ONE OWNER, 68K ACTUAL MILES, WINDOW STICKER, RARE COLOR, GARAGE KEPT, PRISTINE!
He who laughs last, laughs best. Everybody scoffed at the idea of a high-performance pickup truck Ford hit the scene in 1993 with the F-150 Lightning, but today this muscle truck is a true collectable. After all, with its numbers-matching high-performance 5.8-liter V8, great factory red paint, and a few nice custom touches, this is a highly desirable that will be leaving us quickly.
In this first year, you could only get the Lightning in black or red, and only around 2,500 were panted the Bright Red. This kind of rarity would make the factory paintwork amazing all on its own, but the odometer shows 68,005 original miles – an average of less than 3,000 per year. That low number feels right on this truck because the factory paint is still truly amazing. We know there was a lot of care that when into maintaining the pickup, and it defiantly had the priority spot in the garage. Ford dipped everything on the truck in the same fiery red, including the bumpers and grille, so its shine is a bit more devilish. Lightning badges and a subtle chin spoiler were the only real indicators that this was something special, which was just how the SVT guys liked it back in the day. You'll also notice on the included window sticker that the tubular rear bumper is actually a Ford factory option. For practicality's sake, this one does sport a drop-in bed liner as well as a hard-shell tonneau cover, effectively making for a 4-by-6 foot trunk.
The interior got a big upgrade over the standard F-150, starting with those comfortable cloth bucket seats. Grippy yet comfortable for all-day drives, they offer nice side bolstering to handle the corners. In between is a custom center console that contains speakers and lights that work in conjunction with the upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo. Purists will be happy to know the original console also comes with this truck and can fit back in without too much fuss. Just about every option on the F-150 was standard on the Lightning, including air conditioning, power windows, power locks, a full array of instruments, cruise control, and even a tilt steering column. This one also received the desirable sliding rear window. The speedometer reads to 120 and this truck will probably use most of that!
The Lightning received a reworked version of Ford's fuel-injected 5.8-liter V8, and the numbers-matching original powerplant still lives under the hood today. The true secret to this 351W are the heads and intake very similar to the GT-40 setup used on the Mustang Cobra. All the usual 5.0 bolt-ons work just as well here, but thankfully this very original pickup remains almost entirely stock – that intake manifold is still one of the most beautiful castings to ever come out of FoMoCo. It starts easily and runs surprisingly smoothly, with a bottomless well of torque that lets you spin the tires like a muscle car if you desire. Plus, the standard 4.10 rear end is truly nice for power take-offs. But this pickup also has a practical side, too. It's linked to a quick-shifting AOD four-speed automatic overdrive transmission, and there's also power steering, front disc brakes, ABS, and Goodyear Eagle GTII tires attached to the Lightning's special 17-inch alloy wheels. So it's really up to you to choose between mild or wild anytime you want.
