1979 Dodge D150 Li'l Red Express High-Performance Pickup-the first factory produced muscle truck. This one is done; all wood new: box floor, side wood. The exterior paint glistens in its beautiful bright red and the chrome bumpers shine as they did from day one. The truck shows absolutely no signs of rust. This is one example of only 5,118 produced. All were offered in one color-Red. Interiors were available in black or red with bench or bucket configurations with a fold down console; which this one has. Interior choices and a limited-slip rear end were the only options available.
Power is produced from a high-performance 360 V8 225 HP, identical to the Dodge Police Car Engines, accomplished by an aggressive cam, heavy valve springs, cold air intake and more. A performance modified 727 Load Flite Auto with a 3.55:1 axle ration-and not forget the twin diesel style exhaust stacks.
So if you want performance in an eye-catching package and all at an affordable price, this is a turn-key fun investment.

The dealership is owned by a Ford dealer who's passion for classic and muscle cars goes back some 50 years of collecting and enjoying. All of the vehicles offered for sale are owned, treated and maintained more as a personal collection rather than just a classic auto dealer. Many of the cars offered for sale have been in my personal collection for years. And as the owner realizes his age its time to thin the heard a bit. All of the vehicles featured are stored in climate controlled warehouses. -Gary C. Showalter Owner
