Vehicle Description

2001 Ford F150 SVT Lightning

Various media outlets had given the SVT Lightning the 'fastest pickup' crown ever since the second-generation truck's introduction in 1999. It became a matter of official record when a stock 2003 Lightning reached 147 miles per hour on a test track. A redesigned five-spoke alloy wheel, satin-chrome interior door handles and two brand-new paint colors Sonic Blue Clearcoat (replacing True Blue) and Dark Shadow Grey (replacing Silver Metallic) were introduced for 2003. Plus, thanks to some new suspension tuning, Lightning's payload rating was increased to 1,350 pounds.

Little known, and not often seen, the Ford Lightning from 2001 was the precursor to the power truck craze of the early 2000's. This truck for consignment sports 53,855 actual miles, has its original window sticker, SVT certificate, and is one of 1,722 Lightnings built in Bright Red for the model year. A few modifications to improve on performance but with the stock parts included and it's all buttoned up for some fast hauling...of ass!

Exterior
Leading the way for this coke bottle sided, aero clad bathed in Bright Red truck is a clean gray grille with the well-known Ford blue oval. A wide curvaceous hood and the large running light inserted lower bumper with yet another grille inserted within as seen up front as well. Sides are showing well minded gaps and rockers have extended panels to help with more aero as well as good looks. The bumped out rear quarters leave a small accommodation for a "step side" cove in front of the fender. Also, the rear quarters seamlessly melt into the rear bumper and gate setup which is all body matching Bright Red as well. Covering the spay-in Line-X lined bed and sides in the inside is a like new black vinyl cover. All this curvaceous truck shaped steel is bathed in the factory applied Bright Red and is looking just fab. 18-inch chrome SVT wheels are wrapped in Hankook 295/45R18 like new rubber all around. A storm is brewing on the test track at Classic Auto Mall!

Interior
Clamoring to get to the interior before the storm, we open the doors with a "flash" and see plenty of light gray molded vinyl which forms the door panels. A seamless speaker, storage bins in the bottom, and some panels frame a smaller dark gray molded vinyl insert with some black panels housing the door locks, window toggles, and the mirror adjuster. All sleek and nicely seamless in its design. Seats are power adjustable for the driver and are rounded over very sporty high back buckets. These are covered in gray suede, and sport black leather insert panels which are broken up by the gray. Form and figure are key to these great lookers within the cab. A fold down center console is between the buckets and provides a large storage compartment or can be left folded up to make room for a 3rd. The dash in black houses white faced gauges and in the center are some temp control knobs and the factory AM/FM/Cassette/CD changer. I hear the thunder of a V8 in the distance!

Drivetrain
5.4 Liters of SOHC supercharged V8 are shoehorned into the engine bay. This mill can put out 380hp and is fed by EFI with the help of a JLT cold air intake. On the back is a 4R100 4-speed automatic and the rear axle is a limited slip 3.73 version. Everything under the hood is uber clean and looks just perfect. Get ready to "pour" it on.

Undercarriage
Wonderfully preserved all shiny black framing and red floor pans as well as other structural parts are all rust free. Independent front suspension with coil springs is on, and in back leaf springs aided by Bilstein shocks and struts all around. A Bassani cat back exhaust is on for the exhale all looking great and clean while exiting through the passenger side ground-effects mid bed. It was a real soaker but now the sun is coming out....

Drive-Ability
I entered this Lightning now knowing exactly what to expect as this is my second jaunt into this model of truck. It fired right up with a thunderous roar, and it was off to the test track. Here it had neck snapping acceleration, endless power from the supercharger, and great handling. All functions were working, and the seats were wonderfully comfy. Gotta luv leather and suede!

A rarely seen Ford Lightning pickup all in great condition with some slight upgrades, factory paint which is miles deep, and enough curves to make Marilyn Monroe jealous. Sporty fairings all around and a covered bed I feel a road trip coming on!
