I had been thinking it would be cool if factory five put other bodies on the gen 3 65 coupe chassis. For example, a grand sport body. I almost sent them an email.

Anyways:

"Another of Factory Five’s cars was the impetus for the evolution of the Type 65. The company’s halo car is the GTM, a uniquely styled mid-engine supercar. While the GTM makes up a small fraction of Factory Five’s sales, it brought more than its share of questions to the company’s tech line. Its involved assembly process and exotic transaxle wind up being outside the scope of many hot rodders. Factory Five owner Dave Smith told us, “The complexity of that mid-engine design is something we want to get away from.”

Don’t say goodbye to the GTM just yet—Factory Five told us it will live on as long as there’s demand for it. The Type 65 isn’t taking its place, either. This chassis that now underpins the Gen 3 Type 65 will be used in its next flagship supercar that hasn’t yet been unveiled. Obviously, a front-mid-engine design can be used to make incredibly capable track cars, and a low cub weight and the ability to put a power to the track are vital. This chassis should certainly have what it takes."

Probably not a GS replica, but for 20,000$ they'd sell a lot.

Nice quality video. Corvettes start around 29:00 if you don't like Camaros, mustangs, etc. I never realized vettes dominated in the mid to late 70's.

Hey, if anyone sees offensive material in any of these links flag it. I usually watch the entire clip but sometimes skip through slow spots. I found an interesting one today but at the end the camera man started saying some pretty offensive things, luckily I caught it before posting a link here.
