Cool Classics: 9 Classic Chevrolet Trucks Reach 6 Figures

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

When a rare truck is both survivor-grade and value-priced, its time to take notice. This 1979 Dodge Lil Red Express Adventurer D150 has all the unmistakable looks of one of the coolest and first factory sport truck ever to hit the streets. The history of the Lil Red Express is always a great tale. Dodge created pickups to skirt new power-zapping emissions regulations. And they did it with such bold defiance that they delivered them with two vehicle exhaust stacks right to the public. This one not only retains those cool chromed chimneys, but also other special details like the door decals, tailgate, and wood side inserts for the bed. These are all part of a survivor-grade package. So the price on this one leaves room in the budget for a respray, but theres already something undeniable cool about a vintage pickup with a ready-to-work attitude. You even have a trailer hitch and the wood bed has been covered with diamond plating to really keep getting the job done. No matter how you decide to enjoy this Mopar, youll always be in rare company. Dodge only sold around 5,120 examples in 1979 - the final year of this rare two-year offering. Black interior always look great against the red exteriors. Just like the outside, the inside remains survivor-style...and a vintage truck, that means it has charm. Plus, there are nice features like the grippy steering wheel and a dash panel that wraps around the driver. And the side vent windows combine with the rear sliding glass to deliver old-school truck breezes through the cab. The motor is a big part of the appeal of the Lil Red Express, and so its great to see this one looking maintained and with plenty hints of originality. They snuck a cop motor into the Lil Red Express, and so it made them the true hot one. This 360 cubic-inch V8 inhales through an upgraded Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. And youll never get tired of the sound from the exhaust stacks that offer a unique high-rise high-performance soundtrack. While this is meant to be the ultimate outlaw truck, it also came with the right tame driving features, like a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes w/discs up front. And those distinct gold-colored alloys have wide BF Goodrich T/As on them. Complete with title documentation, this Lil Red Express is the rare treat thats ready for work, play, or your next project build. So you get to choose your own adventure with this desirable Dodge Adventurer D150. Call now!
