For sale in Gateway Classic Cars showroom in Houston, TX, youll find one fire-breathing Roush-built 2004 Ford Mustang Cobra. If the Ford Mustang Cobra was the top of the food chain in 2004, what do you suppose happens when you sent it to legendary Ford tuner Jack Roush for a total makeover? The result is this one-of-one Torch Red Roush Cobra coupe. Roush actually built 11 Cobra-based supercars in 2004, but this is the only Torch Red one, and is surely one of the lowest-mileage examples. The first thing Roush engineers did with the Cobra is give it a facelift, curing the biggest complaint of Cobra owners: it just didnt look unique enough. With Roush ground effects, side exhaust, a vented hood, special rear spoiler, and plenty of Roush badging, that problem was neatly cured. Its still recognizable as a Cobra, but nobody will think its stock anymore. The bright red paint is extremely nice and the Roush guys did an expert job of matching the new components to the OEM finish, so it all looks right. In the years since, it was beautifully maintained; and, given the low mileage, its quite unlikely that its ever been subjected to the rigors of the daily grind. The chin isnt bashed, the rockers havent been blasted by gravel, and theres a shine to the finish that only comes from hand-rubbed attention to detail. The special details, including a ROUSH badge on the deck lid, are subtle, but nobodys going to mistake this for anything else. With only 21,236 original miles (not a typo), and enough power to humiliate some seriously expensive hardware, this may very well be the ultimate hi-po Mustang. Fords 4.6-liter DOHC V8 was given a supercharger in the Cobra, and the result was performance to rival just about anything else on the road. Roush worked their magic to extract a lot more power without a comfort or reliability penalty, the result of doing Fords development work for decades. The supercharger is intercooled with an oversized holding tank up front and a special side-exit exhaust system sounds like the front stretch at Daytona. The suspension is heavily fortified for combat, with special springs, shocks, and sway bars which make a profound difference in handling without killing ride quality, and this Cobra sports an independent rear suspension, something the Mustang needed for decades. The Cobras binders were already immensely powerful, so they only got a brake pad upgrade, and as youd expect on this car, everything is pretty much as-new. Finally, polished alloy wheels were fitted and wrapped in fat 275/40/17 Michelin performance radials. The interior was already world-class right out of the Ford factory, so Roush pretty much left it alone. Its occupants are cradled in its original bucket seats, complete with their grippy suede inserts, which really help keep the occupants in place when the drivers winding it out in the twisties. White-faced gauges were a Cobra trademark from the early days, but a few well-chosen billet aluminum upgrades like the HVAC knobs and cruise control buttons on the steering wheel add some flash to the otherwise mundane interior. A special shifter for the T56 6-speed manual gearbox helps you find the right gear every time; but again, the change is subtle and a lot of folks might not even notice. All the power upgrades were standard, including windows, locks, A/C, cruise control, and a powerful stereo system; but you and I both know thats not why youre buying a Roush. Door panels, carpets, floor mats, headliner, and everything else inside is in excellent, as-new condition. Fully documented with factory books and manuals, this is an ultra-rare piece of performance history thats been immaculately preserved.
