1926 Dodge 116 Sedan, 3,500cc. Registration number BF 9273. Chassis number A 642744. Engine number B715429.
The Dodge name has long been associated as a member of the Chrysler family; however, there was a time when Dodge was an entity of its own. John and Horace Dodge established their first machine shop in 1900 and their talents were quickly noticed by several pioneers of the early motor car. Ransom Eli Olds and Henry Ford both purchased engines, transmissions, and axles from the Dodge brothers and by 1913 the brothers realised that they were capable of building their own car. Plans were underway in 1913 and the first Dodge brothers' car left the factory in November of 1914. From the very start, Dodge gained a reputation as a sturdy car that offered superior reliability. Never one to make drastic changes, the Dodge Brothers only refined their design when the need arose. It was in this belief that the Dodge found its niche as a car that outlasted many other cars of the day. Within a mere two years of its introduction as a manufacturer, Dodge would rank fourth place in the industry in terms of volume.
