7,500-Mile Ford F-150 SVT Lightning for Sale, Paul Walker Would Have Loved It

Right now, if I could only stick to one truck for the rest of my life, my vote would go to the Ford F-150 SVT Lightning. This might be related to the fact that I was a huge The Fast and the Furious fan when the movie first came out, but it also looks like a good car to carry parts around for your project car too. Not being able to carry more than one passenger is somewhat of a downside, but then again, few people will dare to ride shotgun in this.

The SVT Lightning, God that does have a nice ring to it. You don't even have to be all that knowledgeable when it comes to cars to realize that this is one heck of a truck. The side exhaust, the muscle-car reminiscent wheels, and the overall aggressive stance of this truck will have you turn your head even before the engine is fired up. Speaking of which, this thing uses a 5.4-liter V8 unit that is also supercharged.

With this being a 2001 model, it has had some upgrades versus the 1999 and 2000 versions, so it sits now at 380 horsepower and 450 lb-ft (610 Nm) of torque, with all models using a 4-speed Ford 4R100 overdrive automatic gearbox. A total of 28,124 trucks were built between 1999 and 2004, which means this is one of 6,381 SVT Lightnings built in the year 2001.

The truck is located in Phoenix, Arizona, and the odometer only shows 7,426 miles (11,950 km), which means it should be ready to offer its new owner several more years of fast trucking action. The American Racing Torq Thrust wheels were installed to accommodate modern performance tires, but worry not, the original wheels and tires are included in the deal as well.

The price tag for this collector item was $31,745 back in the day, and it is now being offered for $41,995. While it may sound tempting to buy this and keep it in storage for another 20 years to see how high up its value will go, who would ever have the patience and the self-control to do that instead of taking her out at least once a week? On that note, I'm definitely putting this truck on my list for the future.
