Last April’s “Car Warriors” show on the Speed Channel featured two Factory Five teams of customers who each built Factory Five ’33 Hot Rods in 48 hours. The East Coast team built this beautiful orange and graphite gray street cruiser. The East Coast team won the show competition in an extremely close contest.

This car is powered by a Ford small block crate engine (similar to the West Coast car) featuring dual quads and about 400 HP. The car is running a Factory Five 3-link rear suspension with standard in-board Koni coil overs upfront. The paint work and interior are closely coordinated and the show host Jimmy Shine had a difficult time determining which car was better (East or West) and the driving evaluation sealed the victory for this East Coast car.

This car will be featured along with the West Coast car at the 2012 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
