1978 Dodge Lil’ Red Express Truck

In 1978 when Dodge released the Lil Red Express Truck they put Detroit truck makers on the mat. This truck pretty much put some gingerbread on parts that already existed, added some decals and special cosmetics and BAM they created a formula that worked on trucks just as well as tape and stripe packages had worked on cars all through the 70’s. You can re live the summer of ’78 with this 1978 Dodge Lil’ Red Express Truck for $17900 in Atascadero, CA via craigslist.

The view from all angles on this truck shows beautiful glossy red paint, and wood trim in great shape. The bed wood is in like new shape, and the twin smoke stacks are present and accounted for.

The engine bay shows a new AC compressor, and a super cool dual snorkel air cleaner.

The interior is in great shape with nice dark red vinyl and door panels that are a natural for the bright red exterior.
