Dodge Other Pickups 1979 Description

1979 Dodge Mopar Lil Red Express, Low Miles and Very Rare!

This vehicle was originally purchased in California and is a one family owned vehicle which has been in Nevada for the past few years and stored in a garage. Considering that this is a desert vehicle you will not find any rust or damage on the body panels or underneath the vehicle. There is some surface rust on the exhaust pipes but there are kits you can find on the internet to replace for a few hundred bucks.

The truck is in great overall condition, the exterior is very clean as it appears to have been repainted a few year's back. There is some fading on the hood of the truck but with some care and the right buffing the truck should shine as new.

The chrome is really nice all around with no pitting or peeling, and the wood paneling is in very good shape and also looks as though it was replaced as under the bed the panels look brand new. The seats are in immaculate condition and look almost brand new.

The carpet cleaned up nicely after the detail last week but would use a proper shampoo and extraction if you would want the carpet to be perfect. It does appear to be the original carpet. If you wanted to replace this there are kits that can be purchased for a few hundred bucks and would be a direct fit.

The engine runs very strong and starts right up and idles just as it should. The carb was just cleaned out with new fuel lines put in and other hoses. The transmission shifts as it should but has not been gone through in a while. The truck does not leak any fluid whatsoever so all seals are good.

The tires on the truck would need replacing as well as an alignment. I have the original radio that came with the truck and will include in the auction. The battery that is currently in the truck would need a good charge as well as it might be a little too small for the truck. The rear taillights have to be hooked up and some of the fuses replaced. The doors will close but there is no second key to lock them so a lock set would need to be purchased.

This is a really rare find folks, an original Lil Red Express. It is not a 15k mile showroom piece but a really nice truck that could be show winner someday!

Don't let this one get away!

Thanks for looking!
