  1. 1980 Dodge Lil Red Express Clone. This is NOT an original Lil Red Express. 340 engine, Lunati VooDoo Cam, Edelbrock Performer RPM intake, Holley Carb, Comp Magnum roller rockers, ARP main studs, ARP head studs, ARP stainless engine fasteners outside motor, windage tray, Mellings high volume oil pump, Mellings double roller timing set, Denso mini-starter, Denso 85 amp mini-alternator, Taylor plug wires, Cal-Custom valve covers, Accel Ignition system with rev limiter, K&N air filter, coated shorty headers, full stainless steel exhaust with Magnaflow mufflers, A833 O/D four speed (.73 final gear ratio) 8 3/4 rear axle with 3.55 Sure Grip gears (clutch type not cone type). Cragar S/S wheels, McLeod clutch. All fasteners either stainless or grade 8 throughout. Classic Auto Air A/C, PS, PB. Boxed frame. KYB shocks, all new suspension parts throughout. New Brazilian teak bed floor with stainless strips. Helper air bags, class III trailer hitch with trailer brakes. Custom interior with bucket seats, aftermarket guages, sound and thermal barriers, CD player, Sirius Radio dock. Stainless brake lines, Holley fuel pump, AN fuel lines throughout (no rubber fuel lines) The truck has been FULLY frame off restored. The truck has about 5000 miles since it's restoration. While it is not an exact replica of an original Lil Red Express, it is a custom version. This truck is a lot of fun to drive. It gets about 16-17 mpg in overdrive on the highway. It will pull a full size car on a trailer. Literally no part of this truck has not been rebuilt or replaced during the restoration. Price is $17,000 or best offer. All reciepts from the restoration, all owner's manuals and directions for all aftermarket parts, and a factory service manual go with the truck. I have some spare parts (grille, original seats, spare console, etc) and a parts truck that go with the truck. Contact me at brianlegrandcooper@gmail.com For all the pictures of the restoration from the ground up please visit this website: http://bacooper.myphotoalbum.com/view_album.php?set_albumName=album02
  2. That's pretty cool! Are you going to put a hot motor in it? You could put a nasty Cossie in it like this one: http://www.mat.fi/project1929fordmodel-a.htm
  3. Mine is simple: 18 1957 Plymouths. All colors and body styles. Motors, trim, options, whatever. Just 18 1957 Plymouths.
  4. I've asked to be changed back. They don't return my e-mails. I just don't go there much anymore. Who has money to spend anyway?

He is reasonable and honest.
  6. Well... I have my truck, which is a HOT ROD: http://bacooper.myphotoalbum.com/view_album.php?set_albumName=album02 Then I have my wife's Camaro that is a HOT ROD: http://bacooper.myphotoalbum.com/view_album.php?set_albumName=album03 And I have my 57 Plymouth, that I plan to frame-off STOCK one day: http://bacooper.myphotoalbum.com/view_album.php?set_albumName=album10 So, I guess not. I'm too busy building HOT ROD cars right now.
  7. Wow, Carter and Johnson both had Amphicars. That is not a ringing endorsement for Amphicars.
  8. I once agreed to do a brake job on a Fiat X-19 sight unseen. The car came in with Michigan plates (I'm in South Carolina) I spent a solid week just trying to get the rusty parts off the right rear wheel. I gave up after that one wheel and sent it back.
  9. I have a Backyard Buddy. It is very convenient for anything that does not involve removing the tires. It can also be moved around the garage, so I am not tied to one bay. http://bacooper.myphotoalbum.com/view_photo.php?set_albumName=album10&id=Picture_016
  10. I've never used, nor am I advertising for Ultra One. I have looked at their website and it is intersting. I hate to see the car touched by anyone. It should be preserved, not restored.
  11. Just took a few shots of my ol' heap out on the street. Figured I would take advantage of some of the fall color. http://bacooper.myphotoalbum.com/view_album.php?set_albumName=album15
