Factory Five News: New All Steel ’33 Hot Rod

Factory Five's all-steel '33 Hot Rod

Factory Five has been producing the ’33 Hot Rod since 2008, but for SEMA, they’ve taken it to the next level. The new ’33 will be the company’s first available all steel body. The first steel ’33 Hot Rod will debut at SEMA Show 2016 in Las Vegas on Nov. 1.

As an available option for the ’33 Hot Rod, the all-steel body comes complete with body, doors, hood, louvered front engine covers, and trunk. The steel is electrocoated to protect against corrosion, and the thickness is from 19 to 21-gauge steel depending on the part and location. The steel body is engineered with inner liners for strength. If purchased with a ’33 Hot Rod kit, the steel body option is $9,990.

“After 20 years and building thousands of high-quality composite car bodies, it is really fun to work with all-metal,” says Factory Five President Dave Smith. “Our goal was to match the modern Factory Five chassis with a classic period-correct steel body that would lead the industry in quality.”

In addition to offering the all-steel body for “build-it-yourself” projects, Factory Five plans to offer a turn-key ’33 in the future via the Low Volume Motor Vehicle Manufacturers Act of 2015. The company also has all-steel hard tops and fenders in the works for 2017.
