Saturday 7th January 1928
The Dodge Brothers Victory Six was introduced to the public at the New York Show. The Victory Six was offered by Dodge in honour of the 10th anniversary of World War I. It was Dodge’s first six cylinder car and offered with hydraulic brakes, unique for a low-priced car. The Victory Six featured manual hydraulic brakes, a three speed non-synchronized gearbox and Dodge’s first six-cylinder engine. The flathead straight six displaced 221 cubes and makes 52 horsepower. It idles so quietly and smoothly that you really have to listen to know if its running. It featured an all-steel body built by Budd Manufacturing. This was at a time when most auto manufacturers still used composite metal and wood bodies.
