This 2001 Ford F-150 Lightning SVT represents a low-mileage and
exceptionally preserved example of the supercharged Lightning. So
as you look at the details, you see a vivid and speedy pickup
that's also a modern classic that has been treated with the respect
you want in a collectible.
Averaging only about 600 miles annually means this one only left
the garage for special occasions. It also means you get a
well-preserved example, right down to the Bright Red paint. Not
only is it the factory application, but this aggressive color
retains the kind of gloss and shine that can turn your garage into
a showroom. These have a timelessly awesome style with the single
cab and stepside bed that makes it 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 grille, a lowered stance, side exhaust, and
special 18-inch SVT alloys. There are the right additions, like the
hard tonneau with a fully carpeted bed underneath. It preserves the
cargo area to make it like a big trunk. And if you do want to use
this for real truck duty hauling, the rear hitch lets you attach a
trailer. That way this can remain looking beautiful even if there's
a job to do.
The preserved condition of the materials inside 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, power steering,
dual airbags, AM/FM stereo w/cassette, and the desirable sliding
rear window. 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!
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 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. This full
package is rated at 380 horsepower and 450 ft-lb of torque
(remember 2001 is a special year that gave it extra power over
previous ones.) Ford didn't just drop in a high-performance motor
and walk away. They supported it correctly with features like a
heavy duty four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive. The
suspension was lowered, Bilstein shocks were added, and it has
four-wheel disc brakes w/ABS. So we bet you won't be able to resist
adding some miles to the low odometer in this all-around
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual. This is a true
collectible, and so if you want the best, you know this one can't
slip away. Call now!
