I know first gen SVT Lightning owners often feel left-out when people start discussing SVT Lightnings. Let’s face it, some Ford guys do not even know that there was a 93-95 SVT truck; but, let’s look at this from the glass half full perspective – these trucks are actually pretty rare when compared to their 99-04 counterpart. Even better news is that we carry parts for your hard to find 93-95 Lightning and we know a thing or two about them as well.

Take a look at some of top restoration and performance parts below. Remember we are working hard to find and locate parts for your 1st gen Lightning!
I live in Canada which makes getting parts more difficult due to shipping and availability. I decided to try late model restoration out as they are Canada shipping friendly. The order went smoothly and the parts arrived, and were exactly as i expected. Then a problem arose with one item. Now being in Canada this usually makes this a very painful experience to deal with due to the cost of shipping products back and forth across the border. Most of the time it is just easier and cheaper to just order a new one and cut the loses. Not in this case. I sent out an email with the issue and by the time I went outside to take a picture i already had a response. A new product was shipped out immediately. I could not believe how good the customer service was. This will be where i will get what i need for now on. Anyone can sell a product but it is nice to have a company stand behind what they sell. Thanks again.
This car was originally made to escort people to their final resting place and it was on its way to it's own resting place after sitting for two years in storage then five additional years outside in ...
