by Slo on Mar 23, 2010 Vehicle: 1993 Ford F-150 XL 2dr Regular Cab SB
Got this used for $800. Needed another $1200 to get it into good mechanical condition. Interior is still very nice; the body is rusty in the usual Michigan places. 205+K miles on the straight six w/auto trans ... still runs PERFECTLY. Amazing powertrain.
Nomenclature for the Custom model is replaced by XL as the new base model and the Sport Appearance is likewise dropped. Interior refinements include a new speed control system employing a tap-up/tap-down adjustment feature and improved seat cushion padding for rear-seat comfort in SuperCab models. The Lightning, a 2WD street performance trim, offers a two-door regular cab/short box with a 240-hp 5.8L V8. Whiile ill-equipped for traditional truck duties, its impressive performance and aggressive looks cast a promising light on Ford's newly introduced SVT division.
