75 HP, 221 cid, L-Head In-Line 8-Cylinder Engine, 3-Speed Transmission Engine No. DC24467; Body No. DC223-P A new direction was taken by Dodge come 1930, with the introduction of the marque's first 8-cylinder engine. Using a conventional L-head design, this new engine delivered 25% more horsepower than the slightly smaller six. Despite a worsening economy in America this year, Dodge still managed to produce over 25,000 cars with this new larger power plant. Finished in Robin's Egg Blue with Navy Blue fenders it is complimented with a red interior done in what appears to be leather, with a tight fitting top. By 1930, the idea of open cars was starting to lose its appeal as coupes and sedans became more affordable. Extras found on this car include dual side-mount spare tires, front grille guard, glass vent wings, and to the rear of the car an original trunk rack. This is a car that really deserves a second look. When you do take a moment to inspect this car you see how the design motif of the headlights is reflected in the cowl light and even the dashboard mounted instrument cluster. This is a very handsome, rarely seen open car, that after a good detailing could be ready for local shows or the hit of the parade at a Dodge or MOPAR event. A decent car with lots of potential, it is an important benchmark for this marque.
