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
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
