For Sale: 1978 Dodge D/W Series in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

Here's a special truck that only Dodge would build, the 1978 Lil Red Express. Special because, as Car & Driver stated, it was the fastest American-made vehicle 0-100mph available that year. This one is amazingly original including its sheetmetal and paint, along with the 360 cubic inch V8 engine. It's mated to the A-727 LoadFlite automatic transmission. '78 Expresses have several unique features, so let's check them. Of course, the aforementioned 360 Express engine, a special dual exhaust system with functional chrome stacks, crossover pipe and Hemi mufflers; and staggered chrome wheels - 7 inches wide in front, 8 inches in back. The '78 featured a 100 mph speedometer vs 85 mph on the '79, and the '78's Bright Canyon Red paint is unique as well. The graphics and wood trim also distinguish the truck. This example also features the Tuff 3-spoke steering wheel and the optional bucket seats with fold-down center armrest. It has a premium cloth bed cover and inside a fire extinguisher is on board. These are hard to find, especially in this kind of original condition, as only 2188 were produced in 1978, versus 5118 in 1979. The 1978 Dodge Lil Red Express pickup combines performance, unique appearance, and comfort, and is a very desirable and collectible vehicle today.
