2007 Ford Roush Mustang
Roush Enterprises is the parent company for Roush Racing as well as Roush Industries, a freelance engineering firm; Roush Performance, an automotive aftermarket development company; and ROUSH CleanTech, a manufacturer of propane autogas fuel systems, all headquartered in Livonia, Michigan and owned by Jack Roush. His companies employ more than 2,000 people throughout North America and Europe. Rarely seen without his trademark Panama hat, Roush is known on the NASCAR circuit as "The Cat in the Hat".
For consignment a 2007 version of the collaboration between Jack Roush Enterprises (which includes racing team, engineering firm, and performance parts manufacturer) and Ford Motor Company in particular the Mustang. This car is #7 of a mere 308 produced. With a supercharged (“Roushcharged”) mill, and racing suspension this car came to us via a Celebrity collection with very low original miles (3,535) and is ready for the track. Go Speed Racer, GO!
Very deep Black paint with little to no faults are seen on this laser straight paneled car which minds its gaps better than a grandchild minds its manners at Christmas dinner at their grandma's house. Silver Roush decals are attached at key areas that deserve highlighting. These include the middle of the scooped hood which runs from the grille to the windscreen and a front quarter down stripe that becomes a horizontal spear at the hockey stick cove on the door and is labeled 427R. As a throwback tribute to the fastback Mustangs of yore, a triangular louvered panel mimics the roofline of the fastback on this newer model. A low angle spoiler is atop the rear deck, and 18-inch polished Roush wheels are on all 4 corners. A wonderful exterior concerto ending in a crescendo of dual vertical triple brake lights and dual chromed exhaust tips.
A veritable gray scale of tones works together to complete the monochromatic artwork we will call the passenger compartment. A tasteful mixture of various tactile materials from vinyl to leather, plastic to cloth, and chrome to electronics starting in the form of 2 front buckets in light gray and medium gray. These power seats up front are backed by a similar 2+2 high back bucket/bench. Also noted on the upper back panel of the front buckets is an embroidered Jack Roush signature in white stitching. A center console houses the Roush shifter and a storage compartment. The instrument cluster complete with white faced round deep set gauges and green LCD readouts on the ODO and radio, plays the high tech card early on in the high tech game. Clean black carpet is reserved for the floors, and a tight headliner is seen above the menagerie.
The money shot if you will, a flip of the hood and we shake hands with a 4.6 liter Roushcharged V8. It has fuel injection and a supercharger atop and a Tremec 3650 5-speed manual transmission on the rear. Way back is a Ford 8.8-inch 3.55 rear axle. This powerful V8 puts out a respectable 435 horses, plenty to make you a formidable opponent.
Obviously, this car was trailered most of its life as there is nary a drip underneath this vehicle. All components are shiny and bright including the suspension which is racing ready in the form of independent coil springs up front, and 3 link with panhard bar on the rear. Power disc brakes are all around. Just to emphasize the low mileage, a factory sticker still adorns the rear axle. Showroom kids, think showroom.
Anytime we have such a low mileage car we tend not to drive it very much if at all, and with this car we can tell you it started right up, sounded great, and we turned it back off. You can read all the stats you want online if you are interested.
A collectible investment grade car with super low miles, all original and ready for the track or street. Jack Roush is known for his attention to detail and has won several NASCAR titles with his teams, and this certainly carried over on this collaboration which is right here NOW at Classic Auto Mall. Christmas is coming!!
