1979 Dodge OtherBelieve it or not, this 1979 Dodge Lil Red Express pickup was one of the fastest vehicles you could buy in 1979. With a strong-running 360, a distinctive look, and not a lot of weight to haul around, was this the first muscle truck? Either way, if you want attention, this is an affordable way to get a whole truckload of it.
All the Lil Red Express trucks were (obviously) Canyon Red, and the combination of the familiar Ram front end with a stepside bed gives it a vintage look that works rather well. This one has been repainted, and the color match is exact, so it has a fresh-from-the-70s look that is pretty cool today. The gold decals on the doors are inOK shape and the wood paneling on the bedneeds tcl This was the 70s, so build quality was decent, and the restoration keeps it pretty much as it would have been when it was new: not perfect but decent. A big chrome grille, heavy-duty chrome bumpers, and yes, a pair of functional exhaust stacks, all dress the truck up and give it its distinctive look. put itto workor justcruising to local shows.
The interior in this one is plain black vinyl, nice black carpets, and handsome door panels that are in great shape. The original radio is good, The dash pad is in great shape, I can think of worse places to spend a Saturday afternoon, cant you?
The engine is a 360 cubic inch V8, which makes plenty of power to make the Express feel downright spunky on the road. Its been rebuilt to stock specs and upgraded with things likea holly carb and RV camso its a little stronger than the factory edition. A lot of the other ancillaries were upgraded at the same time, including the radiator, a transmission cooler, and a fresh dual exhaust system feeding those tall stacks. The TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic was also rebuilt and feeds the original rear end. If you look closely, youll see an all-new brake system, including the lines and hoses, and a fresh stainless steel gas tank hanging on the frame. Its got the right stance for a truck and sits the original chrome wheelsand newradials all around.
These have always been cool trucks, and with the long list of recent work on this one, it sure seems like a smart buy. Guaranteed to draw a crowd wherever it goes, this is a fast, fun little hauler that definitely earns its keep. Call for any more info (951) 400-3246 Robert.
