They called it a factory sport truck, but the first generation SVT Lightning was a bit more than a few stickers and some interior bling. It was built to compete with Chevy’s 454SS and had a special 240 horsepower version of the 351 Windsor under the hood, but it had some tricks up it’s sleeve when it came to the twisty parts, thanks in part to legendary F1 driver Jackie Stewart. It wasn’t just a spring/shock setting, the Lightning also used thicker F250 4X4 sourced frame rails and additional welded gusseting to increase chassis rigidity and make it stick to the pavement. Color matched bumpers, lower ride height, and blacked-out trim completed the look and with production limited to 11,563 units over 3 model years means the Lightning will be a future collectible.
