2001 Ford Mustang Roush Stage III Convertible

If you are a motorsports fan, you recognize Jack Roush because of his racing teams-and because of his trademark straw hat. He's "the cat in the hat," as Benny Parsons puts it, the cat whose cars dominated the SCCA's Trans-Am series and claimed 10 consecutive class victories in the 24 Hours of Daytona. But where Roush's name really has gained national prominence is in NASCAR's Winston Cup series, with Mark Martin and Jeff Burton winning nearly 50 races in Roush-prepared Fords.

For consignment, a Stage 3 Roush Mustang in near excellent condition. This car is serial number 01-0138 and is still sporting the original badges, nice paint, a clean black top, and overall, in near showroom condition, this car has been well taken care of throughout its life. Showing only 29,645 original garage kept miles, this 2001 high performance pony has lots of life to offer a new owner.

Exterior
Showing in very nice menacing black, the exterior of this car is nearly spotless. With its ground effects package, rear spoiler, and cowlings, it sits low to the ground and looks fab! Lots of Roush signature badges adorn the car over the black. Throaty side exhaust exits are molded into the rocker cowling. A long hood starts out at the top of the billet grille insert and leads back to a faux reverse heat extractor scoop then onto the swept back windshield. Doors with well minded gaps have another earlier cue in the hockey stick cove which is in the beginnings of the rear quarter on this model. On the back is a small but effective spoiler, and a now integrated curved trio of rear taillights, (think 1964-1/2!), with a large rear neoprene bumper and a large MUSTANG embossment finishes off the back. Up top is a black power actuated canvas convertible top with a defroster equipped glass rear window. 18" chrome Roush 5 spoke wheels are on all 4 corners and are wrapped in Michelin blackwall rubber.

Interior
A mixture of Charcoal Black color plastic and vinyl combine and utilize their curved integration in the door panels and the power window/lock/mirror switches reside in a smooth black panel. This carries over to the dash which has 2 curved eyebrows that swoop downward in the center and form the radio/climate control/ and gearshift cluster. The driver's instrument cluster has white faced gauges, and these are placed in a black background. These swoops utilize the same charcoal black materials as the door panels and create a beautiful interior. Buckets showing slight wear, are in black leather, and have a red horizontal stripe across the upper portion of the setback just for some visual fun. A 2 plus 2 rear seat is in the back and appears to never have been sat in. Meanwhile, a light bar has been added just behind the front buckets and emulates a roll bar. Near perfect carpet floods the floor and has nicely embroidered Roush floor mats to protect the carpet.

Drivetrain
A 4.6 Liter SOHC V8 is seen in a very clean engine bay. It is topped with a supercharger, Roushcharger for those in the know, and with the help of EFI and is capable of making 360hp. No dirt or corrosion here as it looks much like the day it was driven out of the showroom. The factory black plastic cam covers are on, as is the original air intake. Bolted to the back of this potent mill is a Tremec 3650 5-speed manual transmission and weighing in at the tail end is a Ford 8.8 rear axle with a 3.27 Tracloc gearing.

Undercarriage
As part of the Stage 3 Mustang package, handling is provided by independent coil spring front suspension, and a 4-link rear suspension which is easily discernible as many of the parts are light blue. Larger power disc brakes are found, and you can see nice red emblazoned Roush calipers through the shiny front wheels. Manifolds feed down from the engine and send spent fumes out the sides of the car via a pair of Magnaflow mufflers.

Drive-Ability
This racer fired right up and on the test track performed beautifully. Acceleration was limitless, handling was akin to Tommy Kendall's 11-time winning Roush prepared Trans-Am racer and braking was more than adequate even during our panic stop test. All in all, a great driver and performer and with the side exhaust you really become one with the car, especially in the high RPM's. This only issue that crept up was the AC was blowing warm, but who needs AC when the top goes down with the push of a button.

One of the best kept secrets of its time, a supercharged Mustang with Roush performance backing, very well cared for example, with very nice paint, correct Roush badging, and all its aero cowlings. This car was treated like a favorite toy, played with then put securely away for the next time. All in great condition, very clean, and ready to perform, turning heads and providing smiles on the faces of the new owners.
