1978 Dodge Li'l Red Express, $53,000, Total Restoration, Gold Class National Winner

​2008 NALRETO Concours Gold Award Winner with a perfect score of 400 judged by "Lil Red Dad" himself, John Roberts.  Truck has been  stored in a climate controlled environment since judged in June of 2008.  Only 100 miles or less since restored.  Truck underwent an almost 3 year, $75K nut and bolt restoration where no expense was spared and no detail overlooked.  Everything is either new or rebuilt.  95% of all parts used were NOS.   The only exceptions were some internal engine parts, nuts and bolts, carpet, seat covers, bed wood and a few exhaust components.  Frame, suspension, and brackets all powder coated.  Has original tires for show and a set of tires and rims for driving.  Truck was dynamo metered (dynoed) and have printout verifying results.  Also included is a collection of everything pertaining to the truck (ERTL Diecast Model, 40 magazine collection, two 1978 parts books, 1978 dealer master parts price book,  3 service manuals, AMT model new in box, judging manual and more).  Comes with a cover, all history on the truck (purchased in Gravenhurst Ontario Canada), all restoration receipts, and over 1,000 photos documenting the restoration.  The truck is just as it was judged in 2008 and has been started religiously every 2 weeks.  The only problems with this truck is the front and rear seals have dried out from lack of use and need to be replaced and the driver's side door decals has started to lift (I have the decal).  More pictures and information available upon request.  Serious inquiries only please.
