Given that the 21st century has seen a sort of return to the roots aspect for the Mustang, it was probably only a matter of time before the Boss 302 made a return. Over the last few years there's been steady and growing interest in the concept of a new-age Trans Am Special.
Jim Clarke led the charge with the creation of the 5.0 HO V8 for the Mustang in 1982 and was responsible for the continuous improvement of the 5.0 throughout the '80s. What Jim and his team accomplished is truly amazing.
Classic Car Overview
This 2007 Ford Mustang ROUSH 427R is for sale in our Houston showroom. The 2007 Mustang was just an OK performer by today s standards. ROUSH however would change all that with the addition of the 427R. The 427 didn t strand for motor size but actual power to the rear wheels. This was over 115 more ponies over stock and would be the best performing 3 valve motor to date. Using his custom intercooled ROUS charger system and backed up by a custom ECM tune that works in conjunction with the different exhaust this Mustang has been turned it a raging stallion. Roush did not just stop there as they felt the car would have to look the part as well. A 4-piece body kit was added which included a stylized front fascia, front chin spoiler, hood scoop and rear wing. Parked between the shock towers is a Ford 4.6 Liter V8 engine that is topped with one of Jack Roush s favorite toys, a Roush supercharger that forces air in to the combustion chambers after it has passed through the air to air intercooler. Why an intercooler you ask? Well the easiest way to put this in prospective is that the cooler the air is the cooler the fuel will be. It is not unusual to net an 85 - 200 drop in intake air temperature (depending on application). Paired to a 5-speed manual transmission that shifts smooth & firm up & down through the gears with ease. The power plant combo makes for a very nice driving experience. Inside the cockpit the driver will immediately notice the addition of the new three-gauge dash pod with engine oil temperature, coolent temperature and a boost gauge. A shift light has also been integrated into this dash pod as well. The ROUSH sport leather seating, short throw shifter with retro-style ball, and four-piece performance pedal kit help to round out the interior styling. The suspension system has been completely revamped to easily manage the twists and turns of a road course. The ROUSH 427R Trak Pak suspension includes adjustable front and rear shocks, front and rear springs, front and rear stabilization bars, front and rear jounce bumpers and adjustable camber/caster plates. With only 39k miles on this car it is barely broken in with plenty of road life ahead of it. The body & paint on the car is in excellent condition and the car drives amazing. Interior is in like new condition and overall the car is in excellent condition with no negatives to mention.
