Daytona, L’il Red Express return

by David Zatz on

According to our source of Las Vegas news, Nick, Chrysler is bringing back the Little Red Express truck. These were Chrysler’s last classic muscle cars, equipped with the 360 cubic inch V8 engine, the cam from a 1968 340 V8, a police carburetor, intake, and windage tray, dual exhausts, a cold air intake, and numerous other changes. The truck was reportedly Tom Hoover’s idea, and the concept version was prepared by Hoover, Dick Maxwell, and Dave Koffel.

The Dodge Charger Daytona is also returning, in Daytona Blue, white, black, and gray. The 2006 Dodge Charger Daytona was essentially a retuned, restyled Charger, adding $2,500 to the price of the Charger R/T, with different additional engine and suspension tuning. While now in the same league as the 200-mph original 1970 Dodge Charger Daytona, it was nonetheless a popular package among enthusiasts, if not a best seller.
