  1. Hello Bob, We know for a fact that the Dodge Brothers Dealers would post maps in their windows to keep the general public abreast of the progress of the Marathon Car. These maps had to have been furnished by Dodge Brothers Corp since they match one magazine advertisement that I have. This is the best image I have found to date of a dealership window display map.
  2. Hello Dinster, In the above e-mail Mr Gates implied that the Dodge Brothers Assembly plant was moved to Windsor at the end of 1928 when in fact this did not happen until December of 1929. Please see attached article from "The Ottawa Journal" Saturday November 23rd 1929 newspaper.
  3. Hello Dinster, That little plate would be a dealership control number. It would be referenced when you took your car in for servicing. Here is one from our local direct Dodge Brothers dealer. They didn't always include the name on the plate with the numbers.
  4. Hello Bob, Here is another picture you my not have.
  5. Hello Jim, Sorry to say these images are not my car and I don't even remember where they came from. These old oil filters are pretty hard to come by anymore. The really difficult ones are the filters with both ports in just the one end like the ones that they used on the 1930-31 DC-8s! I wished I could be of more help.
  6. Hello Bob, I don't know if these will help you but I hope so. David
  7. Hello Mag Man, I have boxes and boxes of 1920's and early 30's hinges and latches but if you don't post some pictures they will just stay put. I haven't a clue what you are looking for but I may have some that you need!!!
  8. Hello 35cz8, Here is an image that I purchased some time back on E-fee. It was taken in New York state but the date and the town still eludes me. If you want a bigger image just e-mail me for I am more then happy to help out.
  9. Hello 35cz8, I have some I'll share with you.
  10. This Diplomat Wagon is still in need of a caring good home.
  11. My Father’s original 1932 Chevrolet Special Sedan with 41,000 miles is for sale. He purchased it in 1981 from the second owner’s grandson. It is believed to have been sold new in Spokane, Washington and then traded in when just one year old. The 1934 Washington registration is included along with a clear Washington title. The car was built in Oakland, California has the original Manganese Blue paint still on it in some places along with the original mohair upholstery. It is a completely original numbers car, to our knowledge none of the mechanical parts have ever been changed. When we purchased the car the right front side mount fender had been so badly damaged that it was cost prohibitive to fix it so we replaced it with a new old stock fender. Much work has been performed on the car and many accessories have been found. (The following accessories are available but not included at this price: the factory extension trunk and rack, the right hand tail light, the second horn (then we had them both restored), a factory heater, and factory mirror clock, factory wind wings.) If you would like to arrange to see the car or would like more information please contact me through the AACA mail system. The car is located thirty miles out of Spokane, Washington. As for the price, $11,000.00 or best cash offer. If you wish to criticize the car please keep your comments to your self for I don’t want to hear them. I have many more pictures then what is posted here so please just ask and I can e-mail them to you. With a battery and a bit of work it would run, it’s not been run in a while.
