1922 Dodge Five Passenger Touring
Chassis no. 797562
Engine no. 850742
The second of two Dodge cars in the collection, its VIN decodes to be from the second series of 1922 production, by which time the company revised the styling of the model to have a higher hood line and rounder cowl design. The two guises of the model produced record breaking sales figures for the company, with more than 150,000 units shifted in the complete model year as production facilities grew to enable production of a massive 600 units a day.

This is a four/five seater appears to be a completely original example in stock black paint scheme and matched black trim. On close inspection it seems to retain all of the period details associated with the model including the plethora of Dodge logo'd pieces as well as the full length top. It also has the catalogued period option of a front bumper.

According to a windshield sticker for Pennsylvania DMV, the car was last on the road for the 1979/80 season. After this it is thought to have been laid up on blocks in sympathetic storage from which it was removed earlier this year. Since then, in recent months, the car has been worked on and with light attention was made to run.

Offering a useable alternative to its contemporaries, this is a benchmark example of the model, in its touring form.
