Factory Five Racing, Inc. (FFR) is an American automobile company that designs, engineers and manufactures assembly kits, chassis, bodies and related components for replicars and sports cars.
The original FFR Roadster was based on the concept of using running gear from a single modern donor vehicle, the high performance Mustang. The Mustang running gear was chosen for a number of reasons, but mostly because of high performance relative to cost and ready availability of parts through dealers. The earlier Mustang 302 V-8 is exactly the same block that powered the original vintage AC Cobra and Ford GT-40 to World Championships in the 60’s. Over a million Mustangs were built between 1987 and 2004 and the performance after-market for these parts is well established.
The donor car path is not the only way to build an FFR Roadster. The remaining mechanical parts can be purchased new or used from a variety of sources. The kit has been modified to accommodate a variety of engine, drive-train, and suspension choices. Over half of the Factory Five customers today build their kit using engine/drivetrain parts from a donor Mustang, whereas the remainder elect to buy all new parts or a combination thereof. Jim Youngs, the founder and editor of Kit Car Builder, says the Factory Five Cobra is the country’s bestselling kit car.
