Production of the Li’l Red Express was 5,118 in 1979. Most of the features remained from the 1978 model, but there were some changes that included a catalytic converter, unleaded gas and an 85 mph speedometer. The most noticeable changes were the flat hood and dual square headlights replacing the round versions, and the 1979 models rode on raised white-letter tires mounted to eight-inch chrome wheels.
This is a three-owner truck with 78,950 original miles. It has great paint, and it’s all stock. Meticulously maintained and fitted with new tires. All-original paperwork includes build sheet, bill of sale and owner’s books. The truck drives great, and the wood trim is outstanding along with the bed, chrome and trim. Fully serviced and detailed.
