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 was a ground up restoration by professional car builder Jerry Pignolo of Scottsdale, Arizona. Everything was taken off including the cab and bed. Everything was painted, even the undersides of everything. Cab, bed, frame…..everything. Not a spec or rust on this awesome truck.
Repeat……everything on here is new or rebuilt.
This truck run and drives like a dream. If you want something that you can wrench around on then this truck is not for you. If you like to just drive then this is the truck for you.
This truck looks and sounds awesome. I cant go a block without getting a thumbs up or getting flagged down.

This truck is awesome in everyway. Please feel free to come by for an inspection and test drive. Bring anyone you want; mechanic, paint and or body guy, your wife, pastor or priest. This truck will not disappoint. What you see here is what you get. I have more pictures upon request. You are welcome to call or text me with any questions or if you prefer to make a deal over the phone.
Note, the pictures show both green and black highlights for the interior. I recently put the black interior parts back on but have both and they will be included.
The pinstripes were done over the clear coat so it wouldn’t be too hard to have them removed professionally if so desired.
All sales are final. NO returns. Please….please …please ….pleeeeaaassse……check with whomever you need to check with prior to purchasing this bad maama jama. I just sold a car on here and the buyer wanted to return it after having it for three weeks. He said he bought the car for his wife but she didn’t care for the way it looked? That’s not my problem guy.
I can take more pictures of anything you want, just send me a message. Thanks. Good luck.

I think that’s it. I’ve described this bad boy as best as I can. This thing was built to run, its not some slapped together truck flip like we see so often on here. This is quality work and a ton of money was spent.
God Bless America.
