Engine and transmission suppliers to Ransom Eli Olds and then Henry Ford, the Dodge brothers - John and Horace - diversified into automobile manufacture in 1914. Featuring a 35hp four-cylinder engine, welded all-steel body, and 12-volt electrical system, the first Dodge was a robust, 'right-first-time' design that changed little, apart from a couple of extensions in wheelbase length, over the course of the succeeding ten years. By 1928, when it was acquired by Walter P Chrysler, Dodge was offering its first six-cylinder car, and the last examples of the 'Fastest Four in America' would be built for the 1927/28 model year. These were the Series 128 and 129, the latter distinguishable by virtue of its four-wheel hydraulic brakes.
An older restoration, this left-hand drive Dodge 'Fast Four' was purchased from Europe by the enthusiast vendor and has formed part of his private collection ever since. Well serviced by the vendor, the Dodge has been used for numerous VSCC and VCC events and is said to drive well. The hood is in good condition and the car further benefits from the addition of an SU fuel pump. Unused for the last year or so, the car will require re-commissioning before further use. Far superior to the ubiquitous Ford Model T, this powerful Dodge 'Fast Four' offers the prospect of 'Edwardian' motoring in considerable style.
