1999 SVT Lightning Has Fewer Miles Than Expected and Supercharged V8 Originality

While the Blue Oval SUV world is currently focused on the first 2022 Bronco Raptor reviews, as far as the pickup truck realm is concerned, there is nothing but Lightning.

Well, perhaps you are already getting tired of all the EV attention, so maybe an SVT representative will help you stand out in the ICE crowd while it is still fashionable to do so. Yes, 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning battery-powered pickup trucks are all over the place – in huge markup auctions, at the dragstrip, or even inside aftermarket shops.

But some people may want to remember the Lightning moniker concerning a completely different Blue Oval. Remember, back during the ninth and tenth stint of the legendary best-selling F-Series, that nameplate stood for something else – SVT’s V8-equipped sporty pickup truck. Back then, there was nothing else but ICE power, and people might even want to have a choice between Windsor and supercharged Triton V8 power.

If the latter is your exact cup of tea, then here is a white 1999 SVT Lightning residing proudly with just 48k miles (around 77k kilometers) on the odometer in the inventory of Sherman, Texas-based vintage car dealership PC Classic Cars. A part of the tenth-generation F-150 roster, the second SVT Lightning packed a 5.4-liter supercharged mill that is original and in factory high-performance guise on this occasion.

Not everything stands unmodified with this feisty pickup truck, though. As such, we could note the custom bucket seats with a center console among the improvements, along with LED-converted fog light bulbs, or the aftermarket two-tone leather upholstery, among others. Alas, there are also a lot of factory elements to make sure it will not upset purists either, such as the Lightning wheels, factory gray interior, or the stock 5.4-liter EFI supercharged V8 that is connected to a 4R100 four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive.

Last, but not least, comes the issue of pricing. Well, this pickup truck has a clean Carfax along with a $35,500 quotation. Not bad, right?
