1995 SVT F-150 Lightning

The SVT F-150 Lightning’s 351 Windsor V-8, equipped with GT-40 cylinder heads and tubular intake manifold, proved the inspiration behind the 1995 Cobra R powerplant. For 1995, Lighting was again offered in three paint colors and with an SVT-unique interior, featuring a custom embroidered 40-20-40 seat with a large, flip-up console to accommodate third-seat capability. Mechanically unchanged with its 4.10:1 rear axle ratio, big brakes and 17 x 8-inch Firestone Firehawk tires, the 1995 Lightning helped position Ford as a performance truck leader. The enthusiast following created by the first-gen 1993-95 Lightnings also ensured that SVT would investigate future performance truck offerings.
