A little History of Dodge

Dodge Charger 69

In the early 1900s, two bicycle makers Horage Elgin Dodge and John Francis Dodge, who invented one of the first all-steel cars in America. Bicycles were the first vehicles produced by the Dodge brothers. In 1901 they opened a machine shop in Detroit, making stove parts and, later, auto parts. They began their careers as bicycle machinists in their father's shop in Michigan. Upon moving to Windsor, Ontario, Canada, they adapted their skills to meet the needs of the fledgling automotive industry and found success producing intricate auto parts. It wasn't long before John and Horace came to the attention of Henry Ford. He was so impressed with the brothers that he offered them one-tenth interest in his new motor car company.

The Dodge Brothers Company in 1910 established a large auto-parts plant in Hamtramck, Mich. There the brothers made engines and other auto parts for the Ford Motor Company and for Olds Motor Works. In 1913 they began producing their own auto mobiles, and the first Dodge auto-mobile appeared on Nov. 14, 1914. Horace Dodge was responsible for a number of manufacturing innovations, including an oven that could bake enamel onto steel auto bodies. By 1920, the year in which both brothers died, Dodge was one of the industry's largest companies. The Dodge concern was purchased by Chrysler Corporation in 1928 and remains a division of Chrysler.

Who did not already have seen the Movie "The Fast and the Furious" with the most sought Dodge Charger. One of the high points of this film was a drag race between a supercharged Dodge Charger and a nitrous equipped Toyota Supra. In this winner-take-all race for street credibility and power to a set of train tracks exactly a quarter mile away. As a train approaches, both cars manage to speed up and pass the tracks as the train barrels down on them. 'Vin Diesel' drove this Dodge Charger in the film. While dressed like a 1970 this is actually a 1969 body. Its one of 4 built for the scene.
