The 1979 Dodge D150 Lil Red Express is the bold outlaw that got us hooked on sports trucks. So when you can find an example that continues to have strong V8 power and keeps all the distinctive details, you know its the kind of pickup for those who love to drive their classic and turn heads doing / brbr The Dodge boys were truly flying in the face of regulations as they allowed their cop motor to hit the streets. A loophole let it go into trucks, so they decided to be as bold as possible with their defiance. Thats how you get a Canyon Red pickup with glossy oak wood bolted to the sides. And oh yeah, there are two gleaming vertical exhaust stacks extending above the roof line. But being a rebel didnt come cheap, and Dodge only sold around 5,120 in 1979 - the final year of this rare two-year offering. This example show a life of good care. It looks like there was a restoration around mid-way so the bold red paint still has a nice gloss. Plus, the special golden graphics have a crisp appearance as they coordinate with the real wood bolted to the bed. Also speaking of real wood, theres plenty more glossy lumber on the be floor. And with plenty of brightwork shining on the grille, chrome bumpers, upgraded side steps, and slotted mag wheels, it a total package that commands / brbr The interior is the ideal mix of pickup and performance, and the seat shows this off the best.

And you get a grippy sports steering wheel that gives you an excellent view of the driver-oriented / brbr The legend of the Lil Red Express is all about the motor, so its great to lift the hood and see a stock-style presentation with many verified correct parts. In fact, its believed to still have the original block. This is Dodges might 360 cubic-inch cop motor that includes Super-Flow heads, dual air intakes, and a remanufactured large four-barrel carburetor. And yes, those vertical exhaust stacks really do give this a unique high-rise, high-performance soundtrack. More than just a mean V8, the whole presentation looks great. The A727 three-speed automatic is a stout unit, and it sends the power to a 3.55 limited-slip rear end. And this a nice all-around driver thanks to power steering and power brakes with discs up / brbr Complete with maintenance records, this is the powerful outlaw that makes sure it knows how to arrive in style.
