Dodge Brothers Sedan, Special Sedan & De Luxe sedan (1926)

A good name — priceless, and therefore jealously upheld: It is a fact well known that the name DODGE BROTHERS is more valuable than the vast and expanding works in which Dodge Brothers product is built.

Dodge Brothers, Inc., have simply kept the faith and implicit public confidence has been their reward. Year after year the car has continued to mature into a better and better product.

Costly chrome vanadium steel was the basic metal employed in the beginning, and it is the basic metal employed today — in larger measure than in any other motor car built. The first automobile to leave Dodge Brothers Works — a Touring Car — was equipped with an all steel body.

And during the past few years, Dodge Brothers have perfected this superior construction for ALL their motorcars. Beauty has been added to dependability, comfort and silence to beauty. Endless refinements have been made. Prices have been reduced. But always in every instance, the quality of every detail has been maintained or improved.

The consistent goodness of the car has attracted a steadily expanding market. Wider markets have permitted a better and better product at lower and lower cost. Dodge Brothers progress has been conservative and logical. The result is a GOOD NAME, worthy of the public trust it inspires, and too priceless ever to jeopardize.

In the percentage of costly Chrome Vanadium Steel used, Dodge Brothers motor car outranks any other automobile in the world, regardless of cost.

It is generally conceded that Chrome Vanadium Steel is the toughest and most enduring metal ever created for use in the vital parts of a motor car. It may not be so well known, however, that Dodge Brothers Motor Car ranks first in the world in the use of this costly material.

Dodge Brothers’ complete power assembly is Chrome Vanadium — motor, connecting rods, crankshaft, transmission, universal joint, drive shaft, differential and rear axle shaft. Even the front axle is Chrome Vanadium — virtually the entire steering unit — and every leaf of the springs. In fact, wherever any manufacturer uses alloy steels, Dodge Brothers use costly Chrome Vanadium. And in numerous instances, Dodge Brothers employ it where plain carbon steel, even in the costliest cars, is commonly thought sufficient.
