John and Horace Dodge owned a machine engineering plant that made motorcycles and gearboxes for Ford and Oldsmobile. In 1913, they started building a car of their own and in 1914 the first finished product left the small factory in Hamtramck. In a number of respects this first car was way ahead of its time. During 1915, the first full year of production, a total in excess of 45,000 Dodges were sold. The car was and remains a great success. In 1920, sales rocketed to 141,000 vehicles. Unfortunately, the Dodge brothers did not survive to experience this pleasant state of affairs, both succumbing to Spanish flu and dying in quick succession in 1920.
Three years later, on 31 July 1928, Walter P. Chrysler took over the factories for an estimated $170 million. In 1930, the cars were sold for the first time under the name 'Dodge' rather than 'Dodge Brothers'.

Dodge had an interesting time trying to find the right formula for this Dart. First it was big, then small, then replaced, renamed, and redesigned until they landed on this one, which was just right. It was an instant market success and remained extremely popular for many years to follow. Considered a "compact" car in its day, these cars were roomy on the inside but considerably smal
If you haven't been paying attention, the Dodge Power Wagon is a pretty big deal these days. Trucks like this 1952 Power Wagon pickup are no longer $10,000 beaters and my professional opinion is that we'll see them comfortably knocking on the door of $100,000 very soon.
