2000 Ford F-150 $25,995
A 2000 Ford F-150 Lightning SVT with its supercharged V8 is already exciting, but you can tell there's even more going on here. The electric-level custom paint and full custom interior turn this speedy pickup into an all-out head-turner.
The two-tone instantly grabs your attention. This truck was born Oxford White, and the paired it nicely with a metallic silver laid on the top half. This is custom PPG Deltron Stage 3 paint with PPG 2021 clear. To give this a distinctive dividing line, there's a blue stripe with a textured pattern and pinstripe border. So you can really tell there was time, effort, and a big investment to create something this unique (the owner is claiming over $22,000 in paint work alone!). Plus, the billet grille, clear headlights, clear taillights, and polished SVT wheels go quite well with the special sporty body kit that came on these Lightnings. And the more time you spend with this ford, the more impressive the details get. For example, the plastic step panels on the side of the bed that are usually black have been color-matched to the silver section. And there's even subtle pinstriping on the hood and tailgate. The level of customization and quality presentation really makes for the kind of total impression you'd get from a show-ready custom build, like a SEMA truck.
More of the outstanding customization continues inside. In fact, you still get a two-tone theme with the silver now being joined by a nice black on the leather seats. There's even blue stitching for a bit of standout color (just like the exterior.) This has all the best features, like power seats, power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, cup holders, dual airbags, cruise control, and a custom armrest center console. The upgraded infotainment system is an AM/FM/CD stereo with a touchscreen interface that includes a back-up camera and Bluetooth. The steering wheel is an upgraded Lincoln unit mounted on a tilt column, and it gives you a clear view to the white-faced SVT gauges.
Under the hood is the fuel-injected 5.4-liter V8. And you'll notice this has something on top: an Eaton supercharger. It's what made the Lightnings so lightning-quick. This supercharger has an upgraded pulley added with a custom tune by Ramsey Performance. The current over has always used Mobil 1 full synthetic, and the tidy look of the engine bay proves that this has been maintained with care. Ford properly supported the upgrade to the lightning-fast Lightning correctly with features like an aluminum driveshaft and a heavy duty four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive. Add in power steering, grippy Hankook Ventus ST tires, and four-wheel power disc brakes w/ABS make this powerful pickup an easy driver, too. The suspension is all new featuring Bell Tech drop spindles and a rear shackle kit with shocks. Brakes were also just serviced this year.
Complete with owner's manual and service manuals, this is a unique presentation of a mighty modern classic pickup. So if you love power and distinction, call today!
