DescriptionDrawing for an advertisement
InterpretationIn 1934 a new feature of the Dodge was the swinging "butterfly" windows, which made it possible to open a portion of the window without creating a draft, that could be rolled down into the front doors. This feature was popular with men who delivered newspapers on long routes as they could throw the newspapers through the side windows without obstructions. The Brougham model (pictured) was a 4-door, 5-window club sedan, which listed at $835.
