This is my Dodge Lil Red Express Truck:
I own a 78 and 79 Dodge Lil Red Express Truck. I have owned the 78 for about 3 years and I have owned the 79 for about 1 year as it was passed to me by my brother who passed away two years ago. He owned the truck for at least 20 years as it was repainted in 1991. He also owned another 79 that was passed on to my sister that lives in OR. Both trucks were in AK and I shipped mine to IL.
Both 79’s were sold by a local AK dealer and it is believed they were sequential Lil Red’s. I haven’t been able to verify this yet. The serial numbers are not sequential, however, my brother advised that they were built on the same day. My two trucks are stock down to the gas caps and are works in progress.
