Meet the new Factory Five '35 Hot Rod Pick-Up Truck!



Ask anyone who knows me and they'll admit that I can't keep a secret very well. Which makes this introduction of our latest Factory Five more surprising that ever. Last year, we introduced our all-new Gen 3 Coupe at SEMA. What I didn't tell anyone back then was that we had already begun work on this new, and very different, Factory Five Truck.

A year later, we are done with most of the tooling and getting ready to go to production at the beginning of 2018!

This truck is a new direction for us in a few ways. First of all, it has a bench seat so now you can take your girl along with the dog (joke there). This truck has street-rod cruiser style, but, like all Factory Fives, it has performance in it's DNA and will outrun just about anything on four wheels. The chassis is derived from our proven award-winning '33 Hot Rod.

I hope you like what we've designed. The truck is debuting at SEMA, and pre-orders can be placed on our website now! Click here for more.

FFR35 Truck

Good afternoon Dave. As the proud owner of an early MKII both my wife and I would like to comment on the new offering. We both love classic trucks. That being said we would like to see fenders, running boards, more ground clearance and a more usable bed area. A truck can be a corner carver, tire roasting monster, but occasionally it should be able to actually be used for a practical purpose. Are there plans to offer such options? We would be really interested in this truck if there are just a few options that suit our needs.
Thank you for the opportunity to respond with suggestions.
Ken Thompson

Pretty sure the frame won't allow a lower bed. You could always add stakes for some extra cargo capabilities, but remember this isn't a 1/2 ton pickup, it's a race car that looks like a truck.
I believe the fenders, etc. for the standard '33 kit will fit this one.

So it's a race car, but like the '33 it hasn't got a roll cage that would allow it to actually be raced. A properly braced roll cage inside that body is impossible.

FFS...just don't buy one then. I'm sure there are a ton of other companies out there making tube-framed, vintage-style Ford pickups that are exactly like you want....

Not entirely sure why you hang out here Dave, you don't have much good to say about FFR, you read up on posts by other builders and relay the negative issues you find (over and over again) you are not now nor have you built nor are you going to build any FFR to my knowledge and you keep yammering on about how awesome a build your car is. Why bother?

As far as the "race car" comment, you can go to any SCCA sanctioned auto cross run in the country and run any FFR. Expecting FFR to provide a base chassis that will meet the requirements of some unknown sanctioning body is just ludicrous, What kind of race car? What class?

Funny part is, the same flame wars seem to fire up every time FFR introduces a new model ('33, 818 and now the '35). It goes on for about a year until kits are sold and built and get out into the wild. I think the hot rod is over 1200 sold now, so I guess quite a few people have decided to over look the "major short falls" you claim the car has. I'm pretty confident the same will happen with the '35 truck.

ditto!!!!

Is this not why we take what they provide and make it our own? All FFR clients can take pride in saying they are custom car builders... I think that is what this is all about!

I think the truck looks awesome! Going to try convince my friend to build one instead of the C10 build he has been planing. Im interested in seeing what they did for the gas tank. I don't see a filler anywhere.

Arrowhead, I thought I was the only one that sensed that DaveS' comments were generally pretty negative. Uniquely negative from a guy who hasn't built one. The routine gets pretty boring after a while. I too think it is strange to hang out just to beat up on products that you have no interest in, and provide help predominantly when it refers someone back to the car he worked on.

It's a shame that folks don't always come here in the spirit of community. It's also a shame that someone decides to poke holes in a car (truck) that hasn't even been released yet. We know some of what the '35 truck includes (or will include), but not everything. And, as others have pointed out, the ability to customize every FFR is what makes these cars so great. It offers each of us a chance to improve or change anything we wish, whether an actual weakness or not.

I think the truck looks pretty cool, and I hope FFR does great with it! For whatever my $.02 is worth...

Regards,

Steve

Anyone who thinks I "yammer" about how great my build is hasn't paid much attention.

