Vehicle Description

It will go 147 miles per hour and travel the quarter mile in less than 14 seconds. That’s what a 2003 Ford F-150 SVT Lightning will do. Stock. This one has a little extra sauce in the form of a Kenne Bell 2.3L Supercharger and underdrive pulley, along with ARH long-tube headers and a complete 3-inch exhaust system. Johnny Lightning Performance applied the tune and she sings to the tune of 525 rear wheel horsepower and 550 pounds-feet of torque, an increase of about 145 horsepower and 100 lb-ft over stock. This is with a mild tune, there’s more in it. But that great driveability is all there. And beyond that, the truck is just plain comfortable. At the helm, you’re greeted with power steering, tilt, and power seats with lumbar support. Enjoy a variety of entertainment with the AM/FM/CD/DVD/MP3 touchscreen system; power windows and locks, and cruise control; all in air-conditioned comfort. This Lightning’s performance is well-rounded with the hardware to back up the raw power. Ford engineers originally assigned the 4R100 automatic transmission to the Super Duty half and ¾-ton platform, and it could handle the massive torque of a 7.3L Power Stroke Diesel. The rear shocks are gas-charged Bilsteins, and they’re staggered to control axle hop under hard acceleration. There’s also a 5-leaf spring setup and a 23mm stabilizer bar. In front are Bilstein gas-charged shock absorbers, SVT coil springs and a 31mm stabilizer bar. Lightnings are lowered 1.5 inches in front and 2 inches in back compared to regular F-150s. A new-for-2003 shade called Dark Shadow Gray sounds right for this truck and it is. The wheels are the original aluminum 5-spoke units, but powder coated black. Perfect. With the perfect set of tires too. 295/45ZR18 Nitto NT555 Extreme ZR ultra performance radials lead the way with big Nitto 305/45R18 NT555R Extreme Drag Radials in back for an excellent extreme performance matched set. Let’s not forget this is an F-150, and you can do more than one kind of hauling. With a payload of 1350lbs and a towing capacity of 5000 pounds, this is one capable truck. A rugged bed liner and a handsome tonneau cover add to the versatility. Capability, comfort, cornering, and some serious acceleration make this 2003 Ford F-150 SVT Lightning a great all-around package. The previous owner enjoyed it for 15 years and there are only 37,163 actual miles. In the glove box is the owner’s packet containing the original F-150 Owner’s Guide plus the SVT F-150 Lightning Owner’s Guide Supplement. It proudly proclaims that, “Every SVT vehicle produced has been designed and developed with four key virtues in mind: Performance, Substance, Exclusivity, and Value.” This outstanding example offers a little extra as well.

We recommend that all buyers who are unable to view a vehicle in person have a pre-purchase inspection done prior to purchase. Inspections can be performed by an independent party selected by the buyer. Due to the age and uniqueness of these special vehicles, it is difficult to cover all aspects and characteristics of each vehicle's condition within the limited space available. Thus, pre-purchase inspections are helpful to all parties involved. The information provided for this vehicle is presented to the best of our knowledge, and is deemed reliable.
