1979 Dodge Other Pickups Lil red expressSelling my 1979 Dodge lil red express pickup with 49,800 original miles, the truck has a 440 motor with 727 auto trans and a 8 1/4" rear end. The truck spent it's whole life in Florida and Seattle Washington before i got it. Sine i have had it it's spent it's life in heated storage unit away from the rain and snow. The truck is a true lil red as you can see in the vin the 5th digit is a " S " the truck also comes with a rolling chassis from another 1979 lil red express...everything you need to take it back to original. The EH-1 police 360 motor with the complete air cleaner housing and tubes, the original 727 auto trans and 9.25' rear end.
Here is everything the truck needs and the issues with the truck and chassis...this is not a perfect truck it needs some work but it's in very good shape for the year.
The truck has...
New Hedman headersNew mini starterNew dist. capNew taylor spark plug wiresNew spark plugsNew Demon 750 cfm carb / Electric chokeNew single chamber mufflersNew tires with new american racing torque thrust 2 wheels 15x7" front and 15x10" rear...has about 500 miles on themNew oak wood inside and outside of the bed with new pop rivets and chrome stripesNew door decalsComes with a new snap on Tonneau cover for the bed.
Everything wrong or that needs fixed on the truck...
The frame was trimmed for the fit the 440 exhaust..prev owner did that..the frame is fine it does not have any cracks in it.The brake lines...one is capped off at the master cylinder...i have a brand new complete brake line kit that is pre bent.Could use new brake rotors and padsCould use new bushings up front.Needs new valve cover gaskets...can not replace unless you take off the brake booster or replace with a small style booster.Needs a new oil pan gasket.Needs the exhaust finished to the smoke stacks..just straight pipe with the mufflers from the headers right nowNeeds new window and door sealsPassenger seat has a tearThe wood door inserts need new decals and put on the panelsNeeds repainted or buffed out...the truck has the original paint besides the doors...it's no where near perfect this is a 10 foot truck but it's very clean no major rust or rot.
Now the rolling chassis....
Complete chassis besides the tie rods...the sway bar is off right now but does come with it so the tires are not straight up front and it will not roll very easy...it can be loaded on a trailer but it's not very easy.
The frame was sandblasted and repainted...not perfect will need cleaned up
The 360 motor and 727 trans...i was told it was rebuilt and ran but i have no proof on that.
Original lil red wheels are rusted and will need painted or rechromed..the tires are junk.
This truck is a real head turner..it starts right up and can drive around town without issue...all the gauges and lights work. This was a AC truck when i got it but it will need some part put back on to be AC again. This is a perfect truck to drive around while you fix up or restore...but this is not a perfect truck it needs some work if you want a show winner if not fix the lil issues and truck it like it is.
This is a packaged deal the truck with the rolling chassis you are responsible for pickup them up or having them shipped...i will help load.
They can stay in the garage for 30 days after the sale...i need a $500 paypal deposit within 24 hours and the rest in cash in person. The truck does not leave unit it's paid for. SERIOUS BIDDERS ONLY PLEASE.
