They have two 2008 Roush "Street Boss" Mustangs. They take a base level GT,cloth seats,Bullitt type wheels and little else, add the Roush Supercharger,with 5 spd, and call it a day! No wild spoilers just a little Street Boss emblem on the rocker panel. List price ...$36,975. Of course,big discounting is going on now!
Something Ford could have offered as a factory Drag Pack!!

so how much over a base GT is that?

I am surprised Ford hasn't done something like that already themselves. With the Steed for every Need philosophy would make sense.

Sounds like a pretty good deal to me (Go Fast) without all the extra stuff, which I wouldn't want anyway. How much would It cost to have A dealer installed SC on base GT as compared to the ROUSH? I know A guy that works as A Ford mechanic, that keeps talking to me about doing It to my BULLITT. I think I will have to ask him that question.

I highly doubt you will get a new supercharged Roush at anything under 42k. Take the GT price, add another 8k+ for the sc and other items...I don`t think so. The dealers are hungry but cannot sell at a loss.

The model "Mus" noted above lists at a MSRP of $27,570. That leaves Jack with $9,305 to add a supercharger and a couple of badges. It seems doable based on what he gets for his supercharger. Below is from his web site

"For those willing to explore the wild side, the TVS2300 ROUSHcharger® is now sold separately allowing custom tuners to develop their own calibration which can push the horsepower anywhere from 510 to more than 700. This is the first time that ROUSH is offering specialty tuning firms the option of using their own calibrations and being creative with their tune on a ROUSHcharger®. This kit includes a cold air intake system, unique fuel rail with 52 lb.-hr. injectors, a dual 60 mm electronic throttle body, all hardware, brackets and instructions. With a one-year component warranty, this kit retails for $5,899 (part number 403994)"

I talked with a guy that works at the dealership,and it is the real deal. Plus since,it is a GT,it could qualify for all the discounting going on,if they REALLY want to move them!
No,I'm not selling off any of my herd for a new one. Retired...can't have any new car payments! I'll just keep "adjusting" the old Stangs for better performance!

Keep in mind I just picked up a Roush charger for around $5200, it calls for 8hrs of labor to install, but in my case I will be doing the install myself. In addition I will pay the addition $450 for the 2.57" pulley and Roush 427R upgrade tune to 435hp/400tq

Larry, is it an actual Roush model or something the dealership put together using the Roush Charger? I can't find anything on the Roush site of on the Net about them.
I believe they told me,it was a special run of cars made for them. Check it out at www.richmondford.com 2008 Roush Street Boss. list for 36,975

I like the idea of a dealer installed factory warranty covered supercharger. :) And really, for what you are getting the price isn't that bad IMHO.
Yea it's OK if they are up front by telling the customers that the dealership installed the Roushcharger, strips and wheels to a standard GT Mustang.

A lot of these mislead Joe's have shown up on the Roush forums and are pretty ****ed off about it, after they find out they don't have a Roush SN but were told by a salesmen that it was indeed a Roush Mustang...

Well,if I were in the market,for a new, hot, affordable Mustang, that Street Boss would be a good deal,Roush decal or not. Also looking back on some dealer specials,from the 60's-70's, they have proven to be somewhat collectible.
There was a Pontiac dealer,in Michigan I believe, that took base level 1970 Pontiac Tempest and had them built with the GTO HO 400 engine. These were bench seat models. They called them the Magnum 400 Pontiac. They built around 25 of them, aimed at the young buyers who couldn't afford the higher priced GTO,plus the insurance that went with it.

I'm ok with it if the dealer relabels/upgrades it and calls it there own special edition. But if the dealers wants to take advantage of the name Roush, they should represent them correctly by telling the consumer what they are buying- pieces of Roush. In fact the name "Street Boss" logo/emblem is used on some Roush pickups from 2004-2008 not Mustangs.

Here's an example of a conversation a friend of mine had at another dealer with the same type of rip off cars-

"I asked him several questions and the answers were kind of funny....
1.) Why does it have GT badging?
......ohhhhhh because that's the way ROUSH's come originally.
2.) If it's a 427 why does it only have the ROUSH hockey stick stripe on the side with "ROUSH' lettering only and doesn't actually say 427R?
......ohhhhhh because it's 427 cubic inch and 427 hp
3.) Where's the serialization numbers?
......ohhhhhh ROUSH's don't always come with that"

A quote from another board-
"I dont recall dealers building oodles of fake Saleens and trying to pass them off as the real thing" ;)
