    Hello everyone I’m new to the sight and new to Lightning’s, this was my dads! He rebuilt this from the ground up the little I know of it is this,,, it’s a 408 stroker, the rebuilt trans and converter has a computer under the passenger seat to adjust trans shifts, rancho lowering kit complete, I know there is more but I don’t know specifics so for now I’ll leave it at that! It has less than 5000 miles on the build with pics and paper work! Any ideas what it’s worth would be a great help! Thank you oh it’s a 1993

    It'd be worth more if you got some better wheels. It's a sweet truck. I would think somewhere in the mid teens for price.

    What's the mileage? Original paint? Stone stock ones actually bringing more money than modded ones? Yeah wheels gotta go. Other than that nice truck!!

    The odometer reads 120000 but that’s not accurate as everything is new! Original color new paint, nobody likes the rims my 70 year old dad put on this thing! Lol

    You might check with the guys on NLOC forum. They could probably help you out on what it’s worth. It’s a nice looking truck. Wish I had one.

    I have no idea what the market is for them now. I know several years ago I could get a very clean low mileage stockish '95 for around $15K. If that's still the case I'd give much less for a '93.

    The miles still matter.

    My 01 lightning shows 123k on the odo but the entire drivetrain has maybe 10k. Its still a 123k mile truck.

    Hows the paint? Who painted? Why? Whats trans controller?

    Its missing the bed stickers. The fender badges are wrong too. Depending on the buyer, this all matters



    Realistically that truck could go for 10-15k depending on the buyer. The mods really dont help a lot as low mile stock trucks are where its at.

    I'd be surprised if this one went as high as $15k. The incorrect badging, wheels, and mods would drive it down, but that's just me. There's an ass for every seat.

    I owned a 95 lighting for a while. With the seat hitting the back of the window, it was not very comfortable to drive. Stock it was pretty slow back even back in the day, so it wasn't all that pleasurable to drive stock. I would rather own this one and take it on short fun trips than a stock one, unless the stock one was really low mileage that just sat in my garage.

    Looks nice! I love the early L’s. Find some stock wheels and get the rears widened. Then keep the truck and drive and enjoy it. :)

    Those are the emblems from a 2nd Gen Lightning. 1st Gen had Lightning stickers on the bed sides and F150 emblems on the fenders.

    Ill give you my assessment.
    I have been a Lightning Guy since their inception. I own a 1993 #3285 of 5276.

    What its worth is a Relative term... What you need to do is find the right market for this... first impressions is that this lightning has your Dads custom touches to it.. which is fine but It doesn't seem exceptionally Modded for for the Track.

    now those are both good and bad things.. What I mean by that is that you could revert back to the original style wheels, original badging and try to appeal to the market that wants a more stock look. LMR.com has TONS of stuff for a reasonable price to revert it back to a more stock look.

    The reason I suggest moving to a more original look is that people don't really seem to want these trucks heavily modded for appearance or performance. the market buying these tends to be either collectors that want perfection or the young kid that's just starting out in the performance world and is a truck guy.... so you're either too modded for the collector or too pricey for the young truck enthusiast.

    With that said, at 120k on the clock I would imagine you can reasonably assume that $10-12K from the right buyer if you're willing to sit on it.
