With the new Ford F-150 Lightning hitting the streets, the market is heating up for the originals. So it's great to find a first-year 1993 Ford F-150 SVT Lightning that has been given a custom style that fits right in with its era. So as you look over this performance pickup, you see the ideal mix of terrific preservation with a distinct style that really takes you back to when this first-ever Lightning was the new kid on the block.
When it comes to classics, we always look for the originals. When the SVT Lightning first showed up in 1993 less than 2,700 were done in the aggressive Raven Black. So this one already has rarity, but the paintwork gives this one singularity. It was sold new in Coon Rapids, Minnesota, and the city also happens to be home to LeRoy's Customs - a well-respected Midwest customizer. So this was given the proper 1990s street machine style with full custom side graphics with blue and a purple fade. It almost gives the look of the last moment of sunlight on a snowy Minnesota winter evening. It's an impressive style locked in with a glossy clearcoat. There's even an upgraded grille and running boards for added custom style. The finish and the panels have quite a well-respected appearance, and the odometer is even believed to represent the full mileage - averaging under 2k miles annually. Not only does this look sharp, but it also remains a practical pickup. There's a full bed liner and a hard-shell tonneau cover. So you have a more aerodynamic muscle truck and a well-finished cargo area. And there's even a proper trailer hitch rear.
The interior got a big upgrade over the standard F-150. After all, a sports truck needs sports seats, so these got exclusive buckets with cool Lightning stitching in the headrest. They have power-adjustable bolstering and plenty of leg support, so they can be grippy yet comfortable for all-day drives. It has a terrific look that reinforces the feeling of a well-respected custom truck. As a premium pickup, you also got all the best features. This includes power windows, power locks, cruise control, a sliding rear window, a cup holder center console, the factory AM/FM/cassette stereo, and cold-blowing air conditioning. The tilt steering column gives you a good view of the full set of gauges, and the 120 mph speedometer is a genuine reflection of how speedy this truck is.
The Lightning received a reworked version of Ford's fuel-injected 5.8-liter V8. The true secret to this 351W is the heads and intake are very similar to the GT-40 setup used on the Mustang Cobra. The 4.10 limited-slip rear end on these were built to give this truck power take-offs, but this fast Ford has a practical side, too. It's linked to a quick-shifting AOD four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. There's also power steering, power brakes, front discs, and wide modern tires on those SVT buzzsaw-like wheels. So it's really up to you to choose between mild or wild anytime you want.
The sale comes complete with the original window sticker, warranty card, and owner's manual packet. This is the first-year muscle pickup that has its own unique style. It makes for a true classic that is going to be a distinct standout everywhere it goes. Call today!!!
