Description

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 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 through a 9.25-inch limited slip rear end with 3.55 gears. With the success of the 1978 Dodge Li'l Red Express Truck production of the 1979 Dodge Li'l Red Express Truck's was increased to 5,118. Most of the features remained unchanged for 1979 however there was some changes which included a catalytic converter, unleaded gas, 85 MPH speedometer. The most noticeable changes on the 1979 editions was the new flat hood and dual square headlights replacing the round versions on 1978 Dodge Li'l Red Express Truck's and the 1979's rode on LR60x15 raised white letter tires on 8-inch chrome wheels on all 4 corners. This Li'l Red Truck has been on display at a local Dodge Dealership since 2009 and is now being offered for sale. Original truck with one repaint in base clear due to failing paint. Absolute show winning truck with all original metal and no rust anywhere. A true must see in person!
