1978 Dodge Other Pickups Lil Red Express

Too many projects going on at the same time so decided to sell off this nice low mileage example of a true 1978 Lil Red Express. This was a barn find I purchased about 4 years ago with the intentions of redoing it and using it, ut after four years I still basically have done nothing with it and don't see me touching it anytime soon. Time to let it go so someone can redo it and enjoy it instead of it sitting. It is a very original real Lil Red Express. Has 31,679 original miles on it, nd it shows with the condition of the vehicle. Very minor rust. No sheet metal replacement needed. Truck is actually presentable enoughthat you probably could just go through the mechanical aspects of itto be sure its safe after sitting so long and drive it until your ready to redo it.Was a southern truck in a dry enviroment.Truck was parked around 1988 and sat until I purchased it around 2011. Frame rail stamped with proper VIN # as is the proper VIN numbers on the door tag. (5th digit is an (S) ). Engine and tranny are numbers correct. Stamped with proper numbers on the front of the engine (8W360lT with 6122 production date) and blank engine pad. I even have the matching tabs that are attached to the cab and bed to assure the correct cab and bed are assembled together at the factory. Even the original exhaust stacks are intact and in incredible condition.I did pull the tank and drain out all the old fuel. Replaced the fuel line front to back. Replaced the plugs, ires, ap, otor, il, ilter, ranny fluid and filter to get the truck running enough to pull it on and off a trailer. I also have a new set ofbrake lines I bought for it that go with it along with a new pair of door weatherstrips. Previous owner had a new set of wood for the outside of the bed that goes with it too but is missing the one small piece on the left rear. Interior is pretty nice and original as you can see. It will need a couple of armrests, lovebox and sill plates. Still has the original 8 track radio.Bumpers will need rechromed. Frame is solid with no rotted out areas. This IS a nice solid original unmolested example of a 78 Lil Red Express.I am not interested in any sort of trades as I already have too much. I am asking for a 1,000.00 non refundable deposit within 48 hours of auctions end in the form of a cashiers check or wire transfer. Balance due within 7 days in the form of a cashiers check, ire transfer or cash in person. If third party is hired to transport vehicle form of payment must clear my bank before vehicle will be released. Buyer responsible for shipping arrangements and all costs associated with it.
