1979 Dodge Li'l Red Express Truck, $10,500

I bought this about three months ago, and original plans were to make it a fast LRE and drop my Big Block in it and drop the truck down a few inches but the original motor runs to good and the truck is too solid and nice just to make it another hot rod so I'm just going to find another truck that’s not going to hurt the value of by doing so. The truck was painted about 5/6 yrs ago and never got completely put back together.
They put new bed wood on it, new carpet, partial new exhaust pipe, it still needs a few items like exhaust shields (it has shields on it but if you look close you can see they are too short.) needs a couple of exhaust body mount brackets.  Needs the LRE stripe kit, Needs a rear bumper. I have a new front bumper. I have all the new rubber for doors and windows. 
The front and back windows have already been put in with gaskets.
The front windshield is new. I have side windows and regulators but they
will need installed. Emblems and mirrors need to be put back on.  This truck runs good and the paint still looks nice, it has a couple of nicks here and there, even though it’s been on there as long as it has, it still shines up nice.
I have the original intake and TQ carb
and original wheels, they will clean up nice but not perfect.
I also have a new wheel with original tire that was a wall hanger at a dodge dealership for yrs. that will be included.  The aftermarket wheels in pictures are not included. 10,500.00 or possible Mopar trades (but only a driver no projects).

*****​Pair of 1979 Dodge Li'l Red Express Trucks, can be bought together or seperately*****

***Both can be packaged together for $10,000 OBO***

(1.) ​1979 Dodge Li'l Red Express Truck, Nickname "Ratty"  $8500 OBO

'79 Li'l "Ratty" Red Express. Fresh 360 built by the late Jack Evans at JRE in Keokuk; slightly hotter than stock and done right-this is the best part of the truck. 
Chassis Resto done in '08-'09 with all new Eurathane Body bushings, Stainless lines from Right Stuff Detailing, Brakes, bearings, shocks, and stainless steel
hardware throughout;

This chassis is the second best thing about the truck.

The truck was in storage from '09-'15 so there's a good

amount of barn dust throughout but it will all clean up. 

The oak on the bed floor is mostly original with a

few boards replaced. There is also a 30g fuel cell in the

bed that is the current supply for the truck. The original

tank is included but not installed. Ratty was built with

all of the best parts from both of my LRE trucks.

Edelbrock top end-Carb, performer intake, valve covers 

and air cleaner. A/C system is installed with 134A

compatible oil but not charged. Lots of new parts

throughout. Starts right up and runs/shifts good; Less than 50 miles on it. Black interior, tuff wheel, buddy seat with console. Included are 4 LRE 5-slot wheels. Needs the body and interior work
done...or drive it with patina and not worry about door dings and scratches. Good factory exhaust with solid stacks and aftermarket tips. 

Asking $8500 or best reasonable offer. I have been working on this truck since 2007. I have a clear title and nearly every part needed to finish this truck (included).
Come take a look...this is not a piece of junk. This is a legit 9S Li'l Red Express truck with VIN plates attached. I also have a lot of extra parts that can be included in the sale

1978 Dodge Li'l Red Express, $14,500 OBO 

 Owner can deliver the truck for an agreed price.  The bed floor needs replacing with either original pine, painted red, or with a varnished oak.  The truck is a basically unrestored truck and in fantastic shape, Ziebarted and only stored inside.  This motivated owner needs to buy a snowplow truck and must sell this fine example of a Li'l Red, way below market value. A real rust-free buy for someone wanting a nice '78 LI'l Red to start with.  (See pictures!!)
