Featured Lil Red Trucks: Home 1978 1979
This is my Dodge Lil Red Express Truck:
1978 Dodge Lil Red Express. Pulled out of a snowbank in march of 2011 and rebuilt motor and trans to factory spec. This truck has a Numbers matching 360 that is factory painted red and I know the original owners son and he verified that the red engine is factory. Note the angle cut tips on the stacks. My friend has original pics of this truck when it was new and these tips are also factory.
When I bought the truck it came with all new N.O.S. body parts for the resto but for now I’m having too much fun with it unrestored. I drag race it at Brainerd Int’l Raceway and it does the quarter in 14.95 in street trim. If you have any info on why this truck has a red motor and the weird stacks let me know. I was told it was possibly the prototype for these trucks!
