TitleDodge Business Sedan 1922
Coverage / Year1922
DescriptionDrawing for an advertisement
InterpretationDodge Bros. had been building all-steel bodies on their open cars since 1915. In early autumn of 1922 the Business Sedan came on the market with a body of welded steel, without the usual wooden frame, thus making it easier to pre-paint the unfinished bodies with oven-baked enamel. This saved hours of assembly time and the finish withstood much abuse without chipping, crazing, or fading. The 1922 Business Sedan had a removable rear seat and footrest thus leaving 64 cubic feet of luggage or storage space in the rear compartment.
