Default 2006 Mustang Foose question

Hello All! I am new to the site and a proud owner of a 2007 Mustang Coupe. I recently found a 2006 Mustang Foose Convertible for sale and fell in love. Before I buy, is there anything I should know about these cars? All I know is what a regular GT Convertible sells for. How much more is a FOOSE design worth?? Also, is it possible it is a "knock off" Foose? Is there a way I can tell? Any help would be greatly appreciated as I do NOT want to make a mistake and overpay for something that isn't worth a lot more. Lastly, is there any specs to be found on the 2006 Foose convertible? What makes it special other than the wheels, stripes, etc.? How many did they make? Thank you SO MUCH for any help you can provide!

MyLocalDJ has had a couple of them. I'm sure he'll chime in with the specifics. Welcome to AFM!

Hello again Coppamilano... for the Foose, from the information that has been supplied to me - there were 55 Foose Stallions built in 2006 and 221 for 2007. Any that claim to be 2008 models supposedly are not recognized by Foose Design because they are post severance of the license agreement between Foose Design and Unique Performance (if there are any).

For all Foose Stallions, you should have a Foose Design nameplate under the hood on the passenger side strut tower that has a unique Foose ID (Build) number and the VIN number of your car. There should also be a Foose Design owner's manual binder that has a metal nameplate on the cover that matches the serial number of the car and the Foose Design Build number. You can also go to my personal website (myfoose.com) www.myfoose.com and see some of the other Foose cars and a little info about them. My site is not a commercial site, it is my personal website for the Foose mustang owners.

With respect to what you get for the Foose name, you basically get the FRPP tuned racing suspension, FRPP tuned exhaust, upgraded Foose interior which includes the Foose gauge overlay, signed dash, Foose logo in the front seat, Foose logo front floor mats, Foose sill plates, Foose wheels, upgraded 14" brakes on the front, I think 13" rear, coupe has a louvre on the quarter panel windows, and some have the FRPP CAI and tune. I know a very few had a supercharger. Plus obviously the body kit, hood, and special Dupont Hot Hues paint.

Some would say the Foose is overpriced for what you get, but honestly, I like the fact that there are so few of them and I was willing to pay the price. I have bought two this past year and am glad I did in both cases.

The downside? These cars are unique and sometimes when you need to buy a replacement part or want an aftermarket dress up part, the parts do not fit the Foose. This is a minimal issue but I have run into it with the headlight bulbs and with trying to purchase custom radiator support covers since the front end is slightly different. The drivetrain is factory from everything that I can tell so there should not be any issues there. I have also found a source for most all of the parts if you need something.

What I can also tell you is that when my first 2007 Foose bit the dust, the insurance company had a very difficult time trying to evaluate the price since there are so few of these cars. If you buy one of these, do not just insure the car as a GT, make sure you provide them with copies of all of the paperwork and window stickers if possible at the time you insure the car. That worked for me and proved to save a lot of headaches.

The below was posted on another forum and may help give you an idea on value at least from one dealer's perspective.
"Have a new 2007 Foose Stallion conv . Red/Black 50/50 paint with crimson interior and anthracite 20" Foose premium alloys. Original MSRP: $55,641, will sell for $39,950 +fees and transport. Car is absolutely stunning , a real looker with the unmistakeable Foose seamless design.

I hope I was able to answer some of your questions. If you need anything else, drop me a note back and I will try my best to answer.

By the way, if you go to my website on the "Links" page, I have the Foose Design Product Brochure posted. I tried to upload it here but the file size was too large. :: My Homepage ::

For what its worth. I remember seeing an FOOSE/Unique Performance ad in one of my magazines a few years ago. It was advertising the Stallion itself, but also listed off a number of dealerships that could convert your GT into Stallions with kits. I remember the ad well because it was when I first realized that Unique Performance was just down the road from where I lived.

That is probably true. Unique Performance was licensed by Foose Design to build the Foose Stallion. The Stallions that were available through the dealerships were typically new mustangs supplied by Ford to Unique Performance where they did the transformation and distributed through the dealers. This type of arrangement is typical for most specialty cars. My latest Foose started its life as a 2007 Black GT and was transformed by Unique Performance in Dec 2006 to the one you see in my pictures wrapped in the Hot Hues Cinammon. That is one of the reasons the name plate is so important. It ties the traceability of the original Ford VIN to the Foose Design build number (both numbers are on each tag).

You can figure a base price of about $13K plus for the addition of a Foose Design package on top of the price of the GT. Here is a photo of one of my Foose window stickers. It lists the mods from Foose with the addition of several Foose Options bringing the Foose package alone to almost $20K. Then I had the dealer add about another $13K in my personal performance mods before I took delivery. Things add up quickly.

Do you ever have problems with replacement parts and such? I know there was a news story about employees of Unique not getting paid. Sounds like it'd be a headache if you needed something from them.

Unique Performance obviously is no longer in business and was only the licensed agent for getting the build completed and distributing the cars back to the dealers for sale. My understanding is that they did not actually do the build. If you watch Overhaulin' you know who probably built the cars.

Anyway, I did track down the builder and was referred to a supplier that does have most of the parts. Whether just by chance or by design, the company did not respond to a number of inquiries for parts until I finally sent evidence that I was an owner. Personally, I liked that after I thought about it for a while. It helps preserve the value. Who knows, they may change their stance tomorrow... With that said, if someone is thinking of cloning, please do not ask me to provide supplier information. I will not make it easy and I will ask you for a photo of your ID plate; otherwise, I will help any way that I can. I have already had inquiries since the earlier post today.

What makes it special is the name "Foose". Chip Foose has his own design company and he is rather famous for such designs. If Ima not mistaken there should be some type of certificate of authetentacy witht he car if is a real Foose Design.

From what I have seen of the Foose car, most of them go for $48K-$54K.....you ar emostly paying for a unique cosmetic dsign and the Foose name. Some of the Foose car may have either a supercharger or aprocharger (usually Foose's choice).

If you get, please do post a few pics. By theway, welcoem to AFM, glad to hav eyo here.


I must admit, I do so love those beautiful Foose Stangs. Originally, the stripes on my car were going to be Foose stripes (or slightly modifed Foose stripes). I may have to look for a Foose convertible to go with my current toy.

There is no certificate of authenticity per se. There is a metal nameplate on the nylon binder for the Owner's Manual that has both the car VIN and the Foose build number. I guess you could call this a certificate. There is also a matching nameplate on the passenger strut tower with the same information. The same information is also on the window sticker from Unique Performance. See earlier post with image of sticker. This also lists both ID numbers.

Drove by a dealership here in utah and saw a red foose 2007 mustang. asking price was 24900.00 i know this post is kind of old but i figured i ask it here since pricing was discussed. have the foose mustangs held there value.

haven't looked at it with a salesman but they told me on the phone it was a model with the optional superchager. not a real huge mustang but i really like the way this car looks. is this a good deal at this price. it only has 16000.00 miles, all 4 wheels have curb rash and teh front bumper looks like it has scraped a curb a couple times.


thanks

I think they are overpriced. But some people like to have what some would consider a rare car.

Hello all. I have just recently purchased a 2007 Foose. I do love the car but it has some things missing and I can't seem to find replacements.

Victor - I would love to be able to e-mail you about the Foose's as you seem to have more knowledge than anyone I've met on any other forums. I tried e-mailing you through your website but it was returned. Hope you are still around.
