The Dodge Li'l Red Express set a standard on how to make a great performance truck. All Dodge Li'l Red Express trucks came from the factory painted in Bright Canyon Red in 1978 and Medium Canyon Red in 1979. Every Li'l Red Express was a regular cab Adventurer with a stepside bed.
Classic vintage Chevrolet pickup trucks are receiving growing interest among car enthusiasts. The most collectible muscle cars are numbers-matching survivors; the most sought-after vintage trucks are full custom builds.
Classic Car Overview
1947 Willys CJ2A Jeep with 1947 Bantam trailer. Experience the vehicle
that started it all, completely restored inside and out. Every nut and
bolt is either original or exact replacement (size, thread pitch, head
configuration) comes with complete 11 piece multiple configuration
canvas top and bows. Has been driven occasionally, I'm getting too old
to get in and out of this thing. It will go just about anywhere. 12
forward speeds and 4 in reverse (high and low range plus Warn Overdrive.
7 new tires (6.00 x 16 military) all worn parts replaced. It does leak a
bit of oil (I've never seen a Jeep that didn't) I have many spare parts
and accessories that will go with the Jeep if sold at full price. I've
driven this to 12,000 feet in the Rockies and it ran perfectly all the
way up and down. There are some variation to original that I chose to
make. It has a 12 volt alternator, I replaced the points with electronic
ignition (can't see it unless you take the distributor cap off). I have
a dual circuit master cylinder for safety (again, can't be seen unless
you crawl underneath with a mirror) Warn overdrive (wasn't available in
1947) Dualmatic front hubs (again, not in '47) and the insides of the
oil bath air cleaner has been gutted and replaced with a paper air
filter. Has a heater and vacuum wiper on the driver's side (manual on
passenger side) My thought on making the changes was "What would someone
have done to this in the middle 1950's when this was just a used Jeep?"
The odometer reads ~ 57,000 miles, I have no idea if it's original
after 71 years, but it might be, I can't imaging driving this for 57K
miles. I'm ready to rest after 250. Not something for touring the US
(although some brave souls back then did)
