Vehicle Specs

The Dodge Li'L Red Express was only built for the 1978 and 1979 model years with fewer than 8,000 units being built in total, and this one is one of the 5,118 units that were made for 1979. This model year is recognizable by the dual, stacked headlights, and just like the 1978 model, the styling is defined by the fire engine red paint job, gold body graphics, and, of course, the dual chrome exhaust stacks just behind the cab. What really sets this sport truck apart is the tuned 360 cubic-inch V8 with a four-barrel carburetor, and this is backed by a three-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the rear tires.

With the success of 1978, Dodge Li'l Red Express Truck production of the 1979 Dodge Li'l Red Express Truck was increased to 5,118. Most of the features remained unchanged for 1979 however there were some changes which included a catalytic converter, unleaded gas, and an 85 MPH speedometer.

The most noticeable changes on the 1979 editions were the new flat hood and dual square headlights replacing the round versions on the 1978 Dodge Li'l Red Express Truck.

Overall a very solid example of a low-production Dodge Li'l Red Express truck. Engine runs well and shifts great. Original AC system is complete but will need service/replament. See Photos for overall condition.
