This 1999 Ford F-150 Lightning SVT represents a one-owner, low-mileage, and exceptionally well-cared for example, of the first year for the supercharged Lightning. So as you look at the details, you see a great modern classic that has been treated as a collectable since day one.
Averaging less than 1,300 miles annually means this one only left the garage for special occasions. It also means you get an exceptionally well-preserved example, right down to the Oxford White paint. It's a proper shining finish, even in the truck bed. And while this one looks like it never went on a Home Depot run, there is a proper trailer hitch w/wiring plug to pull real truck duty. But really, we know you don't want this one because it hauls asphalt. The single cab with stepside bed makes this the sports car of the truck world. The Lightning even comes with exclusive cool features like color-matched sport bumpers, a special body kit, integrated fog lights, blackout honeycomb grille, a lowered stance, side exhaust, and special 18-inch SVT alloys. It's a total package that all comes together to make this the shining white knight of the performance truck world.
This truck was a specialty product of Ford's Special Vehicle Team (SVT) and the plaque on the dash instantly reminds you. And the well-kept condition is another reminder of how low the mileage is. The interior got a big upgrade over the standard F-150, and it starts with the special seats. These are individual bucket-style with cool black leather inserts and SVT logos embossed in the back. Yours even power adjusts to the ideal driving position. And whenever you need to carry a third person, the center armrest folds up for the handy jump seat. This is loaded with all the best features, like air conditioning, power windows, power locks, cruise control, tilt steering column, dual airbags, factory AM/FM/cassette stereo, and the desirable sliding rear window. The white-faced SVT gauge package has a speedometer that reads to 140 mph, and Ford even got more than that out on its test track!
Under the hood is the fuel-injected 5.4-liter V8. And you'll notice this has something on top: an Eaton supercharger. This is what made the Lightnings so lightning-quick, and this is believed to be the full original setup. This full package is rated at 360 horsepower right from the factory. It's the numbers-matching powerplant, and the looks crisp, clean, and original, right down to the decals. In fact, the only upgrade you'll spot is the Airaid cold air intake, which allows this mighty motor to inhale even deeper. Ford properly supported the upgrade to the lightning-fast Lightning correctly with features like an aluminum driveshaft, a limited-slip rear end with 3.55 gears, and a heavy duty four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive. Plus, power steering, grippy Nitto Extreme ZR tires, and four-wheel disc brakes w/ABS make driving both fun and effortless.
Complete with title documentation, this comes from the first and one of the lowest production years of its generation (the full package is believed to be 1 of less than 870.) So you have a one-owner well-respected truck that has rarity and power. It makes for an unbeatable collectable you need to get your hands on right now. Call today!!!
