1925 Dodge Brothers
1925 Dodge Brothers Tourer
1925 Dodge Brothers Tourer
John and Horace Dodge established their first machine shop in 1900, and their talents were quickly noticed by several pioneers of the early motor car—Ransom E. Olds and Henry Ford—whose companies bought engines, transmissions, and axles from the Dodge Brothers. By 1913, the brothers realized that they were capable of building their own automobile, an awareness that happily coincided with Henry Ford deciding to move production of his cars' components in-house.
For consignment a beautiful 1925 Dodge Brothers Tourer. Convertible top, 4 doors, enclosed steel wheels and running boards, we are back in 1925 and enjoying every minute of it. Cue the Charleston music and bob your hair we can still get a drink!
This car was built on August 26th or 27th in 1925. Originally the exterior was black and has now been sanded up to be a cream upper body and gray fenders and running boards. A nice shiny radiator surround/grille is flanked by 2 massive headlights with dark gray casings. A twin bar bumper protects this front end. 4 doors for easy front and rear access both latching at a B pillar. Curved fenders held together by a common running board are painted in the dark gray. A black canvas ragtop hangs off the back of this car, and you could not get anymore ragtime/flapper looking when looking at this car from its sides. On the rear hangs a spare tire and another dual bar curved bumper is below for rear protection. 20-inch artillery wheels are on all 4 corners and are painted in the cream to contrast to the fenders. 6.00-20 tires wrap these solid metal disc wheels.
Tan vinyl covers the interior surfaces like the door panels seen with a pouch in the center for more storage. A front and rear bench with a wrap around back and tuck and roll inserts float in a pristine rubber gray floor. A black dash with simple instrumentation floats under a cream dash top all in full metal jacket. The large steering wheel is a restored wood rimmed wheel with 4 metal central spokes. The top moves up and down manually with ease.
Opening the cowled hood 212.3ci of flathead 4-cylinder engine in nice restored condition nearly looking showroom, with mint green block and valve cover, and some black and brass attachments. A 1-barrel carburetor feeds the 4-cylinder and a 3-speed manual transmission is attached to the back. Rear axle is a 4.54.
A critical eye was laid on to this undercarriage with now nice black paint, solid frame and body hangers all rust free. Some wood for the floorpans and mechanical drum brakes on the rear, simple but effective is the word. Leaf springs are the suspension all around.
I love these roaring 20' styled cars with their long ragtops, solid wheels and running boards. This one started nicely and ran like a top. Smooth shifting and mechanical brakes need their time to stop, but get the job done in the end. Easy to drive and a great looker and head turner top up or top down…HEE HAW!
A very nice example from 1925, tastefully painted, painstakingly restored, and mechanically sound. Stop in, walk the halls, find this car, buy it and turn the key and drive away to years of enjoyment…the work is already done!
