By 1919 Dodge was producing nearly 500 automobiles per day which equated to around 106,000 vehicles per year. This was also the year that Dodge produced its 400,000th vehicle.
New for 1919 were five window coupes, custom-built limousines, four-door sedans and town car taxicabs.

This 1919 Dodge Brothers Sedan was the last automobile owned and driven by automotive pioneer John F. Dodge, who formed Dodge Brothers, Inc. in 1914 with his younger brother, Horace.
In their youth, the two worked side-by-side at their father's machine shop in Niles, MI and later became the first major supplier to the emerging automotive industry.
John died in January of 1920, at the age of 55.
His widow donated this car to the Detroit Historical Museum in 1952 and later left their 1,500-acre estate, Meadow Brook Farm, to the State of Michigan. Today, the property is home to Oakland University.
