​1978 Dodge Li'l Red Express, Engine and Transmission only, $5000, 44,000 miles

I am testing the waters here, to see if there is anyone who wants this original 1978 Li’l Red Express 360hipo motor and 727 Loadflight Trans. I freshened it up, The carb will need a rebuild, it is sticky. This combo came out of a 44,000 original mile truck (I have the original title and bill of sale from the original owner), it was turned into an NHRA drag truck. I KNOW BEFORE YOU FREAK ON ME, I DID NOT DO IT!!!

The original owner, who purchased it new in 78, decided he wanted to go in the 10s and pulled the motor, trans, and other original items. Added a roll cage, 5 point harnesses, built TransKing 727 behind an even more built 440.

The original motor and trans went onto dollies and were covered in the climate-controlled garage, where they sat. I purchased the truck and all the parts to see about going back to stock, but it is too much fun in its current form. I am running 12.001 at 107, on just motor. Plus it would cost more to put back to stock than it would be worth.

So, maybe someone is doing a stock restoration and needs a complete matching numbers drivetrain. Original Thermoquad Carb, intake, exhaust manifolds, distributor, coil, accessories

Block is stamped 8W360TI6145, no stamp on the pad above the oil pan (as it was with only the LRE trucks) the trans is PK4028822 6040 0631. Everything else is original, if you need me to decode everything, you probably do not need this motor.

I think a good starting point is $5,000. Will consider trades for an RV or partial trade for RV.  I live in Tampa Fl. Can deliver anywhere in Florida.

Truck built on Friday, June 16th, 1978

Engine built on Thursday, May 25th, 1978

Trans. built on Friday, February, 9th, 1978
