1979 Dodge Lil Red Express Upgrades
1979 Dodge Lil Red Express
The owner of this limited production (2 years, 7500+- units) Dodge pickup brought this vehicle in for some performance and comfort upgrades. We shall be rebuilding the engine with aluminum heads and intake, roller cam and lifters, headers and electronic fuel injection. An expected increase of horsepower to 400 and torque to 390 ft/lbs will enhance the truck’s driveability (and fun!).
To make the truck more comfortable on hot summer days, we shall also be installing air conditioning.
Keep an eye on this page as we begin the process of upgrading the mechanicals and installing the a/c.
