Interesting Dodge Brothers photos


Recommended Posts

For those of you car guys who may not know, I do a lot of research into DB trucks. 

Occasionally I run across some very exciting high quality random photos and art work I thought you car guys might enjoy.

When I find them I'll post them in here so you'll always have them for reference purposes or maybe other use/discussions...


Feel free to ID the locations and the type of car it is as I don't always know.

This photo just says  "1932 in front of monument"

Very interesting pictures. I have only seen one or two of these before. The second picture should not be a 17, as the windshield was not leaned back until '20 and for '17 the rear window should be cathedral not rectangular. The interior shot of the centerdoor sedan shows something I have heard of but not seen. That being a leather seat for the driver, was supposedly used on early centerdoors, maybe just '17. My '18 is cloth. The building of construction of the single story building shows what appears to be a pickup, but they didn't happen in 1915. But as we've discussed many times DB did what they wanted to and never built two cars alike. I am not saying any are wrong. OH, and did you see the double whitewall tire on the front of the '17 touring? Have only seen pictures of them a few times.
