In July 1928, Walter P. Chrysler purchased Dodge Brothers Automobile Company as a Division of Chrysler. The DA was introduced in 1929 and was base priced at $1025. This great looking 1929 Dodge Brothers DA Coupe is outfitted with a Budd Body, and has a solid body and frame. This is a sound car ready for mechanical refresh as needed. Plate on firewall reads: “Full Vision Bud Body All Steel Edward G. Budd Manufacturing, Philadelphia, PA”
The car has an older paintjob in blue, but shines and looks good. The vinyl bench seat upholstery is very good. The locks and all inside and outside handles are missing, as well as a couple of pieces of exterior trim. The body is sound with only a little surface rust showing on the surface underneath.
Before the car can be a driver, the hydraulic brakes will need full reconditioning, new master cylinder, wheel cylinders, hoses and shoes. The parking brake is working. The wood wheels look good, all four hubcaps are present and tires hold air well but are old and should be replaced for driving. The car wiring needs sorting, but there is a working switch for an added electric fuel pump and for the ignition for starting.
The engine runs and sounds great! The transmission shifts and operates properly. It comes with a new reconditioned 6 volt battery just installed. This car has been displayed and cared for in a clean environment as part of a large collection for over a decade.
