A 1999 Ford F-150 Lightning SVT with its supercharged V8 is already exciting, but you can tell there's much more going on here. It's a thoughtfully done full custom build that has fully modified the body, an award-worthy engine bay, an adjustable air ride suspension, and delivers the best in comfort. So if you were looking to attend some major car shows, you need this low-mileage custom truck.
This was the first year for the supercharged Lightning. Ford tried their best to get the F-150 to look like a sports car, but it didn't have the no-expense-spared budget like this build. There was a major investment in the body with a chopped and raked roofline, a custom rear window enclosure, and the bed was lengthened to fill in the gap with the cab. Deleted door handles, a flush-mounted third brake light, Lexus side mirrors, and color-matched tonneau add to the sleekness. Plus, you're going to want to take time looking at the rear. The tailgate was seamlessly molded into the bed, the bumper was fully integrated, and now the gas cap is hidden behind the tail light. This is a very thoughtful and unique truck. But since this was the inaugural year for a significant SVT, the total package never tries to lose that classic Lightning spirit. The exclusive front bumper, billet grille, side exhaust tips, polished SVT, and other details retain a stock style. Even the correct Vermilion Red paint was retained over any customization. But the way the adjustable air ride suspension lets you dial-in an awesome stance that makes sure no one will ever mistake this one for a stock hauler.
The remote door openers show off the cool suicide doors. It's your gateway to a special interior. The ultra-low original mileage on the odometer may not seem to matter as much outside because it's such a custom creation, but when you get inside, you can really see the difference. Some vehicles get more than 3,600 miles on the odometer in the first few months, and so this custom classic has a factory-fresh style inside. So you see the awesome detailing in the bucket-style seats with black leather inserts and SVT logos embossed in the back. And whenever you need to carry a third person, the center armrest folds up for the handy jump seat. One of the reasons you don't need to improve on the original interior is because these came loaded. This includes air conditioning, power windows, power locks, cruise control, tilt steering column, power steering, dual airbags, AM/FM stereo with cassette, and a power driver's seat. The white-faced SVT gauge package has a speedometer that reads to 140 mph, and it's rumored that Ford even got more than that out on its test track!
The motor is what made the Lightning so special, and so a custom like this makes sure it's ready to be put on display. That full airbrushed mural on the inside of the hood will be a true beacon to invite others to come check out the engine bay. Over twenty-five components were removed and sent for plastic chrome, and the lines are now steel braided with AN fittings. Even the supercharger was specially chromed. It sits atop the 5.4-liter fuel-injected V8 to make for a seriously powerful pickup. As you look underneath, you can see the difference of a clean low-mileage build. You'll also spot some nice upgrades like the tubular front A-arms and the Borla mufflers. And while this one has barely done break-in miles, it remains a terrific driver. It includes a heavy-duty four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes with ABS.
