30-35 Touring





Horace and John Dodge founded the Dodge Brothers Company in Detroit in 1900, and quickly found work manufacturing precision engine and chassis components for the city's growing number of automobile firms.
The Dodge Brothers Motor Company was established in 1913 and by 1914, John and Horace designed and introduced the first car of their own – the four-cylinder Dodge Model 30-35 touring car.
Dodge Brothers cars continued to rank second place in American sales in 1920. However, the same year John Dodge died of pneumonia in January. His brother Horace then died of cirrhosis in December of the same year. With the loss of both founders, the Dodge Brothers Company was left in the hands of their widows, who promoted long-time employee Frederick Haynes to the presidency. During this time, the Model 30 was evolved to become the Series 116 (retaining the same basic construction and engineering features). As the 1920s progressed, Dodge gradually lost its ranking from the third-best-selling automobile manufacturer, to seventh in the U.S. market.
The Dodge 30-35 is an automobile that was the first car produced by Dodge in Detroit, introduced on November 14, 1914.
The car had an L-head inline-four engine of 212-cubic-inch (3.5 L) displacement, which had a power output of 35 hp (25.7 kW). The rear wheels were driven by a leather cone clutch and a three-speed gearbox with middle gear. The rear wheels were braked mechanically. In the short model year of 1914 the only body offered was a four-door tourer (whose driver “door” could not be opened); from January 1915, a two-door two-seat roadster was also available. From this point on, electric lighting was also standard equipment.
When the series was replaced in July 1916 by the Model 30, a total of 116,400 copies were made, of which 150 were also made by the United States Army and others.
