LIVONIA, Mich. – The January, 2009 issue of Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords takes on the arduous task of naming the Top-10 Mustangs of last year, and the editors determined that ROUSH 427R Mustang was worthy of sixth position on that list.
What makes this even more noteworthy is that the ROUSH 427R is the only factory-built Mustang on that Top-10 list. The remaining slots are filled with heavily-modified custom rides or purpose-built drag cars.
Of the 427R, the editors of Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords noted, “No matter who was driving or where we went, the car gathered more looks and comments than any other press car (or truck) we have received.” The fact that they were able to run 12.20s on the drag strip certainly helped.
The ROUSH 427R was featured on the cover of their May, 2008 issue, and you can read their full review here: ROUSH 427R-ocket (Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords)
