1978 Dodge D/W Truck $17,900

Grand Rapids, MI Red · 360 V8 · 89,572 miles
GR Auto Gallery is proud to present this 1978 Dodge Lil Red Express pickup truck for purchase. This truck was recently freshened with new paint and engine work. It is powered by the original engine and transmission. The engine was recently gone through and other recent work was completed including new gaskets, a new Edelbrock performer series 600cfm carburetor, new exhaust system, new decals, new chrome gas cap, new brakes/pads/calipers/rotors, new belts, new shocks & springs, new front motor mount and a new master cylinder. This truck is in great condition, it is a head turner that is rare to come by - plus its a lot of fun to cruise in. Not many production vehicles have this much character and such a cool story. Please call or email for more details!

At the time the Lil Red Express was built it was the fastest American vehicle at the time from 0 to 100 mph. Yes, you read that correctly. In the late 70s government emissions standards relatively killed all muscle in cars. Dodge decided to rebel with the Adult Toys line that also included the Warlock and the Midnight Express. The Lil Red Express had a special High Performance 360 C.I. 4-barrel small block engine code (EH1) which was a modified version of the 360 police engine (E58) producing 225 net horsepower @ 3800 RPM. The package also included Hemi style mufflers with a crossover pipe breathing through 2 chrome stacks located behind the cab, a special 727 transmission and 3.55:1 rear gearing. These trucks are mean and certainly stand out in the crowd as rare, bold American production trucks.
