Roush Brand Celebrates 40th Anniversary At World’s Largest All-Ford Event

RoushPerformance-logoROUSH Performance will kick off the 40th anniversary of the Roush brand at the Carlisle Ford Nationals June 3-5, in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. For the first time, ROUSH will be featured in the event’s Building T, with a special display of six ROUSH vehicles from the Roush Automotive Collection Museum, coordinated in partnership with ROUSH Road Crew members.

“With almost 3,000 vehicles on site, Carlisle Ford Nationals is the place for Ford enthusiasts to see some of the most exciting vehicles ever produced,” said Mike Rey, ROUSH Performance marketing manager. “We’ll be displaying six vehicles that will show the range of ROUSH’s capabilities from the 1970s into the present. It’s the perfect venue to celebrate our 40th anniversary with Ford’s biggest fans.”

The following ROUSH vehicles are slated to be on display in Building T throughout the weekend:

• 1969 Gapp & Roush Mustang Convertible Super Stock. Purchased by Jack Roush in 1971, this vehicle showcases Gapp & Roush’s parts and tuning business.

• 1994 ROUSH Performance Mustang Prototype 1. Roush Industries prepared this Mustang to demonstrate the company’s capabilities to Ford Special Vehicle Operations. Modifications include a 5.8L V8, stiffened suspension and custom cowl induction hood.

• 2005 Roush Propane-Powered Mustang. A three-time NMRA Modular Muscle champion, Donnie Bowles’ Mustang features a propane autogas-fueled 5.4L V8, bored and stroked to 324 cubic inches of displacement, making more than 750HP.

• 2008 ROUSH Performance P-51A. This very limited edition Mustang, owned by Jack Roush, features a three-valve 4.6L Roush V8 producing 510HP and 510 lb-ft. of torque and exterior paint that mimics its World War II fighter namesake.
