1979 Lil Red For Sale

This is a clean and solid example of the Dodges Li'l Red Express. This limited production model truck is finished in proper medium canyon red with original power train consisting of a 360 Hi Performance EH1 V-8 with 4 barrel Carter ThermoQuad 850 CFM carburetor, automatic 727 LoadFlite transmission with the original high stall torque converter.

The original odometer reading on the vehicle is currently 56, 373 km's. (35,233 miles)

The truck has been registered with Galen V. Govier in the LRT/ Warlock Registry.

Exterior

The truck has original metal panels except for bed strips which I replaced with stainless and painted. Original floors, doors, fenders, inner fenders, hood, cab, frame. Frame was stripped then sealed with epoxy primer and painted black. All the steel panels and cab were stripped and then coated with red glasurit primer and then painted with PPG Medium Canyon Red paint that has been wet sanded and polished. Original Chrysler gold accent tape stripes and decals for the front and rear wheel openings, doors and tailgate have been applied. The paint is free from marks or chips. NOS door handles and mirror supports and grill. Original front and rear bumpers and step plates have been rechromed and are beautiful. Original oak wooden side inserts on the sides and tailgate attached with original bolts and chrome caps. I replaced the original wooden bed floor with solid oak. All wood has been sanded smooth and covered with 6 coats of spar vanish.

Interior

The interior of the truck sports the original black vinyl bucket seats with centre folding console. Sport "Tuff" steering wheel with full set of gauges in the argent-faced instrument bezel and wood tone door panels on black full door panels and a new carpet  to complete the interior. Original Am/Fm/Mx stereo with 6X9 speakers mounted in the doors.

Under the Hood

This is the original 360 cubic inch V-8  with a 4 barrel ThermoQuad 850 CFM carburetor. The engine was professional rebuilt.  The original twin snorkel induction air breather sits on top. I rechromed the air breather lid and the valve covers.  The engine is backed by the original 3 speed, "Loadflite" 727 automatic transmission with a high-stall torque converter leading to the 3.55:1 rear differential. Dual exhaust lead to the vertical tailpipes with original perforated stainless heat shields that flank the bed just aft of the cab. Power steering and Power brakes. There is 3000 km's (1875 miles) on engine/transmission since restoration was completed in 2001.

Wheels and Tires

I have the original 15 X 8-5 slot chrome wheels with the original Goodyear  Radial GT LR60x15 tires. They are still useable but I do not use them because you are unable to get them.  I currently have on 15 X 8 slot police rims with Goodyear Wingfoot HP 245/60R/15.
 

Price : $25,000 CAD

1978 Lil Red Express Truck
IT ONLY HAS 45000 MILES ON IT AND HAS BEEN
GARAGED OR IN THE BARN MOST ALL ITS LIFE.  THE PAINT IS IN GREAT SHAPE .,  SHINES
LIKE NEW  .   WE DID HAVE THE HOOD MATCHED AND PAINTED  AND THE FELLOW THAT
DID THE WORK SAID HE WOULD LEAVE THE REST ALONE ,IT WAS IN THAT GOOD OF SHAPE.

NO RUST OR DAMAGE.  THE WOOD IS SOLID AND IN GOOD SHAPE,  THE WOOD IN THE BED
NEEDS TO BE SANDED AND REFINISHED  BUT IT IS SOLID  NO ROT.   THE BED LOOKS
LIKE NOTHING HAS BEEN HAULED IN IT AND THE STRAPS BETWEEN THE WOOD LOOK LIKE
NEW.  THIS TRUCK HAS ALL THE FACTORY EQUIPMENT THAT IT CAME WITH,  WHEELS AND
ALL,  I DO HAVE A BRAND NEW SET OF MAGS AND TIRES ON THE TRUCK BECAUSE I LIKE
THEM BETTER BUT I ALSO HAVE THE ONES THAT CAME ON IT.  THE INTERIOR IS BLACK
NO DASH CRACKS OR RIPES   CARPET IS GOOD AND THE BUCKET SEATS ARE IN GOOD SHAPE
ONE SMALL SEAM TEAR, ABOUT 3 INCHES LONG , IT CAN BE REPAIRED.    ALL THE
CHROME IS FANTASTIC, IT SHINES LIKE NEW MONEY.  THE NUMBERS ALL MATCH.  WE HAVE
REPLACED A WHOLE LOT OF OLD PARTS THAT WERE SHOWING THEIR AGE AND I HAVE A
MOPAR MAN WHO ONLY WILL USE REAL MOPAR STUFF,  SO ITS ALL MOPAR  TOP TO BOTTOM.
THIS TRUCK RUNS AND DRIVES LIKE NEW,  IT EVEN RIDES GOOD WITH 25 YEAR OLD
SHOCKS,  WHICH I AM CONSIDERING REPLACING   WE WILL SEE.  IT DONT HAVE AIR,  THATS
THE ONLY  DOWN FALL   BUT WITH THE VENTS OPEN AND THE TRUCK MOVING WE HAVE
NOT REALLY BEEN  UNCOMFORTABLE.  ANYWAY THIS IS WHAT THE TRUCK IS  ITS A SHOW
WINNER FOR SURE, BUT I DONT HAVE TIME FOR SUCH THINGS  SO SOMEONE ELSE CAN GO
ENJOY THE SHOW WITH THIS LIL RED.

 IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN A VERY NICE TRUCK  THIS IS WORTH A LOOK.
