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
This ½ ton 5-window 3100 pickup is largely original, including a well-maintained 235 straight-six engine and rebuilt 4-on-the-floor transmission. Updates I know about are:
· Conversion to 12 volts
· Rear-end replacement for a more highway-friendly ratio
· Change from closed to open driveline configuration for easier maintenance
· Radio replaced by (low-end) Craig cassette deck and speakers. Other gauges are original
· Recent top-grade paint job (original color was gray)
The cab upholstery is original, as is the sound and solid wooden bed.
It’s lived in my carport for the twenty years I’ve owned it and been put to light duty: runs to the dump, carrying firewood, moving friends, a little construction. The speedometer was replaced recently, so the 54,696 odometer reading is meaningless. I’ve probably racked up 3-4,000 miles in twenty years, and don’t know details of its history before that. It cruises well in town and on the highway. In tight spaces, the lack of power steering calls for some muscle.
I don’t see this truck winning top prizes at a big show anytime soon. The prize I get whenever I’m out and about is a steady stream of thumbs-up and knowing smiles.
