For sale in our St. Louis showroom is an amazing 1933 Factory Five Racing Roadster. Under the hood of this 33' Roadster you will find an awe-inspiring LS3 supercharged V8 engine that is ready for any style of driving, but really just wants to go fast. A TR-6060 six speed manual transmission transfers the ridiculous horsepower to the 8.8" SureTrac rear end that houses 3.50 gears. Wilwood disc brakes adorn all 4 corners and provide excellent stopping power. A 3 link suspension setup is out back with Koni coilovers, with a tubular A-arm setup in the front. The House of Kolor Candy Apple Red paint is beautiful, and is the absolute perfect shade of red for this car. The tan interior looks fantastic as well with Dakota Digital gauges, AM/FM radio with a CD player and a backup camera, and of course the Simpson harnesses to keep your body in check as you test the laws of physics when the law isn't looking. Schott aluminum/alloy wheels are wrapped in low profile radial tires and provide an awesome look and stance for this 33' Roadster. And yes, it is a roadster. The entire roof, windshield included, is removable, making the ultimate open air ride experience. The 1933 inspired hot rod was built in 2013, but is titled as a 1933 FFRI Roadster. Being titled as 1933 will make it easier to register in any state. The odometer reads 996, which represents the actual mileage on the car since the build was complete. Options for this 1933 Factory Five Roadster include: Air Conditioning, AM/FM Radio with CD Player and Backup Camera, Cruise Control, Vinyl Interior, Tilt Wheel, Seat Belts, Keyless Entry, Power Locks, Power Windows, Power Brake, Electric-Assisted Steering, Aluminum/Alloy Wheels, and Radial Tires.
