If it were only a 1978 Warrior, Midnight Express or a Lil' Red Express...

I've always wanted one of these redone as a restomod with a full-tilt Hemi attached .



Good Luck with your find

They are rare, fairly collectible and reasonably priced if you can find one that hasn't been destroyed...although I've never seen one with the resto-mod treatment and an old school 426 Hemi.

Ok , I phone the guy say I'm on my way up, it's I'm gonna say 3 hour drive as it's closer to 3 than 2 1/2 hours, I thinking if I get my toe down we can do it in two maybe two and half hours, we're way into the trip I get a phone call sorry I've changed my mind I don't want to sell the truck now!!!!
Really!! You have gone to the trouble of advertising it and answering my emails!! And I was on my way up. Not a happy bunny, maybe it was for the best maybe a better truck is on its way to me????
