Description:

1979 Dodge Other Pickups Adventurer 150

Never Restored

Original Low Mileage Li’l Red Express

VEHICLE DESCRIPTION:

VEHICLE HISTORY: The current owner traded his ’65 GTO for this nice truck a few years ago thinking he would get more use out of it and it would be less expensive and more practical. But it is so nice and original he is afraid to use it and add mileage! With a recent LOF service some electrical safety modifications and a re-cored radiator it is ready to be driven and enjoyed by a new owner.

MARQUE HISTORY: In the mid to late 1970s trucks were pretty utilitarian vehicles and not very exciting. In 1978 Dodge decided to spice up life by putting something interesting out for the public consumption with their Adult Toy Program. Beginning in April of 1978 Dodge put out the Li’l Red Express Truck. For 1979 there was limited production of only 5118 with a sticker price of over $8000.

VEHICLE CONDITION:

We do a mechanical and cosmetic inspection to each vehicle before listing it for sale. This report is included below will provide a reasonable description of the vehicle condition. Older vehicles are subject to normal wear and tear and we have tried to indicate the overall condition of the vehicle to the best of our ability. But we can not always find everything that is not perfect with a vehicle so independent inspections are welcome and encouraged. We drive each vehicle approximately 20 miles but this is no indication of its long term road-worthiness. The only guarantee with an older vehicle is that someplace sometime something will need repaired!
