In 1978 The Dodge Lil' Red Express was the fastest American made vehicle from 0 to 100 MPH as tested by Car and Driver magazine.

Because of a loophole in the emissions regulations the 1978 Dodge Lil' Red Express Truck's did not have catalytic converters, what the Lil' Red Express did have was a special High Performance 360 C.I. 4-barrel small block engine code (EH1) which was a modified version of the 360 police engine (E58) producing 225 net horsepower @ 3800 RPM. The package also included Hemi style mufflers with a crossover pipe breathing through 2 chrome stacks located behind the cab, a special 727 transmission and 3.55:1 rear gearing.

This truck has theoptional buckets and a fold down arm/rest console which was available both years.The Dodge Lil' Red Express Truck was a hit with the public; 2,188 were produced in 1978.

With the success of the 1978 Dodge Lil' Red Express Truck production of the 1979 Dodge Lil' Red Express Truck's was increased to 5,118. Most of the features remained unchanged for 1979 however there was some changes which included a catalytic converter, unleaded gas, 85 MPH speedometer.

The most noticeable changes on the 1979 editions was the new flat hood and dual square headlights replacing the round versions on 1978 Dodge Lil' Red Express Truck's and the 1979's rode on LR60x15 raised white letter tires on 8-inch chrome wheels on all 4 corners.

This truck was bought out of Arizona, so there is absolutely no rust. The truck is in really good shape. The boards in the bed need to be replaced, but it has the original boards under the existing plywood. When I bought the truck, I was told that the miles that the odometer shows are original miles – I don’t have any way to verify that, but that is what I was told. When you look at the truck, you will agree that it appears to be accurate. There are 89,847 miles on the truck. It has the original numbers matching 360 Express engine. The air conditioning blows cold. The wheels are the original chrome slot wheels that came on the truck new. This is a very nice truck. Please feel free to call with any questions 417-337-1003 (David)
