Speedy Survivor: 1979 Dodge Li’l Red Express

1979-dodge-lil-red-express

Even with high fuel prices, trucks are still some of the best-selling vehicles here in the States. We love our trucks here in America and the only thing that makes a truck better is to make it more powerful, faster, and louder. High performance trucks have been around for a while. When Dodge introduced the Li’l Red Express in 1978, it was the fastest American production vehicle built that year. The seller of this 1979 Li’l Red Truck claims it’s a survivor. Check it out for yourself here on eBay, where it is being offered with a BIN of $15,000. Read more »

The photos of this 1969 Coronet R/T may have caught our attention, but the 426 Hemi option piqued our interest. That engine could put out an amazing 425 horses! The seller claims that it only has 55k miles on the clock and that it’s numbers matching. There isn’t much rust either, but something just doesn’t seem right. The car is located in New York and it’s listed for sale here on eBay. Read more »

Parade Car: 1958 Dodge Coronet Survivor

For one day in July everything shuts down in my hometown and everyone attends a big parade. There are plenty of floats and candy, but my favorite part has always been the classic cars. Sometimes a beauty queen or politician would be in the back, but that did not interest me much. I was excited to see these pristine classics because their owners only brought them out once a year. This 1958 Dodge Coronet is just one of those cars and it only has 9,369 miles on the odometer  to prove it. The car is located in Northbrook, Illinois and is listed for sale on eBay with bidding currently at $3,550. Read more »
