An attractive muscle truck created for performance.
From 1993 through 1995, Ford created a potent version of its top-selling F-150 pickup truck to compete against other performance-oriented GM vehicles such as the GMC Syclone and Chevy 454 SS. That's when the SVT (Special Vehicle Team) developed the performance-oriented SVT Lightning with impressive power but still retained the ruggedness and capability of Ford's F-Series. Classic Car Liquidators is happy to offer the chance to take home this incredible 1994 Ford F-150 SVT Lightning with just 20,863 miles on the clock.
While there is no denying that the sporty pickup has an attractive exterior, the main selling point was tucked under the hood. Powered by a slightly modified fuel-injected 351cui V8 engine, the muscular Lightning generated 240-horsepower and 340 ft/lb of torque straight out of the gate. The truck handles smooth and sits low thanks to modifications made to a basic F-150 chassis. The sporty pickup sprints from 0 to 60 in 7.6 seconds and can reach a top speed of 110 miles per hour.
Under the truck is a Ford 8.8-inch solid rear that houses 4.10 gears. Stopping power comes from the combination of ABS drum and disc brakes. The Lightning was given a custom tubular intake manifold, and it came with true dual exhaust mated to stainless steel tubular exhaust headers.

The '94 Ford Lightning was only offered as a standard 2-door cab with a short-bed, and it was only produced with a 4-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. Even more, the truck was only available in three colors: red, black, and white. The Lightning was easy to identify with badges and accents placed from the exterior to the engine bay. Only 11,563 first-gen SVT Lightnings were produced total over its 3-year span, and only 1,460 of those were slathered in white for the 1994 model year. Who knows how many of that number actually still exist today.
