65 Coupe "Bondurant Edition"

The Blue FFR Type 65 Coupe was built by Muscle Car Restorations of Chippewa Falls, WI according to a strict build plan specified by the legendary Bob Bondurant. The "Bondurant Coupe" as it is known at Factory Five Racing is owned by Dave Smith and was built to replicate the car that Bob won the first Le Mans victory in. The car is painted Patriot Blue with GM-10 Arctic White stripes and Gumballs. Powered by a small block Ford Racing 302 crate engine developing 345 hp, the car runs 0-60 mph in less than four seconds. Other nice features include vintage gauge set, Weber carburetors, three-link racing suspension and power steering. The car won first place at the 2005 Boston World of Wheels show and was featured in the Factory Five booth at the 2004 SEMA show.

The Type 65 Coupe that Muscle Car Restorations built for us has been one of the most impressive, reliable, and durable shop built cars we have ever had on our showroom floor.
The fit and finish of the MCR Coupe was outstanding, and the attention to detail is in a class of its own. This car has been used by David Smith as his personal coupe, on the street, strip and track, and it still runs and looks exactly the way that Muscle Car Restorations delivered it.
We have continually been amazed by John Balow and the MCR crew by the way that they surpass our expectations on every project., every step of the way.
