1924 Dodge Brothers Series 116 Four Door Sedan

VIN A34841

Inline 4 cylinder, 212 Cubic Inch engine; 35 horsepower; Manual transmission

Included with the sale is spare transmission

 

In 1924 Dodge re-styled their lineup adding louvers  to the hood, and extending the wheelbase to 116 inches. This 1924 The car exhibits all of the standard features of the Special Series 116 cars built in 1924. Although all of the standard options for the Special Series were available for every 1924 Dodge, the presence of extra features such as plated radiator shell, automatic windshield wiper and front and rear bumpers would seem to indicate that this is a Special, not just fully-loaded standard edition. The 1924 Dodge Series 116 Special 4-door Sedan seated five people. The car is outfitted with Budd-Michelin  steel disc wheels, a rear-mount spare tire & Boyce moto meter.

 

The engine runs smooth and seems to shift well. The body does have rust present in the rear inner fender/body area and the fender to running board. Otherwise, the car appears solid.  It has older repaint that is currently showing some chips and checking, but overall the car presents itself well.  The car is a 12 volt electrical system which was standard for Dodge at the time. The interior is showing wear – and much if it could be  original to the car, including the headliner, door panels and roll-down window shades in the rear seat-area. Seats appear to be redone at some point.  All is in the original style. One window crank is missing and the lens for the amp gauge is cracked.  Auxiliary turn signals have been added.   There is an extra transmission that will be included with the car; extra transmission condition is unknown.  The tires hold air but are very badly cracked and all tires would need replacement before driving. This model has a split tip-out windshield with windshield sun visor and the rear glass has two BB holes in it, but the rest of the glass is intact. The car has been part of a large museum collection since 2008 and has been housed indoors.

 

The car would be a great candidate for restoration or just a mechanical refresh with new tires and have fun driving.
