GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1918 Dodge Brothers Roadster for purchase. Dodge Brothers touring cars were cemented in the U.S. military consciousness in a 1916 Southwest border skirmish. A young cavalry lieutenant named George S. Patton gained notoriety by trading horses for Dodges and returning from a mission to Mexico with the bodies of three of Pancho Villa's banditos on the hood. Patton might have been the first U.S. soldier to use motor vehicles in a military attack, but the bigger story was that it happened in America's first motorized military campaign.

Introduced in 1914, Dodge cars became known for common- sense advancements that never got too far ahead of the technology curve or priced out middle-class Americans. Dodges proved very reliable during World War I, with many thousands purchased by the War Department. Differences from the civilian models were few: stronger wheels, a canvas top and the lusterless military green paint. These first-generation Dodges stayed in military livery well into the 1930's.

This is a really rare find of a 1918 2-seat roadster that is a great restoration to stock specifications. It is powered by the correct 212ci flat 4 cylinder engine. This is a really cool car that is in excellent condition and even has appropriate decals that are rarely seen. Please call or email for more details!
