There are 2 ways of ordering a build card, a direct copy or a copy with decoding
My two 1931 Dodge business coupe build cards....
Interesting that both cars were ordered with wire wheels, but both were delivered with wood spoke wheels.
The first car has 2 door hinges. The second car has 3.
Built 12 days apart.
It is my belief that during this 12 day period is when the Dodge Brothers cars went from the "shooting star" radiator cap to the "leaping ram" cap.

I also find that interesting, the early photos I have on mine shows 34 steel artilleries, I wonder if it was any thing to do with the rubber stamp they used?
I think that it may have had more to do with it being right in the middle of the Great Depression and the Dodge Boys used whatever they had on hand. I guess we'll never really know why they did what they did.
Probably was switched while on the car hauler.HE HE
Thanks for sharing Guys.
Mine's pretty self explanatory.
What specifically do you need the information for Dave ? No big deal was just curious...
The top post is from a customer 1937 Dodge p/u. He was asking what the pt stood for? So I thought I would have a post on build cards for comparison. His is pretty elaborate compare to the others.
Is there a chance that the P T Pump might have been for a power take off pump? I think that trucks back then were made more for comercial and farm use then general use. Just a thought. Scott...
I thought that also. If his truck is a 1/2 ton with 3 speed, no door for a PTO (power take off) they were put on after market from the dealer's vendors. Tire pump?
This may seem very simple minded but you've touched one of the main reasons I find the research and study of the Dodge Brothers brand during this time frame so interesting. Seems like almost every vehicle produced within the brand was different in some way... no matter what the model was.
Here is the card for my 1930 DC 8 and it has all matching numbers and is even still in Arizona.
Here's my card for my 1930 DA Deluxe Coupe. All numbers match.
Did they start the 1930 model in July of 29?
I believe, back in the day, many states initially titled the vehicle that current year. in other words, although it was built in 29 of July, not sold and titled until 1930, it was referred to thereafter as a 1930.

Yes. A VERY common practice.
Here is my build card for my Series E truck. It is registered as a 1931. I guess this is based on date sold and not on date built. I did find the truck was sold at French Motors in San Francisco Ca.
