DESCRIPTION:
This was a very limited production run model. Built only between 1978 and 1980. To get around stringent new environmental
and pollution standards in the late 70's, the Dodge Little Red Express allowed certain performance enhancements and more
horse power because it was classified as a truck. The most prominent design feature of this model are the twin exhaust stacks
that rise vertically right behind the cab, like a semi truck. The other features are a tuned 360 Magnum engine which was
second only to the Chevrolet Corvette that year in terms of raw horsepower. Because of its limited production run and
outlandish design, these trucks are becoming more and more sought after. It has appeared on several lists of future collectible
muscle car
