Factory Five has been around since 1995 and produce two replica’s of the Cobra family.  The 289 and 427 roadsters and the Type 65 Coupe.  The lesser know coupe is a remake of the six hand build that captured the 1965 FIA World Championship for the U.S. They were built on a 289 AC chassis.  As well as the cobra’s Factory Five makes a “33 Hotrod” and the GTM Supercar.
