This 1923 Dodge Babcock Custom Roadster is a one-off custom coachbuilt vehicle created by the H.H. Babcock Buggy Company. Henry H. Babcock was the head of the H.H. Babcock Company of Watertown, New York which was later incorporated as the H.H. Babcock Buggy Company. By 1909 they were in the business of manufacturing automobiles. Between 1909 to 1912 they produced hundreds of automobiles, along with Babcock carriages which were held in high regard for the craftsmanship and build quality. During World War I the company showed their support by manufacturing ambulance bodies and stretchers. The craftsmanship led them to gaining a reputation in the business as one of the finest producers of ambulances, hearses and a leader in the manufacture of coachwork automobile bodies.

This vehicle was on display at the 1923 New York Auto Show and in modern times, is the only remaining example with a Babcock body. It is in unrestored and original condition. It is in excellent mechanical and operating condition, and well maintained throughout the years. The body is covered in red fabric and matched with black fenders and hood, and no running boards. This vehicle has a motometer, drum headlamps, cowl lights, locking steering wheel, Budd/Michelin steel disc wheels with Firestone Non-Skid tires, rear mounted spare, and a rumble seat.

This one-off was brought to the Vintage Motor Cars sale at Hershey, PA presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $40,000 - $60,000 and was offered without reserve. The lot was sold for a high bid of $35,200.
