*****​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

Truck located in Hamilton, IL

​1979 Dodge Li'l Red Express Truck, $13,500, Odometer reads 48,330 miles.

This is pretty much a rust free truck. It has original wood on the outside of the bed and it’s possible inside the bed has original wood. This is an A/C truck but it doesn’t work.
The compressor has been removed. Parts that are not original are wheels (Billet American Racing), the carburetor (JEGS 600) and the distributor (MSD) and the alternator. Original engine and trans.
As you can see the truck has no bumpers. Previous owner had wood bumpers and I took those off. It is a good driver...runs, stops and drives well. Interior is in good shape. The truck has a temp and oil gauge but the other gauges do not work. Truck has no radio. Passenger side window does not roll up and down. Overall this is a good solid truck.
