The first Dodge Victory Six was produced 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 smooth running engine could accelerate from 5 to 25 mph in 7.5 sec. The 58-hp six was good for 60 mph and 21 mpg (at 25 mph) according to Dodge. 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. Its six-cylinder engine produced 68 horsepower.
