner said 9 qts with filter. Two Ford mechanics said 12 qt. I swapped the pan out so I can be sure, it was a 12 qt pan. I was able to locate and talk to the original owner so information is starting to flow. Good luck with your search.
Hi, i think John moved to Fl. a few years ago , he built a very nice car and spared no expense in the build
