When it comes down to tuner Mustangs, no other name stands as tall as Jack Roush. The cars (and engines) bearing the legendary name represent the pinnacle of Blue Oval performance, something demonstrated in excellent form by this 2009 Ford Mustang Roush P-51B. Aeronautically themed and inspired by the hallowed North American Aviation P-51 Mustang fighter plane that owned the skies in WWII, there were only 51 of these limited editions '09 51-Bs ever made, and this one happens to be #51. With only 1,571 actual miles and offered with all of its original provenance, this dog fighter remains practically in as-delivered condition, ready to launch into battle with 510 horses under its nose.
The rather unusual Vapor Clearcoat Metallic finish is accentuated by a unique stripe and decal package that harkens back to the fighter jets of old, featuring a painted-on P51-B hood stripe and matching 510HP decals, 'Roushcharged' graphics on the flanks of the big hood scoop, a blacked-out tail-panel, and loads of super-cool P-51B and Roush badges found throughout. Not surprisingly, the body is reminiscent of the Roush 427R, but what sets it apart is the unique six-piece Aerobody Kit with highlights like the dual-colored Vapor front fascia, silver chin spoiler, silver hood scoop, silver rear wing, and Vapor rear quarter-window louvers. With such low mileage and coming out of such a well-known collection, the physical presentation is basically immaculate, showing no imperfections beyond a freckle-sized chip or two. The deeper Roush chin spoiler isn't mangled and scraped, the special hood scoop sits proudly atop the hood, and the rear wing fits so well that it's hard to believe it was installed in three pieces. As usual, the highest praise we can give a car is that it is like new, and this car, aside from some tinted windows presents the way it would have when the first owner unwrapped it on a very special day in 2009. Roush was always careful to select upgrades that were functional, not merely cosmetic, so the body add-ons add stability at high speeds as well as force-feeding cool air to the supercharged power plant living under the hood. Lower valance fog lights give the front end a very purposeful look and the rear spoiler adds downforce at speed, which is always welcome.
Inside you get special P51-B sports seating featuring black leather hides with suede inserts, along with a few special touches that were all part of Jack's dog-fighter Mustang. P-51 Embroidered sport seats are supportive and comfortable and it's easy to get comfortable behind that fat three-spoke steering wheel. Other upgrades include a custom short-shifter topped with a P-51 shifter ball, carbon fiber dash and center console appliques, white-faced gauges with Stage 3 callouts, Roush door sill plates, P-51 embroidered floor mats, as well as a couple of P-51 badges and the serialized #51 P51-B badge that are a big part of a limited edition's appeal. All the other Mustang features made the transition untouched, including cold A/C, power windows, locks, mirrors, and seats, cruise control, and a kickin' Shaker AM/FM/CD stereo. We dig Jack's dedication to making the car faster and it shows inside where there's no extraneous gear, just the stuff you need for the serious business of driving, and because the P-51B was always meant to drive like it was chasing the Luftwaffe, you get an extra boost gauge inlayed into one of the vent pods, and an ESCORT Passport radar/laser defense system installed in the center stack. The trunk is standard Mustang, so it's got plenty of room, and this car also carries the ultra-cool and very expensive custom Roush tool kit built into the trunk lid. You're going to love it!
Power comes primarily from that big honkin' supercharger sitting on top of Ford's 4.6 liter V8 engine. Called the "Roushcharger," it delivers enough boost to generate 510 horsepower and 510 pounds of torque. Custom tuning means it runs and drives just like a stocker and it's docile enough that your grandmother could drive it every day and not know the monster that lives within. Other goodies include a full Stage 3 suspension with a wheel hop reduction kit, a custom Roush exhaust that sounds magnificent, and a few under-hood dress-up items, not the least of which is the blacked-out supercharger case and oversized cone air filter. There's another bespoke P-51B badge under the hood that shows off the car's rarity, and as you might expect it's all dressed up for show. Along with the sporty suspension it's got the brakes to keep it under control too, with 14-inch 2-piece slotted rotors and 6-piston calipers up front and custom slotted rear rotors. Roush also provides a set of black chrome wheels that look nasty and are shod with sticky Michelin 275/40/18 rubber that keeps it planted to the ground.
Fully documented, this is #51 out of 51 total 2009 P51-Bs ever built. Ultra-rare and ready to
