All you need to do is enjoy this fine example of a classic sport truck. Dodge released the Li’l Red Express Truck In 1978. It is one of the most unique trucks that Dodge has ever produced. The Li’l Red Express was not only a real looker, but these trucks were also real performers. In 1978 The Dodge Li’l Red Express was the fastest American made vehicle from 0 to 100 MPH, as tested by Car and Driver magazine. Because of a loophole in the emissions regulations, the 1978 Dodge Li’l Red Express Truck did not have catalytic converters. What the Li’l Red Express did have was a special High Performance 360 C.I. 4-barrel big block engine (EH1), which was a modified version of the 360 police engine (E58), producing 225 net horsepower @ 3800 RPM. The package also included Hemi style mufflers with a crossover pipe breathing through 2 chrome stacks located behind the cab, a special 727 transmision and 3.55:1 rear gearing. The 1978 Dodge Li’l Red Express Truck rode on GR60x15 raised white letter tires on 7-inch Chrome wheels up front and LR60x15 on 8-inch chrome wheels on the rear. For 1978 there was no spare included. All Dodge Li’l Red Express Trucks were automatics, and the interiors were available with a standard bench seat in red or black, or with optional buckets and a fold down arm/rest console. All 1978 and some early 1979 Dodge Li’l Red Express Trucks used the “Tuff” steering wheel. With the success of the 1978 Dodge Li’l Red Express Truck, production of the 1979 Dodge Li’l Red Express Truck was increased to 5,118. Most of the features remained unchanged for 1979, however there were some changes which included an 85 MPH speedometer. But the most noticeable changes on the 1979 edition were the new flat hood and dual square headlights, replacing the round versions on 1978 Dodge Li’l Red Express Truck. And the 1979’s rode on LR60x15 raised white letter tires on 8-inch chrome wheels on all 4 corners.
