2004 Ford F-150 Lightning Is the Definition Of “Garage Queen”
With ridiculously low 147,000 miles, this 13-year-old Ford SVT Lightning has been babied immensely since day one.
If you haven’t noticed already, it’s getting harder and harder to find clean and original F-150 Lightning high-performance trucks. Mostly because the majority of them have been ridden hard over the years. In fact, many second-generation Lightnings have seen extensive track use, which obviously isn’t a bad thing. Unless you’re trying to find one that doesn’t feel like it’s going to rattle a fender off at cruise night, that is.
On the other end of the spectrum, you’ve got the zero-mile trucks their respective owners stored in hermetically-sealed chambers, and wrapped in bubble wrap. Unfortunately for them, the F-150 Lightning never exactly went up in value like collectors had hoped for. We, however, prefer our trucks to have a few lovingly driven miles on them, just so long as they weren’t accumulated one quarter-mile at a time!
This 2004 F-150 Lightning is a beautiful, garage kept, super clean example with no obvious signs of abuse. Sure, it’s got 147,000 miles on the odometer, but you’d never guess it. Best of all? The $14,900 asking price is pretty darn reasonable. Oh, and the truck has zero mods on it. That’s right, not even a cheesy cold air intake or burly exhaust!
And that, friends, is something you just don’t see very often. Don’t get us wrong – we love to see Lightnings tearing up the drag strip and setting records at the Texas Mile. Heck, we even appreciate those crazy people who preserved these things like a mummified corpse. But for those of us who actually want to buy and drive one, we’ll take something like this babied 2004, thank you very much.
