No, it has the factory engine, side markers on the truck says 396 but everyone knows that they still called the 402's 396 in '72.

Back in the day, no one called the 396 a 402, they called it a 396, just has a better ring to it.

But the 'real' ones are the 1945-1961 Powerwagons.

Had me an '85 crew cab 4x4 for a few years. Pretty rare, but probably never be "worth" anything. Crew cabs were mostly gub'ment trucks. Bare bones, vinyl seat stuff.

4.10 Dana 60s front and rear, NP205 case, 360 4bbl, etc. Didn't pull like a diesel, but went through snow like mthrfkr. Had people ask me if it was for sale all the time, leaving notes on the wipers, etc.

As for the 'Lil Red Express, it was the fastest domestic vehicle in 1979, I believe (faster than the Corvette), but Dodge trucks will never be worth anything so even if you have a 'Lil Red Express you might as well get what you can for it right now.

Most real collectibles? Old model A's and 1937 -1940 Fords. We have always hotrodded them with Chev 350's and 350/ 400 trans, Nova rearends, mustang II front ends. Absolutely crappy/dangerous to drive stock. Fat Fenders!! Nothing else continues to hold any valve.

I used to work at Park City Resort. In the summer and fall, we'd drive one of those up and down the ski slopes so we could work on the pipes that supplied water to the snow making machines. They are the ultimate 4x4 pickup.

I'm pretty sure that the 396 badges were supposed to be a 1970 transition. I've seen '70 trucks with both (note that '69 body trucks are very similiar to '70 model as well) and all '71-72 big blocks I've seen have the 400 badge. Not to say it couldn't be a holdover.

The displacement was significant becuase above 400 CID is where insurance companies raised rates at the time. Chevy tried to pretend it wasn't over 400 but it didn't work. This is the same reason that IH pretended the AMC 401 V8, offered in light trucks in 73-75 (in addition to the normal IH powerplanes), was a 400.

'73 was the 454, although rumors persist that a very few '72 pickups made it out with 454s during the transition.


The '72 Longhorn I looked at had a 402 in it as well, C/20 with 400 badges.

I've never seen a badged "402" on a GM truck. I've seen the "400" but that was different engine than the 396-402.

Chevy/GMC short wheelbase from 67/72 are hot items around here. I have had a 70 GMC swb for 18 years. Needs work, tho. In fact, I've been thinking about selling it because I don't have a place to keep it.

The 402s also got the 400 badge along with the small block 400.

Dad had 2 of them. The Cameos were made 55-58 and had a fleetside using fiberglass sides. They were the first of the more street oriented trucks coming with automatics and more options than more work oriented trucks. The are getting rather rare today but forgotten too.

Not the most collectible, but I always favored the Dodge Sweptside trucks of the late 50s. Don't see too many nowadays.

This is my '49 F100 which is also my favorite old truck style. When I go to shows there is rarely another '49 there.

2004 Hatboro Car show:

I also still use it as a truck. Building a retaining wall in 2001:

Overall, however, they are not worth very much. Just fun!
