This customized hot rod is based upon the body and chassis of a 1925 Dodge Brothers Touring car, which has been modified with a lengthened and louvered hood, a shortened and flipped yellow-painted frame, and inverted suspension and axle mounting. The car is powered by a 440ci V8 paired with a three-speed automatic transmission and is finished in light green over burgundy upholstery. Equipment includes a removable tan soft top, a hinged windscreen, a hood-mounted tachometer, street lighting, leather-wrapped leaf springs, body-color 20″ steel wheels with whitewall tires, and Wilwood brake calipers. This Dodge Brothers hot rod is now offered by the selling dealer in Florida with a clean North Carolina title listing the car as a 1925 Dodge Roadster.
The bodywork is based upon a 1925 Dodge Brothers Touring car, which was modified with a lengthened hood with louvers as well as a welded-shut left door before it was finished in light green. The bodywork is mounted over a yellow-painted frame that has been shortened and inverted. Exterior details include a removable tan soft top, a hinged windscreen, headlights with integrated turn signals, and tail lights mounted to the rear axle as well as yellow and burgundy “DB 440” script on both sides of the hood.
Green-painted 20″ steel wheels wear Dodge Brothers-logo center caps and are mounted with Denman whitewall tires. The car is equipped with an external steering arm, and suspension consists of burgundy leather-wrapped leaf springs and gas strut dampers mounted above the inverted frame. Braking is provided by Wilwood calipers mounted over custom-machined discs at all four corners.
The cabin features burgundy button-back upholstery that was reportedly refreshed by the selling dealer. Features include an under-seat fuel filler, a yellow-painted dashboard, a compass, a centrally mounted throttle pedal, and tan carpeting.
The body-color steering wheel features a Mooneyes-logo center cap, and instrumentation consists of a hood-mounted tachometer, a 120-mph speedometer, an ammeter, and gauges for fuel level, coolant temperature, vacuum, and oil pressure. The five-digit odometer shows 4k miles, and total mileage is unknown.
The 440ci V8 is said to have been sourced from a 1967 Dodge and features a four-barrel carburetor, Moroso valve covers, and tubular headers paired with a side-exit exhaust system that runs through the frame. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a three-speed TorqueFlite 727 automatic transmission.
The car has been assigned the identification number AZ-364884 by the state of Arizona. The assigned identification number matches the VIN listed on the current North Carolina title.
