1976 GMC C/K 1500
Ford’s first-generation off-roader has gone from cult classic to mainstream collector.
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 Car Overview
I have the original build sheet and delivery sheet for the truck and for the most part it is all original. The owner kept a interesting log on the truck. Most oil changes were done 100 miles before 3000 miles. Any parts he replaced he listed the AC part number etc. Only change was the exhaust system was changed to a Flow Master duel exhaust system.
The engine is the 350 V8 165 HP with the four barrel carburetor, I did replace it with a new Rockchester carb like the original. I do have the old one as well. It also has factory air with a new AC compressor, fan, evaporator coil and parts and blows cold when you need it. It has power brakes with disc brakes on the front. I did replace the master cylinder, vacuum booster, rotors and lining on the front and back. I did have new wheel bearing installed on the front. The transmission is the three speed 350, did have new filter and oil replace in it. New AC Delco alternator also replaced.
Inside is in excellent condition. I did replace the carpet and seat covers. The seat covers are the original design with the original medallions installed on it. All the gauges work as well as the radio which was updated at sometime to a AM/FM AC Delco radio. I did install rear speakers which were an option on this truck. Also replaced the front speaker.
It is already to drive any place. There is really nothing to do on the truck. I do have a California car cover for it. Just get into it and drive and have fun. Please look at the pictures, you will see what I mean.
I decided to take on a 1964 GTO Tri Power for my next challenge.
