Rally Preparation Services is pleased to offer this beautifully prepared and presented 1939 Dodge Luxury Liner Business Coupe long distance rally car.
The Dodge Brothers Company was founded (not surprisingly) by two brothers, John and Horace in Detroit, originally making auto parts and by 1914 their own cars. Innovative from day one, Dodge were the first to mass produce a welded steel body and by 1920 sales were second only to Ford. Both Dodge brothers died in 1920 and the company was bought by Chrysler. The Luxury Line was introduced in 1939 to celebrate 25 years of car production with new models that were longer and wider than before.
This car was built in the US to a very high standard with massive attention to rally preparation and cosmetic detail. The result is a car that is both rewarding to drive and “a nice place to be”. The car has an enviable reliability record successfully completing the Peking to Paris twice, finishing the 2016 event with the current owner 4th O/A and 1st in class. Clearly maintained fastidiously and regardless of cost, this Dodge is ready to compete with both success and elan. Huge spares inventory also available.
