Dodge Brothers Spare Tire cover


Recommended Posts

Hi there, just dropped in as I have a friend who has a Dodge Brothers spare tire cover. He is a motorcycle guy and is not computer savvy so I told him I would ask about this, as I am a motorcycle guy but computer savvy!

Is this a 1932 Dodge Brothers spare tire cover? Is it worth something? Is there anyone who might need something like this?

As TerryB said, the emblem is in great shape and it's desirable. The cover needs stripped and repainted, but is definitely worth some money. I would repost this question in the both the Chrysler and Dodge & Dodge Brothers forums on this site. Just don't jump at the first offer you get. Hopefully you'll get multiple responses with a value estimate and that will assist you in determining a fair value.

I think what you have is somewhat of a mis-match between the cover and the emblem.  The Dodge wings did not come in that color scheme until 1933, and what you have almost looks like a 35 Dodge trunk emblem.  In any event, the emblem is not a 32.  There is also the extreme difference between the condition of the cover and the enamel on the emblem--one would not expect the emblem to be so spotless when the cover has obviously seen a rough life.  Further, the cover is definitely not a 33 or newer, so it mis-matches the emblem.  The 32 emblem is a different color scheme, part blue and part silver, also a very striking emblem (see attached photo).  Don't know about the year on the cover itself other than it is not a 33-34-35 Dodge.  Emblem is valuable and worthy of saving, someone else will have to help with an ID and/or value on the cover.
