Well compared to the regular model focus, yes they are rare...I want to say they could be optioned out around $20k new in 2005 where as a base model was closer to 14-15k. So that deterred some folks from getting them, 20k for a focus in 2005 was expensive for what they were


How far are you willing to travel? This one is about 100 miles from you

Nope, looks like 14,003 SVTs and 14,464 STs. Pretty close though!

I think I see more STs for sale than SVTs, which would make sense since they're newer and there are likely to be more still on the road.

Here's the only two I could find within 200 miles of Quincy:

While helping my son look for a car, I saw a number of them for sale last summer in the Chicago area. All very low mileage. I'm guessing they were what dealers call "lot queens" - they sat forever on the lot because they are manual transmission only. They were a little pricey for a student/first car but would otherwise be an awesome pick for a fun used car.

And yes they were expensive when new. During that time Ford had numerous fire sales on Taurus' so you could buy a loaded mid line Taurus for less money. And nobody wanted a car with a stick.

I've had my 2005 ST for 8 years. I love this car to death. But at 157,000 miles it is time to move on. the only thing beyond normal maintenace was one alternator replacement. It is a FUN car that is comfortable and quick. My 2013 focus ST will no doubt put my old car to shame and I will love the new one more... but I will always miss my 2005 ST.

I live in a tiny little town, and there are 4 here. 3 with SAP. Ha. And I know each of the owners. Probably a total of 7 or 8 seen total though throughout my focus years.

In the two years I have owned my 05,I have only seen ONE st,and none for sale. How rare was this car anyhow? I have looked at every focus sitting a parking lot,driving down the road,etc and only saw one in two years? Maybe it is just m area that doesn't have very many of them.
That'd be a great move= a 23 w/ 5spd, rear disc brakes to start. They only came in 4 colors= blk, charcoal, silver & red. The '05's had trac/ control & a 6 disc cd player standard. The '05's can use the earlier suspesion kits= a lot more choices. The '06-'07's had the t/c & 6 disc cd player as an option. You can get the sap pkg 1&2 as an option. The '05's came out in the middle of '04 hence the longer production run. I looked at svt's when I bought my st. Don't forget 'bout shipping also.
