Need Your Opinions

Interior Color: Gray
VIN: 2FTZF0735XCA84471
Engine: 8 Cylinders
Transmission: Automatic
Drivetrain: RWD

View the Free CARFAX Vehicle History Report
var vin = '2FTZF0735XCA84471'

Features: A/C: Front, Cruise Control, Power Locks, Power Steering, Remote Keyless Entry, Bucket Seats, Leather Interior, Power Seats, Airbag: Driver, Airbag: Passenger, Alarm, Anti-Lock Brakes, Fog Lights, Cassette Radio, CD Changer, Premium Sound, Power Windows, Tinted Glass, Alloy Wheels, Tow Package
Selling Points: **LOWERED PRICE**NEED TO SELL** PLEASE READ FULL DESCRIPTIONS.. I have owned this truck for almost 4 years. It has been garage kept and has definitely been "babied" by me. In addition to all standard equipment that comes with any Lightning, this truck has 20" rims & tires that I bought brand new last April that barely have 3k miles on them. The truck was lowered during the summer of '05. Mods to the engine include an AEM Brute Force air-intake, & custom-made straight-pipe exhaust out both sides(looks & sounds great!). Other mods include billet grilles top & bottom, drilled/slotted rotors, Street Scene sport mirrors, '01 Lightning clear headlights w/ clear corners, euro taillights, tinted windows, and 6x8 Kenwood speakers all around. **I still have all stock wheels, air-box, etc. that go with the truck, including the tow hitch that I removed.
Condition: This Lightning is in excellent shape, runs great, and has never given me any major problems since I've owned it. I used to be a detailer for a car dealership, so I've kept very good care of this truck. The paint is original but shines like new. It has been buffed and waxed numerous times. The interior is immaculate and the engine is super clean. PICS DO NOT DO ENOUGH JUSTICE FOR THIS TRUCK!! I have received many compliments on this truck, and many people do not believe its a '99. The only reason I want to sell it is because I would like to find a house soon since I now have a baby. I know what's more important so I figured it'd be best if I sold the truck. ***Please feel free to email or call me if you have any questions or offers. Thanks.

Is it a good value at $16,000?

flareside_thunder is starting off with a positive reputation.
Given all the details he's taken the time to written and all the stuff he's installed....I'd look at the blue book value on it and add about 4000 to that....this guy obviously has alot of time and money into it.......just my .02

I'd say the price is kinda high for a 99 with that many miles.
Better find out if he had the intercooler recall taken care of!

Oh and I don't like black wheels,,,,but that's just me,,lol

Looking for a hot rod George????

Oh ya,
look around some. For that price you could fine one a couple years newer. Maybe with lower miles and the newer ones make a little more power then the 99 did.
