1st gen Lightning cam question

I was told that the 1st gen Lightnings cam was the same D3OE grind that '82-'84 and '85 CFI 5.0L Mustangs and Capris had. Is this true and if so why would Ford use an 11+ year old profile?

I highly doubt that is true.

Same. No point in using a car cam (designed for high end hp/tq) for a truck engine (lower end grunt).

I don't know what the profile is of the cam you mention, but here is a site that has some grind data on a factory GEN 1 L cam:
