Vehicle Description

This 1979 Dodge Lil Red Express pickup with a fresh body-on restoration completed four years ago. Original metal and interior. This truck has never been in an accident or has had any rust. The 1979 Lil Red Express is powered by an EH1 360ci high-performance Chrysler LA small-block engine based on the car division E58 police engine with upgrades. The upgrades included a 68 340 Chrysler LA small-block camshaft with a 276 duration, .484 lift and 48-degree overlap. Then a double roller timing chain and gear set was added for durability. A set of 360 high-flow heads, featuring 1.88/1.62 valves, helped move gas in and out. It used a forged crankshaft with 8:4:1 flat top pistons and featured a bore of 4.00 inches and a stroke of 3.58 inches. Also, Chrysler topped the package by using a 850 cfm Carter Thermoquad 4-barrel carburetor, with bigger primaries and secondaries than the police version of the carburetor. The engine is paired with a 3-speed automatic transmission. The factory like-new interior retains the original red appointments. Every option, gauge and switch works as it should. The truck is air-conditioning equipped but does need to be serviced. This is a restored piece of Dodge history. The original Build Sheet goes with the sale. This is a great-running truck that looks fantastic.
