what we're building...

Order information for the Type 65:
  • Coupe Base Kit
  • Powder coat chassis
  • Body cut-outs @ factory
  • Tubular front lower control arms
  • 3-Link rear suspension
  • 302 headers
  • Ultra Lite electric gauges
  • Competition aluminum seats
  • 14" leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Upgraded Koni coil-overs
The 3-link rear suspension:
  • Modified frame
  • Axle mounts
  • Panhard bar
  • Rear coil-over shock absorber kit
  • Control arms
The 3-link rear is what is specified for the Factory Five Challenge Car.

The Type 65 coupe tips the scales at around 2,200 pounds.  This is a full 1,100 pounds lighter than the donor racecar, and will have substantially better suspension and handling.
