The redesigned eleventh generation F-150, using the new P2 platform, was introduced by Ford in January 2003 at the North American International Auto Show. Designed by Tyler Blake under Patrick Schiavone between 1999 and January 2000, the styling was a revolutionary, more angular update of the PN-96. On August 29, 2000, the final production design was frozen. Development began in 1997, with scheduled production for September 2002 alongside the U222 Expedition. Development later ended in 2003 due to delays. The side windows also changed to a Kenworth «Daylight Door» and Ford Super Duty-like appearance; dipping towards the front of the door. Initially, only Ford’s 4.6 L Triton or new 3-valve 5.4 L 3V Triton V8 engines and four-speed automatic transmissions were offered to the retail public on the new trucks. For the 2005 model year, Ford›s 4.2 L Essex V6 and manual transmission became available and standard on base models after they were available only for fleet orders for 2004 and automatic headlamps became available. The 11th generation F-150 is the last vehicle Ford manufactured with a gasoline pushrod V6.
Probably one of the best examples in the Country of this rare and very collectible pick up.
This car was imported new from Florida in 2004 and had a full RHD conversation by American Trucks, including correct steering rack, dashboard, lights and controls.
Being the 2004 Heritage model it is the last of the Lightings, once hailed as the world’s fastest pick up with its 5.4 V8 Supercharged engine. This is also the revised design that did not suffer some of the problems that the older ones did. It is very clean in red with contrasting grey cloth interior having covered just 34k miles- it is clear that this has been a show car and not a work truck. Comes with plenty of history and very well specified including load cover, overdrive and reverse camera.
