1949 Dodge Meadowbrook

The Dodge Meadowbrook was produced from 1949 to 1954. It was similar to the Coronet, but differed in levels of trim and equipment. For 1949, it was the base trim level and only available as a four-door sedan.

For 1949, Dodge began giving their vehicles modern model names rather than numbers and letter codes - or using the worlds Standard or Deluxe. Power for all Dodges was from a 103 horsepower six-cylinder engine that was fed through a Stromberg single-barrel carburetor. It would continue to have this setup and the same horsepower rating through 1953. Fluid-Drive was standard, and a new optional transmission, Gyromatic, was available. Other options included turn signals, clock, radio, heater and white wall tires. Another feature were the 'Safe-Guard Hydraulic Brakes' which included two cylinder per front brake.

For 1949, the Meadowbrook was an important vehicle, accounting for 30% of Dodge's sales.