What I warn about is products made so poorly that they doom the buyer to spending enormous amounts of time and money, trying to make them function properly. I would not recommend that anyone buy a car like mine. It was a total nightmare to build, with no provisions for power windows, one door latch placed 3 inches higher than the other, significant misalignment of the upper A-arm mounts, springs that were far too stiff, a power brake booster that was far too small, a grille that was complete junk and gelcoat that up to 1/2 inch thick in places, requiring total rebuild of the door and trunk openings. The transmission mount did not have a removable center section, to allow the tailshaft to drop down for removal with the engine in place. The rear end housing was a new 9 inch Ford from John's 9 inch factory, but the axles looked like used junk that had been shortened and resplined. I measured about .015 inch of runout on the axle face - about 5 times what it should be. There went $400 for some new Currie axles. I got an $800 stainless steel gas tank from Tanks, Inc. that leaked. I had to drain it, remove and weld on it twice before I got all the leaks patched.

After the car was completed, my windshield got hit by a large rock, but did no apparent damage. When I got home, I was wiping it off when it exploded into a million pieces. Oze had sold me three tempered glass windshields that could get a person killed if they exploded while driving. I did get three replacement windshield made from laminated glass, with no charge.

I took the lousy grille, cut it apart so it would fit, then sent it to Alumicraft to use as a model to make a new grille. $1800 and 15 months later I got a beautiful grille that fit properly.

The power window project alone took about 80 hours per door. I estimate at least 3000 hours went into the project, with about 500 hours in body work, plus many more for paint.

Anyone thinking of buying a car from Oze Rod shop should think twice before buying - your're in for a world of problems.

I can brag that the car was 100% owner built and it looked good enough to get the top award in the homebuilt heaven class at the last Good guys car show. It's not a race car but I can drive it in the rain and wash it without water intrusion.

I've wondered and thought all the same things a number of times. On both forums BTW. Your car is awesome. Nothing FFR has to offer is any good. We get it.

I guess you didn't read the accusations that all I do is brag about my car and put down FFR. I'm beginning to think you're all a little dense. I spend most of my efforts trying to help those with generic problems that affect all cars built from scratch. If you doubt that, please review my post history instead of making things up.

Yes, I criticize FFR, because they sell kits with some of the same problems that plagued my build and they don't fix known problems, according to those still buying the kits.

I think the filler is on the back, when you lower the gate... (or at least that is what it looks like in the pictures on the FFR website)

Period correct

The more and more I look at the FFR creation and compare it to the REAL thing, the more I see that they have hit the mark, but of course this is still a Hot Rod that every builder will be able to make their own!

FFR did a very good job overall! a few areas that could be improved on, but just like all the other cars FFR comes out with, they get better over time as FFR "tweaks" on them

andreast, the truck you posted is a 1935 Reo Speedwagon. Here is a link to the story behind that one. https://www.hemmings.com/blog/2011/1...eo-speedwagon/

I saw Dave answer a questions regarding fenders and he said they would be available. Maybe not right off the '33, but they will offer them.

OK, but will there be a turbo diesel option so I can pull a fifth wheel with it?

What about a plow option for you rust-belters?

That would be sweet, welderup style. 6.7 cummins may fit. 700 HP, 1500 ft lbs of torque dually wheels and a gooseneck hitch. May need a little custom fab work. Looks pretty cool to me, this thread is getting off topic.

Forum for 35 Pickup?

Any plans to set up separate forum here for the '35 pickup? I know there are a lot of posters here that do not frequent the other forum.
Anxiously awaiting delivery of truck no. 11.

Thanks, Ralph

So it's a race car, but like the '33 it hasn't got a roll cage that would allow it to actually be raced. A properly braced roll cage inside that body is impossible.

Nope, no room for a roll cage in there....

Well shoot, I can un-ban him if you want!


No, wait I take that back. I'm liking the lack of stress and PM's!
