John and Horace Dodge had been involved in the automotive industry long before producing high quality automobiles with their own name on them. The Dodge brothers had been one of the most important suppliers to the young Ford Motor Company, and their parts were found on dozens of other pioneering marques. From the time their first cars hit the road in 1914, the sales were strong and their products were among the best on the road. Styling was still in its infancy, but the Dodge had a distinctive look and its dependability would win it legions of dedicated customers.
By 1926, with both of the Dodge Brothers having passed and their widows having sold the company, the sales position had dropped to 5th place, still a commendable achievement with over 30 brands of automobile actively on the market. The Series 126 models were basically unchanged from the previous season, however there were a number of small improvements. Just over 265,000 vehicles were produced by Dodge that year with the popular touring car posting a price of $875 FOB Detroit.
We are proud to offer this sturdy and authentically restored Touring Car which is finished, as most cars were at the time, in Hi-Gloss Black with black leather seating, folding top and the very desirable disc wheels. This vehicle appears to have been restored a number of years ago but has been kept in an climate controlled museum-like atmosphere which has preserved its freshness. It is reported to run out well, but some detailing, particularly in the engine compartment would be helpful. It is fitted with full-disc 21: wheels, whitewall tires, front bumper and the Dodge branded winged Moto-Meter radiator mascot. It also has full factory instrumentation on the dash plus a vintage properly mounted clock. This Touring car also had the desirable two-piece windshield which was phased out during the model year, was well as soft and supple seating for up to five passengers comfortably. Ready for the show and go of the collector car world, this is one Dodge that deserves to be in your garage.
