My 1978 Li'l Red Express

(Story of how I came to own my Li'l Red Express)


"Li'l Red Dad" was the name given to me by my daughter when she realized I was a total "nut" about the Dodge Li'l Red Express Trucks.  
Important safety, restoration  & mechanical information pertaining to the 1978 & 1979Dodge Li'l Red Express Truck.

The Misc. Information page has some really NEAT stuff!!



To help in finding out how many Li'l Red's are still in existence and what equipment they came with, we are asking everyone to fill out the "TRUCK REGISTRY" information form.  You can download the form from this link, "TRUCK REGISTRY"  

Or you can email pics of your:  

VIN plate (drivers door on '78,  door jamb on '79)  and Certification Label on the driver's door jamb, both years


With this information, I will be able to tell you the exact month, day & hour your truck was built.
