Information needed on 1928 Dodge Victory Six

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased this 1928 Victory Six from back east, Michigan. Owner said it was one of the vehicles brought into the US from Argentina. It is a right hand drive. I noticed several postings from 2011 that talked about the story. I am told there are a few owners of 1928 Victories out there. Looking for detailed photos of the stock engine so I can see what is missing and how things are connected. What is attached to the cowl? How is the distributor advance linkage attached? What is the linkage at the bottom of the steering shaft that controls the rods inside the shaft? Anyone have a photo of the top rest mounts? Anyone know parts numbers or where I can get tune up items like distributor cap, rotor, gaskets?Any and all help would be appreciated. Having trouble with the generator. Are there supposed to be three pulleys on the front of the engine or only two? Anyone upgraded from 6 to 12 volts? Anyone have one in California? Would love to see one.

Any help would be appreciated.

It’s a very nice looking victory. 
Myers early dodge is a great source for all your tune up parts. 
I’ll take some pictures of my linkages later for you.

John Bittence made a cd of information on Victories. I think Myers is authorizes to sell it. It has all the information you will ever need to maintain a DB Victory. I wouldn't doubt he is familiar with your car.

I have that cd, it’s a credit to him what he put together on that. Everything you ever want to know.

I know the wheel were not correct, but thought they were Ford wheels. It looks like someone had to redrill the lug holes to match the drum lugs. Thanks

Thank you. Photos are very useful. Looking in parts boxes to see if I have any linkage, but I don't think I have any. Know of anyone who might have a parts car? I may be able to make something similar from the photos. Thank you

Is that the red horn wire coming out of the center? Can you take a few more close up photos of the small connector parts so I know what I am looking for or so I can make something similar. Multiple angles would be helpful. Thank you

I love how clean the engine is and nice work with the oil lines. Great job.

Do you have a photo of the rear top brace that mounts on the rear side of the body? The top supports are missing on this car.

thanks.
