1920 Dodge Brothers Model 30 news, pictures, specifications, and information
In 1914, the Dodge Brothers began building their own cars. With appropriate funds, they were able to design and build a very popular and reliable automobile that were price more than the Ford Model T but less than other competitor's vehicles. Sadly, both brothers died during 1920 and in 1928 the company was purchased by the Chrysler Corporation and the vehicle was renamed Dodge in 1930.
Most of the Dodge Brother automobiles were open touring cars or roadsters. This example is a rare Enclosed Coach was one of the first bodies built for Dodge by the Budd Company in Detroit. Most of the Enclosed Coach vehicles (Sedans) were constructed with wood frames. This example is constructed with a welded-steel inner structure.
With the tragic death of both brothers in 1920, the company passed into the control of investment bankers and was then acquired by Chrysler in 1928. In addition to building complete cars, Dodge also sold chassis with an engine, cowl and fenders for use by custom body builders.
This car is the only example of this style of speedster in existence and its early ownership is unknown. It is equipped with an early 1920s Roots-type supercharger with a pressurized fuel system and auxiliary oil tank. It was discovered as a 'basket case', but complete with the supercharger and gauges.
This car is believed by Dodge experts to be a custom-built speedster rather than a re-bodied car. While the chassis and engine were manufactured in 1920, the car has parts produced as late as 1925. It may have been built by a dodge Brothers dealer as a promotional car.
The car has been carefully restored to its original yellow hue and authentic brass trim.

|The look on Bruce McLaren's face as he climbed from his GT40 would be one of stark contrast to the rest of those with the Ford team. It was clear who the winner was, and yet, confusing as well. In the midst of one of the most demonstrative and authoritative victories in Le Mans history, McLaren and his co-driver Chris Amon would find themselves the beneficiaries of a saga that upset the team management at Ford as much as Ferrari's presence. It was an all-out effort. Tremendous amounts of capi...[Read more...]|
