1926 Dodge Business Sedans: Pick One!

frontleft28

The value of older cars has dropped dramatically. I hope these historic cars are saved. Here’s an interesting example and choice, 2 1926 Dodge business sedans. One, the first picture, is a really nice survivor found by Charles H and listed on Hemmings for $9750. It has only 46,000 miles and runs and drives well. The second is a fresh barn find on Vehiclemarkets for only $1775. The barn find is all original except for the primer, even the leather interior is original. The engine is free. The original owner had it until 1992. Either of these cars would an interesting choice, the first you can just drive and enjoy, the second a really cheap project. Sadly, the second one may end up as a rat rod or a custom. If the wood and the rust in the barn find is not bad I would love to do the minimum to get it running and driving like we used to do with cars we found in the barns in New Mexico.

1926 Dodge Sedan

 

Here is the project sedan and as you can see, it needs a lot more work than the other car, but it’s also a lot cheaper!

    My grandfather, Fred J. Forbes sold these when new. Somewhere in a family album, there are some pictures taken from outside the showroom, showing the windows painted with “NEW FOR 1926 (or was it 1927?) DODGE VICTORY SIX”

    Supposedly, it was the first Dodge Brothers dealership in the state of Indiana, located in Elkhart.

    My parents met in Elkhart around 1937, when they were both working for the Selmer (band) Instrument Company. They were married in November 1938.

    Looks like those two Dodges have held up pretty well for their age!

    Just looking at it makes me feel taller.

    Both cars look like a good buy. It all depends on how much work you want to do. The Hemmings car looks like it is “wash and go”. The Vehiclemarkets car will take more work, but it is very restorable.
