"Allow me to introduce you to our ‘35 Hot Rod Truck. Like all Factory Fives, it has performance at it’s core, but this one more than all of the others is about cruising style.
The way we develop new products at Factory Five is unique. We have a small but talented design and engineering team. Jim Schenck does the core design work, and Jesper Ingerslev adds the engineering muscle. My job is to describe the design goals.
The ‘35 Hot Rod Truck keeps the core performance capability that we’re known for, but from the design goals on up, we added comfort and functionality goals. Our other cars are two passenger sports cars, and while this isn’t a four passenger, the bench seat means you and your girl can bring the dog or a kid. Standard power windows with door frame window surrounds mean air conditioning and heater/defroster make this truck modern-day comfortable.
The pick-up bed with angled sides made of stainless steel looks good, but importantly, is also functional. I suppose a trailer hitch is the next logical step!
Even though this truck will be capable of serious performance, we built a cruiser and a period-correct pick-up that is pure street rodder fun."
The all-new Factory Five ‘35 Hot Rod Pick-Up Truck delivers renowned Factory Five handling and performance, but in a cool, period-correct cruiser. Features like a bench seat, functional 5’ truck bed, traditional doors, and large cab make this performance Hot Rod into a fun cruiser. Vintage style on the outside, and with a curb weight of 2,380 lbs., it is still wicked fast!
