1930’s Hotrod Powered By BluePrint

1930’s Hotrod Powered By BluePrint

Our friends at Factory Five offer hot rod fans the chance to experience a vintage Ford with today’s speed and technology.

Factory Five uses modern engineering to build cars that perform as good as they look.

This traditional 1930s Ford is difficult to replicate because the original frame, chassis, and suspension designs that make up the bulk of what is sold today, are not really capable of delivering sports car performance and modern ride quality.

Using the Factory Five product template helps keep the design as traditional as possible but make performance and drivability the focus.

This awesome 1933 Ford hot rod is powered by our 427 LS! BluePrint also offers a new, automatic 4L series GM trans for the LS engine!

Our crate engines offer a custom builder, hot rodder, or kit car builder an engine that is ready to drop in the vehicle. They come complete with all the components that will be needed to start and run the engine super quickly.

BluePrint engines are dyno-tested and shipped with a documentation of their high-performance power curve.

We love seeing our engines in awesome rides: remember to share your #BluePrintPowered pictures with us on social media!

From the Land of Stories, a BluePrint Engines and Factory Five Collaboration

From the Land of Stories, a BluePrint Engines and Factory Five Collaboration

Known for its ornate castles, native beers, and medieval towns, the Czech Republic is home to the famous Škoda Auto Company along with dozens of auto racing tracks.

The Czech Republic is also home to this amazing Mk4 Roadster that is powered by one of the many combos we’ve specifically built for Factory Five customers!

This blue and white striped two-seater is the perfect ride to cruise around the cobblestoned streets of Europe.

The Mk4 roadster the world's best-selling, best-engineered, and best-performing replica of all time.

It’s designed to accurately reproduce the looks of the legendary 427 Cobra while using modern technology, parts, and materials to improve performance, reliability, and comfort.

You can build a Factory Five Mk4 Roadster by either using parts from a Mustang donor car or you can get a complete kit. Either way you choose, Factory Five has engineered the kit to make the entire process as simple and straightforward as possible. The only additional parts you’ll need besides a kit are your own engine, transmission, wheels, tires, and paint!

Factory Five uses our BluePrint Engines and we’ve designed several drop-in engine and transmission packages for Factory Five customers.

Our engines are brand-new, high-performance, drop-in engines that are dyno-tested with the industry’s best warranty, and are ready to run!

(Did we mention how much we love this mural?!)
