I know the 04 Mustangs were built at the Rouge plant. But where exactly was the SVT specific modifications done? Shelby's were sent elsewhere to be modified. Did SVT do their magic at the same facility as other Mustangs were built or did they leave the plant for some of the changes (suspension work etc.)? Just curious.

I belong to another car club <having to do with the Motor City and Terminators>.


We toured both the Romeo niche line and DAP. We were treated extremely well at Romeo - and everyone got to meet their engine builders.

The Terminators were built at DAP, mixed in with the V6's, GT's, and Mach 1's.

Hope that answers your questions.

Sorry to ask a noobish question, and "up" an old thread, but how can I tell what production # mine is?
My last 6 of the VIN are 221991. In this orange, there were 281 built I think. I'm not sure how to find out what it's build date, or what it's # was in Orange production. Thanks for any help :thumbsup:
