1989 Toyota Pickup 2WD Xtracab Deluxe
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.

The truck was painted by Earl Scheib in Glendale. (See my Yelp review)
I have cared for the paint- it almost looks like it did when it was just painted.
If you do the math, 240,000 33 years…This vehicle has only been driven about 7272 miles a year.
Right after I purchased the truck from South-Lyn Auto Sales, in South Gate, I put a new Interstate battery in it at the Interstate Battery Store in San Gabriel.
The truck ran fine, until the alternator failed, My “go-to” mechanic, Sonny, at Econo Auto Center at 13332 Prarie Ave, Hawthorne, Ca. replaced it with a new alternator.
That new alternator also failed, and again, Sonny replaced it, under warranty, at no charge.
The trucks transmission failed, and Sonny was able to find a good used transmission.
The vehicle has run fine otherwise.
I have had the transmission fluid removed and replaced.
I had the radiator, and engine block’s coolant flushed in late 2020.
The tailpipe and muffler have been replaced.
I had a brake issue, a few months ago, and Neil’s Express Auto at 708 S Garfield Ave., Alhambra, Ca., found a defective brake system master cylinder, they removed and replaced it, as well as, all the brake systems fluid from the master cylinder to each wheel cylinder.
Neil’s also removed and replaced a main drive belt pulley, as well as, the main drive belt.

This truck has a somewhat heavy fiberglass shell, with two locking handles.
The blower fan doesn’t blow at the two lowest settings- the two highest settings work fine. It might just be the switch, or not.
A small piece of rubber has broken off above the lift gate on the shell’s hatchback.
The truck was painted at Earl Scheib in Glendale- (see my Yelp review.)
The matte black powder coat on the wheel lugs is beginning to wear due to the pneumatic wrenches used by mechanics.
The carpet is in surprisingly decent shape considering it’s 32 years old, but it is worn.
There is a section of the tailgate which, inadvertently, was not painted. (See my Yelp review of Earl Scheib’s in Glendale.)
