Recently we had a few vintage cars on display here at Franke Tobey Jones during the ice cream social on a beautiful Friday afternoon.
1. Dodge Brothers 1928
The Dodge Brothers Company was founded by brothers Horace Elgin Dodge and John Francis Dodge in 1900 as a supplier of parts for automobile makers in Detroit. The company began manufacturing complete cars in 1915. Both brothers died in 1920, and the company was sold to Chrysler Corporation in 1928.
The wheels on this car are made of wood. The owner told us that he has gotten the car up to 50 miles per hour, but it cruises along best at about 40 mph.
2. Buick Special 1938
The Buick Special was the company’s entry-level full-size auto from 1936 to 1958.
3. Studebaker Commander 1941
Studebaker Corporation used the model name Commander between 1927 and 1964, except for 1936 and 1959–1963.
