1928 Dodge Brothers Model M Victory Six news, pictures, specifications, and information

Sport Phaeton
 
Horace and John Dodge founded their precision machining company in Detroit in 1900 and quickly found work producing engine and chassis components for Olds Motor Vehicle and Ford Motor Company among others. They were very successful and built a strong reputation for quality so their decision in 1914 to introduce their first Dodge car, the Model 30, with the industry's first all-steel body, 12-volt electrical system and a sliding gear transmission, met with quick success reaching 2nd place in U.S. sales by 1916. 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.

The Victory Six was offered by Dodge in honor of the 10th anniversary of World War I. It was Dodge's first six cylinder car and offered with hydraulic brakes, unique for a low-priced car. It featured an all-steel body built by Budd Manufacturing. This was at a time when most auto manufacturers still used composite metal and wood bodies. Its six-cylinder engine produced 68 horsepower.

This was the factory show car that was displayed at Dodge at the 1928 automobile shows. It is painted Beetle Green and Yorkshire Tan with Vermillion wheels and pin striping. It features a tan, shark grain leather interior and tan top.
