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!
Just a quick note to say what great people (Eddie Davis) are at Latemodel Restoration. I ordered and bought a set of Track Pack Wheels for my 2014 Mustang GT.Their prices and service is the BEST in the MUSTANG INDUSTRY, not only the price and service but the honesty. The wheels came thru with the wrong center caps one call to Eddie Davis corrected the situation in one phone call and the next day I had the center caps (FORD RACING) the correct ones no BS, they just did the Right Thing,whereas in this Day and Age you don't here that often. LATEMODEL RESTORATION is the only place for your Mustangs parts and equipment, trust me try them and you will see what I mean!!
