Hello All,

Well I have still been working on a registry for all the 2005 Roush Mustangs and it is very far along. I figured out that the last production date for forklift holes was May 12, 2005. The "production start date" is different from the "completion date". Sometimes they are weeks apart. The completion date is basically the born on date, and the production start date is the date the order was put together.
Seems they switched over on May 12th as there are some cars with and some without holes even though they shared the same production date.
What is the use of the forklift hole?
According to roush it was used in the wind tunnel development to eliminate pressure from the rear panel. So it is an aero thing.
So how many cars have them and how many don't? Well about 1170 cars have them, out of about 2060. I'm still figuring it out as there are mustangs from 1 to 2248 but roush numbered all cars in order so you have to weed out the F-150s and such. Plus there were two 2005 cars using the 2004 numbering I believe (9991 and 9990) so it's kind of messy. Then there was a car sent to Dale Jarrett Ford which does not have a build (serial) number, so it's not an exact science.
Go to the roush website and type in "VIN search" and you can see your car's info.
I still own my 2005 sonic blue roush (16k miles).

Hey everyone! Really late to the party! I was researching the forklift holes as I want to know specifically how many 05 Roush Sport’s were made with them (car was black with silver stripes, manual, black on black interior) , and came across this site / forum / thread. I can / will get my car details when I get home (vin, etc), but wanted to post up and see if this “registry” is still being updated or not?

Oh - here is my truly unique, 1 of 1....2005 Roush Sport.

Hi , im new to the site but in 2004 my wife and I ordered a 05 Roush car from Dale Jarrett. Im kinda stumped. When we ordered the vehicle we were told that Roush was not ready for the 05 (new body style ect) and stages were not available. We were given a couple catalogs and told to pick out the options that we wanted on the car. Now here is the question, when the car arrived, it was I assume considered a Sport but equipped with about everything but a supercharger. It is one of only a hand fully built in 5,6&,7 that were Redfire Met w/ cream leather interior w/ an automatic.It has custom 20 in wheels and 20 in tires/ lower and handling package/ the R pedals/R floor mats/ tool kit/carbon fiber trim inside/ windshield strip/ does not have the slotted rear valence/window vent covers/R white signed gauges/all Roush emblems & body kit/ misc. chrome under the hood/ R air intake & box/ they even let me order a different hood that they said was from Ford that I know Roush didn't offer and all this from the factory/dealership. I really don't know if this vehicle would be considered a true Sport or should be listed as a Stage car. We ordered the car in late 04 and in very early 05 took delivery . At the time Dale Jarrett had some Roushes on the lot but all were sticks.----Last 6 digits of ser.# 197921. Did this happen very often? We still have the vehicle with about 2000 miles on it. Thanks

Pics? It sounds like the dealership sold you a bunch or add-ons vs. any particular package.

The other thought tat comes to mind:

At the time we bought the vehicle the dealership told us the packages were not confirmed yet. They gave us a Roush catalog and Steeda catalog. We have Steeda wheels and tires / Steeda Hood/ and some misc Steeda chrome-- all was installed on vehicle w/ warranty when we picked it up ??I can post pics later, I don't have any with me. Its a beautiful car. I thought it might be the one talked about from Dale Jarrett ford . it is a #ed roush car. Thanks

Hello all! I have an 05’ Roush Stage 1 with the forklift holes in the rear bumper. It’s the Silver/Black stripe with black on black interior. It had been modified some when I bought it with headers and exhaust. It’s in pretty good condition and I’d give it a 7/10. It’s a beautiful car and it sounds great but, I wish it had a little more bite off the line. 3rd and 4th gear is where I’m getting all my power. I also think it needs a sway bar. Any suggestions on either of those would be appreciated!

Hi all,
I used to be jack1.1 but since I have been gone for a year I guess they wiped out my account here at stangnet. No biggie as I’m back as jack1.2. Anyway, about the Roush forklift holes and to respond to some of the earlier posts.
First, the Roush VIN search at the Roush performance website stinks. They took it down for about a year and just put it back up. However, now it tells you nothing but a vague color and that your car is a Roush. What do I mean by a vague color? I mean I run my car and it comes back “blue”. Which blue? Is it windveil blue or sonic blue? Does not say. So the VIN search now is basically useless as it provides no information. Sorry to vent, but it is totally useless now. It doesn’t even tell you what stage your car is, production date, Roush serial number, nothing. It used to, I guess that stuff is secret information now.
I got some of the info though from before to help figure out my forklift registry so unless you know someone at Roush with the keys to the database your not going to find any info on the Roush mustangs.

