Its fun to be the outlaw, and none did it better than the rare 1978 Dodge D150 Lil Red Express. With its big V8, side stack exhaust, and cool wood package, this is absolutely distinguishable. So look over all the details, but you already know this red-hot truck is a fast-moving classic. The story goes that the folks over at Dodge figured out how to return the muscle car era. While emissions regulations controlled cars, the truck market was still able to get some hot packages. So if they were going to be outlaws, they were going to be brazen. The Lil Red Express lived up to its name with Bright Canyon Red paint and full gold tape stripe package. Its believed that there has been a nice investment in these colors and, and quite frankly, we understand why. After all, everyone who knows the legend expects the truck to look this good. While the logo on each door was pretty bold, its nothing compared to the real wood applied to the side of the step-side bed and the tailgate. The Mopar boys still had more tricks to complete their standout package. Bright chrome bumpers, a bright chrome grille, and those amazing vertical exhaust stacks made people stand up and pay attention. While this total package was instantly attractive, few people could pay the high price. This is a rare example with only 2,188 Lil Red Express trucks produced in its inaugural year. Inside, the interior does a good job of preserving tradition. The black looks right for a muscle truck, and the seat has even been recovered in the correct Dodge pattern. Youll slip behind the classic Mopar Tuff three-spoke sports steering wheel. Beyond that is the classic driver-oriented dash with all the essential controls at your fingertips. We know youll want to be driving with the windows down all the time to listen to those vertical stacks. But just in case you need a little extra breeze, this truck comes with provisions for air conditioning. The true outlaw nature of this pickup comes from whats under the hood. Mopars strong 360 cubic-inch V8 was already a great motor to start with, and the Lil Red Express took full advantage of looser emissions regulations. And yes, those vertical exhaust stacks really do give this a unique high-rise, high-performance soundtrack. More than just a mean V8, the whole presentation looks great. The blue block, bright valve covers, and matching air topper stand out nicely against the red painted engine bay. Plus, the thick front sway bar, strong Torqueflite A727 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes do a great job of making this powerful pickup an easy cruiser. This is a turn-key ready head-turning rare classic. So when you can find this performance pickup for such a nice price, you know you need to act fast. Call now!
The 1979 Dodge D150 Lil Red Express is the bold outlaw that got us hooked on sports trucks. Its a story that people love to tell about how one company gave the people the V8 power they really wanted but were shut down after a couple of years. And the few people that get to tell this rare tale are the lucky few who can find a shining example like this. The Dodge boys were truly flying in the face of regulations as they allowed their cop motor to hit the streets. A loophole let it go into trucks, so they decided to be as bold as possible with their defiance. Thats how you get a Canyon Red pickup with oak wood bolted to the sides. And oh yeah, there are two gleaming vertical exhaust stacks extending above the roof line. But being a rebel didnt come cheap, and Dodge only sold around 5,120 examples in 1979 the final year of this rare two-year offering. This example really looks both correct and highly original right down to the details. The new for 79 front end is gleaming; the chrome slotted Mag wheels are still mirror-like; and of course, everyone loves the full gold decal package that was another reminder of this pickups defiance. The interior is the perfect mix of pickup and performance, and the seat shows this off the best. You have a wide bench that can sit three across. But when the folding armrest is down, theres the kind of individual comfort youll find in the best muscle cars. The black of the seats coordinate with the door panels, dash, and carpeting for a deep and dark presentation. Similar to the exterior, theres some nice wood-like trim for added flair. The driver-oriented dash gives you all the gauges directly in front of you, as well as an easy reach to everything from the heat/defrost controls, to the upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo. The motor is a big part of the appeal of the Lil Red Express, and so its great to see this one looking tidy with plenty hints of originality. They snuck a cop motor into the Lil Red Express, and so it made them the true hot one. It inhales through a four-barrel carburetor, and youll never get tired of the sound from the exhaust stacks that offer a unique high-rise high-performance soundtrack. While this is meant to be the ultimate outlaw truck, its quite easy to tame on the streets thanks to the thick front sway bar, three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and recently serviced front disc brakes. Plus, those who want to use this rare classic for full truck duty can even take advantage of the added tow hitch. If you like rarity, distinction, and an outlaw history, then dont let this muscle Mopar truck slip away. Call now!
