COOL CLASSIC, 212 CI, MANUAL, 12 VOLT, GOOD PAINT & INTER, GREAT SHOWROOM PIECE!
The Dodge 116 series was known for is ruggedness, but this one seems to want to show off its style, too. With a great color combination and authentic details, this is the showpiece of any showroom.
There's a secret to why you can't stop staring at this two-tone red and black. The paint is a few years old now, and that's a big part of this Dodge's charm. It has an appearance that draws people to it in a way perfection just couldn't. They like how the paint has a soft shine and a look of history about it, as if it could be original and with 90+ years of stories to tell. One tale we know is that you should take note of the all-steel body – a specialty of the Dodge Brothers and one of the first for its time. It looks honest like most cars of the '20s seem to, and while the Dodge was still an affordable everyman's car, they managed a few upscale touches. The solid wheels, running board steps, and taller grille design that was new for 1924, all love to attract attention today. This one even wears the double bar bumpers that were optional nine decades ago.
The Dodge Brothers were out to show Henry Ford they could offer better comfort to the mass market, and the interior proves it. Mohair seats, tall greenhouse, and ornamental wood trim made a Dodge a pleasant place to be. The gauge panel with readouts for oil, power, and speed might not seem too special today, but it was three times what you got in a Model T! And in the rear, roll down windows, rear heat vent, and sunshades make this one a luxurious touring car for its time.
Under the hood is inline-four that has the perfect honest appearance of a car that has been chugging along for over 90 years. In fact, it wouldn't surprise us if this was the original 212 cubic-inch motor. It's rated well above the Model T at 35 hp, and more importantly in case of this age, the high torque makes this a true touring car. Convenience really was a buzzword for these Dodges, and that still holds true today in everything from three-speed manual transmission, to the 12-volt electrical system (unheard of in its time) that will accept a regular battery. So maybe this one has the potential to be your perfect parade car, too.
Who knew rolling history could look this good? You're already a standout just by showing this Dodge off, but what makes it irresistible is that it also gives you so many more stories to tell. Call today!!
