      I don't know, but that is a sweet looking truck. Dodge did have a lot of special edition trucks in that time period...like The Little Red Express, Warlock, etc. Some were just decal packages, but a few like The Little Reds had some trues add on stuff. And welcome to the site.

        Welcome to the site! That's a cool truck indeed! They had True Spirit trucks in the 79's can't remember the years, but I know we talked about it here at one time. I'll see if I can dig it up.

        I have seen the pin strip on the side panels, but thats the first on a hood.
        Those were the years Dodge made a special effort to get trucks in the hands of those just to drive (non-work trucks). Hi performance cars were a thing of the past and trucks were not regulated yet.

        Canada and a Dodge truck? Any idea how that happened?

        Found the link I found for @jetmech a while back.

        Just A Car Guy: I just learned of Dodge Trucks I've never heard of before

        You have to scroll down to the blurp about the True Spirit trucks. They were sold in California and Arizona when new, how one ended up in Toronto is anyone's guess. One thing I've noticed in viewing the internet, is there are '79 True Spirit trucks out there, whereas the author says they only went through '78. Either he has his years wrong, or someone's making clones if something no one knows about... Maybe I'll find more.

        I would have expected the Canadian truck to have been a Plymouth. I do know we had a 74 Plymouth van in the states in 74. I don't remember the agreement. So its quite possibly Dodge trucks were sold in Canada in the 70s.

        I remember this truck from 1995 in Sault Ste. Marie Ontario.
        Owner was Lee Joliceur. He took me for a ride, it was pretty awesome, it had 4.56 gears, 3500 stall 727 with manual shift valve body. 440 with closed chamber heads, 509 Mopar purpleshaft cam, Edelbrock dual quad, which he sold me. Centerline convo pros, exactly how it looks in your pics
        Is your truck for sale by chance?

        Your 1977 dodge reminds me to also like blue cars. Been having black or silver cars since my college days but this blue really looks a true Mopar fan.
