Ford and Jay Leno recreate WalMart founder’s 1979 F-150 with new Lightning

Jay Leno and Ford unveiled an F-150 Lightning pickup finished up in the same paint and colour plan as Sam Walton’s — founder, 1st president and CEO of WalMart — initially truck, a 1979 F-150. The reveal took place roadside at the 2022 functioning of the Woodward Aspiration Cruise in front of a little crowd of onlookers.

Just like Walton’s F-150, Leno’s new Lightning gets a two-tone pink and white paint scheme. It will get the gray wheels and a grayed-out grille in Lightning manner, and it typically seems to be like a devoted replica to Walton’s outdated truck, minus substantially of the chrome and it not becoming a regular cab — Ford doesn’t provide the Lightning in just about anything but the Crew Taxi, so which is unattainable to replicate. Leno’s new Lightning does have the pet box in the mattress of the truck, however, which is very similar to what Walton utilised as an avid hunter.

What isn’t similar to Walton’s pickup is how attribute-rich it is. The pickup owned by the founder of WalMart was as foundation as foundation will get. It didn’t even have air conditioning. We really do not have any pictures of the new truck’s inside nevertheless, but the Lightning’s monitor-major insides are practically nothing like what can be discovered in the F-150 back again in 1979.
