Considering `95 Lightning, what to look for / offer?
I'm about to make an offer on a `95 red lightning that is for sale near me.
What areas should I look out for as far as problems?
I have owned a `95 F-150 XL 5-speed in the past and I liked it, right now I have an `89 mustang 5.0 that I converted from a 4 cyl / auto to a 5.0 / 5-speed so I do have a pretty good working knowledge of what makes this gen. fords tick.
the truck has 125k miles and has been used for towing, I plan to use it to tow as well.
What should compression #'s be, what things are common to happen, etc?
Basically what I know about it:
new brakes, tires, KYB shocks
Paint looks great, has a dent on tailgate that he said he will fix before selling.
Used for towing (he took a pic of it for me as it sat today and it was hooked up to a flatbed with his mustang on it )
Does not leak anything
Basically this will be a daily driver, will tow my mustang with it occasionally, and I do plan to put a set of AFR 185 heads on it.
also if anyone knows of any other lightnings for sale in norcal I'd be open to looking at others, ideally I want a black one, but since there were only ~690 `95 Red ones made I geuss I can't really complain at the price he is asking.
