Shortly after purchasing Dodge Brothers Inc for $175,000,000 in 1928, Walter P Chrysler ordered the four-cylinder models on which his new acquisition had made its reputation dropped in favour of an exclusively six-cylinder line-up. Very much part of the new range, the Victory was introduced later that same year. Built around a 112-inch wheelbase, its strong ladder frame chassis was equipped with leaf-sprung suspension and four-wheel drum brakes. Powered by a 208ci flat-head engine mated to a three-speed manual gearbox, it was available with a range of bodystyles all of which reflected traditional Dodge styling cues and was exported worldwide.
This RHD example spent much of its life in New Zealand before coming to the UK and being registered in November 1990. Currently displaying some 82,250 recorded miles, DS 8781 is finished in cream with black wings and blue cloth interior and is said to have “excellent” interior, gearbox and engine with “very good” bodywork and paint. The vendor further advises the Dodge “starts every time and runs well cruising at 45 – 55mph”. Offered with Swansea V5, it is of course MoT exempt.
