FOR SALE: 2005 Ford Mustang
Antique/Classic / Charlotte, North Carolina
When your Mustang looks like this, it had better have the hardware to back it up. Fortunately, the guys at Roush knew what they were doing when this 2005 Roush GT went together. #05-706 offers a unique, high-performance look backed by an upgraded powerplant, so there\'s no question that this pony not only talks the talk, but definitely walks the walk. The retro-look Mustang is a great-looking car, no doubt about that, but for some folks, it lacks the right attitude. Jack Roush and his guys correct that particular issue with a great-looking body kit that\'s also functional. It includes a deep front chin spoiler, block-off panels for the quarter windows, custom rear bumper, and a longer-flatter wing atop the deck lid. Of course a set of white stripes atop the Sonic Blue paint helps with the race-ready attitude and the paint shop up at Roush does a great job of making everything match and look like it came from the factory. This car has led a good life, so it remains in very good shape with only a few minor signs of use and age, and you know that someone spent a lot of Saturday afternoons polishing it up for shows. The fog lamps in the grille are a Shelby design cue that works especially well here and it proudly wears its Roush-assigned serial number on the front bumper, letting everyone know this isn\'t a garden-variety Mustang with a body kit, but a pedigreed car with legitimate history. Upgrading the interior doesn\'t make a car go faster, so the Roush guys pretty much left it as the factory built it. But that\'s good news, because the gray leather seats are comfortable, the A/C is effective, and the retro-inspired design works extremely well with the Roush attitude. Carbon fiber adorns the dash and center console and yes, that\'s Jack Roush\'s signature on the passenger\'s side airbag cover, giving this car some genuine pedigree. An A-pillar pod with aftermarket white-faced gauges puts additional information in your line-of-sight, while the factory gauges are treated to matching white faces for a different look. Everything you could get on a stock GT is here, including power windows and locks, cruise control, a tilt wheel, and a powerful AM/FM/CD stereo system with iPod capability. It\'s all in excellent shape, much like the bodywork, with minimal signs of use and a very complete look that says this car was loved. Even the trunk looks new. The biggest upgrade is under the hood, where Ford\'s 4.6-liter V8 is augmented with a number of performance-enhancing tricks, including Ford Racing camshafts, shorty headers, a custom ECM calibration, and an off-road H-pipe that makes a huge difference all by itself. The engine components include trick composite valve covers and a color-matched intake that rests comfortably under a chrome shock tower brace. The Mustang\'s standard 5-speed gearbox is a joy to row through the gears and there\'s enough gear out back to get it rolling in a hurry without being tiring on the highway. Eibach springs and shocks lower the ride height about two inches and it rolls on 2014 Mustang wheels with 18-inch performance rubber. Owned by an ASE certified mechanic, this fully documented Roush offers huge bang for the buck with V8 performance that\'s still relevant today. Call now!