As for the guy above “Big R”, I can tell you your car is a sport, or at least was born as a sport, and your production date was 5/31/05. It is a G2 automatic which is redfire.
As for Kristopher above I would say a new LCA will get you traction in the rear. I replaced my stock ones with GT500 LCAs and the car totally settled down in the back. I’m sure any aftermarket ones will stiffen up the bushings in your LCAs and that will work, mine did big time. So my advice is to replace your LCAs.

Returning to the registry, like I mention in earlier posts (under my old name jack1.1), I have been working on it for years, i have VIN numbers and many of the corresponding Roush serial numbers. I have 2058 VIN numbers for 2005 cars and corresponding Roush serial numbers for just over half of them. So I can probably tell you quite a bit about your car, especially if it’s a forklift car. The later, 2005 cars (like mine, a non-forklift, later 2005) I didn’t concentrate as much on.

So unless Roush fixes the VIN search database the info will not get out there.

Some of the info you used to be able to find out from the VIN search was:
Build date, model (stage 1,2, sport), VIN, interior color, transmission, exterior color code, production date, if it had the Roush leather interior or not, Roush stripes or not, selling dealer name and location.

Fun fact, I have never seen a convertible with fork lift holes. They don’t exist.

Fun fact there are a handful of 2005 “RPP demo” cars out there, those are Roush performance demo cars which are factory cars for executives, press cars, experimental, whatever, they are Roush factory engineering cars. #483 is a sonic blue one, #1155 is another one, so is #1150, I think #1237 is one, etc.....

Hello I know I’m about 12 years late on this thread but if you are still collecting
I have a 05 Roush Sport with the Forklift holes.#05-0779
Black (no stripes)
Cloth interior
White short throw shifter
Pretty much the cheapest Roush you could get in 05
1.I am wondering if there is any productions number? Wanting to know how many are out there like mine. There was a site a few years ago but I just cannot find it
2. Is there anyway to order a replacement rear bumper with the forklift holes? I drive in heavy traffic everyday and it’s very scaring looking in the mirror seeing someone slamming on the breaks lol

I hope you see this
-Jesse

Saw people were still posting so thought I would include my car. 2005 Roush Sport, Convertible, Redfire Metallic, 83,000 mi, normal non-roush interior, has Roush chrome wheels (I believe were ordered after first got car). Has gauges, carbon fiber interior, hoodscoop. No forklift holes on back. Pretty standard sport with a lot of aftermarket Roush upgrades. Car is in pretty good condition other than the crappy chrome pitting on the Roush wheels, I would give it an 8.5/10. Serial Number 05-1908. Any other questions you can ask! Thanks

Not the expert, but using the Roush Website Vin Lookup looks like it is a real Roush, but only a sport and says the stripe color is white...

Okay it’s a lil confusing because, it’s so damn hard finding information on my car because it’s a roush it’s a blessing and a curse lol
Read what’s underneath the vin search , it’s say “may not match the vehicle that you searched for” it’s so strange because my car is black with red stripes not white . I’m not the original owner so idk all the changes but was told it was a stage 1 guess he was wrong .

So I am lucky enough to have come by a 2005 Roush promo card that explains all the options, but if anyone sees that I am incorrect on something feel free to correct me! The sport has the standard body kit (spoiler, front bumper, real valance and rocker panels), the exhaust, badges and banner. The stage 1 has everything the sport has, plus the decklid emblem on the trunk lid that says stage 1, unlike yours that is just the standard GT. The stage 1 also is said to include the 18in Roush rims and not the stock 05 gt rims. The stage 2 then has everything the stage 1 does and the upgraded suspension.

Here is my source:

There's a Roush 2005 Mustang for sale near me. Roush S/N is 05-2179. Site says it is a stage 1. Can you tell me what might have been done to the car? The rear bumper does not have holes, but I can see the tail pipes are not standard Ford GT pipes.

Some cars did not have the forklift holes in the back if they were later 05. Judging by the number, I believe it makes sense that this car would not have the forklift holes. Maybe someone did some aftermarket exhaust? Is it still the square tip exhaust or something different?
