A dark as midnight 2001 Ford F-150 SVT Lightning is a true dream truck. After all, they built these right with supercharged power and a suspension ready to handle it. So when one of these instant classics has been built to be a 420+ speed machine, you know it's time to pay attention.
The single cab with stepside bed makes this the sports car of the truck world. It even has special sleek features, like clear headlights, upgraded tail lights, billet-style dual grilles, and color-matched sport bumpers. And those polished 18-inch SVT alloys on the lowered suspension really give this an aggressive stance. The black paint shows the right signs of being the factory application. Show truck people will likely want to update a few places like the hood. But the rest of us can appreciate the largely clean and complete appearance with a good gloss to show off the stepside curves. While we imagine you want this one for mostly hauling asphalt, there is a full bed liner, bed toolbox, and a proper trailer hitch on the rear w/electric plug. So real truck duty is on the menu, too.
The interior got a big upgrade over the standard F-150, starting with the special seats. These are individual bucket-style with cool black leather inserts and SVT (Special Vehicle Team) 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. The full package looks well-kept for its age and mileage. This is loaded with all the best features, like air conditioning, power windows, power locks, cruise control, tilt steering column, dual airbags, an AM/FM/cassette stereo with CD changer, and the desirable sliding rear window. The white-faced sport gauge package has a speedometer that reads to 140 mph, and the additional readouts on the A-pillar and steering column tell you there was a larger investment in performance.
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. Plus, we're told this one is special with a fully built package that includes upgraded pulleys, a Bullet Stage 2 camshaft, Crane springs, and an LFP intercooler. And there are upgraded long tube headers that add more power while also giving this a terrific rumble from the dual exhaust. While most of the specs are from previous owners, the proof of the work is in the dyno sheet of 424 horsepower, which is 12 percent more than stock! Ford's SVT supported the Lightning correctly with features like a heavy-duty four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive. And this now is said to be rebuilt for added power and a shift kit. Plus, there's an aluminum driveshaft, four-wheel disc brakes w/ABS, and a limited-slip rear end.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, dyno sheet, and maintenance records. This is the powerful pickup that has been given the right investments to even pull ahead of its renowned siblings. So if you want a Lightning with extra thunder, call today!
