During the 1970's American automotive manufacturers had re-defining their automotive visions. High horsepower was a thing of the distant past as US regulations forced manufactures to meet strict emission and fuel economy standards. Dodge was able to find a loop hole in those regulations and the Lil' Red Express was born. Dodge was able to thumb its nose at governmental regulators. The 1978 Lil Red Express did not have catalytic converters. It did have a special high performance 360 CID 4 Barrel engine code EH1 which was a modified 360 police engine producing net 225 hp at 3800 RPM. It was the fastest American made vehicle at that time from 0-100 mph. With that success, Dodge boosted production to 5118 units for 79 with some subtle design changes including a catalytic converter, dual square headlights and an 85 mph speedometer.

The 1979 Lil Red Express offered here is a high quality example featuring 78921 original miles features the original numbers matching engine that has been rebuilt and the original 727 torqueflite transmission. It has been the recipient of a high quality repaint, new wood, new radiator and Edelbrock carb. These trucks are one of the most unique vehicles that Dodge has ever built and are becoming quite popular among collectors. A great opportunity to acquire the fastest American vehicle of the late 70's.
