1964 Shelby Daytona
Classic Car Overview
There were only six original Coupes ever built and they captured the 1965 FIA World Championship for America; it was the final years before big budgets made road racing too expensive for the average guy. More than 50 years later, the muscular lines and aggressive stance of those amazing cars still makes people stop and stare.
The Factory Five Type 65 Coupe is true to the road racing legacy that gave the design its birth. With modern engineering and technologies, this car is much more livable than the originals.
F5R1000101DC is not your typical kit car; the quality of the build is obvious in the finish and details. The reliable sensorial power from the Coyote and the smooth shifting transmission deliver an incredible driving experience.
Painted Ford Dark Portofino Blue, the hand-laid 3/16 laminate composite body includes a hinged nose, main rear clip and doors with hinged glass rear window. Made with high-quality vinyl ester resin, both the driver and passenger doors come with molded door liners and DOT door latches. An original style molded-in hood scoop adorns the front while the rear main body section comes with a laminated rear spoiler and a Le Mans style original polished aluminum fuel cap. Spectre Air Filter Ceramic Coated side pipes and ceramic film tinted windows give the sports car original styling while managing the heat with modern technology. The Type 65 rides on Vintage Wheels FA 18 spinner wheels shod with Nitto NT555 Gen 2 tires.
The body sits on a 95 wheelbase chassis comprised of a complete jig-welded Gen 3 powder coated tube frame. The Type 65 has rack & pinon power steering, adjustable upper control arms with ball joints and fasteners, a 2015 Ford independent rear suspension with high-quality KONI mono-tube, rod-end, coil-over shocks.

The 65 Coupe kit comes with authentic racing style seats, door latches, toggles, rear view mirror, and a dash and gauge assembly that is period correct. The Daytona has a collapsible column connected to the vintage leather wrapped steering wheel with an aluminum boss, center section and Factory Five Racing badge.
Stay cool with the Vintage Air Front Drive AC system as you grip the Lokar Shifter with manual override. The racing style dash holds a Kenwood GPS navigation system with dual cameras and SCT Tuner. The 6061-T6 aluminum panels are lined with Cool It Thermo Tec Heat & Sound Suppressor to keep it comfortable. The roster of features includes RT's custom turn signal assembly, door sills and pontoons, leather seats and steering wheel, a vinyl wrapped dash, headliner and custom carpet door panels.
