Dodge Other Pickups 1978 Description

The L’ilRedTruckwas introduced by Dodge in March 1978 following the release of such self-proclaimed“adult toys”as the Dodge Warlock. The Warlock had been essentially a showy truck with the fattires bucket seats and wood trim that had once been popular among muscle car owners; the L’ilRed Truckwas to be the “Red Warlock”but the name changed along the way.

The L’il Red Express Truck was built by SVI under the leadership of Mike Koran. SVI also did the M4S car and testing for Direct Connection. —Marc Rozman

Engineered for speed the LittleRedTruckwas built on the short-wheelbase (115 inch) Utiline-style half-ton D150 with a 6050 pound gross vehicle weight but the real attraction was the high performance 360 V8 breathing through a four-barrelcarburetor pushing power to the ground through a 3.55:1 9.25 inch rear axle bereft of most pollution control equipment. According to Dodge the E58-specification (police) engine was equipped with SuperFlow heads a police cam (252° duration with 33° of overlap) dual-snorkel air intakeheavydutyvalvesprings cold air induction and big dual exhausts departing big-rig-style just aft of the cab. The modifiedA-727transmission (standard and required) had a 2500rpmstallconverter. The truck itself required the Adventurer package.

Newly painted and bed flooring restored.
