FOR SALE: 1938 Dodge Brothers D8 sedan


Camino LS6

Recommended Posts

This car is a real survivor with 65k original miles in very good condition and very original. It has the flathead six and a three-speed manual transmission. 1938 was the last year for the Dodge Brothers name before Chrysler took over, and this car is about as close to the way Dodge Brothers built it as you are likely to find. Sealed beam headlights, add-on turn signals, and add-on seat belts are about the only real deviations from the original.

The car was my Dad's toy from 2000 until his death in 2007, and has always been garaged between weekend drives, cruise nights, and car shows over the last 11 years. It was stored prior to that by the previous owner for at least a decade in various garages with a single, brief, time of outside storage. The previous owner was an ex-employer of mine, and I knew the car fairly well prior to my dad buying it. I do know a few more tidbits of the car's history.

Although the car has become a bit of a family treasure, my mother has decided that it is time for it to find a new home, as none of us have the time to make it our focus the way my dad did. I have recently had the fuel tank cleaned and sealed and a new sending unit was installed at that time. I have also replaced the battery, and ignition coil. The car is, and has been for the last 11 years, running, driving, licensed, and insured. We put approximately 2,000 miles on it over that time taking it to shows on nice days.

The Dodge looks and runs fine, but is no museum piece and is due for a repaint. The interior is unrestored and original. It comes with many extras including some new weatherstripping from Steele, oil filter cartridges, misc. spare parts, literature, a shop manual, and a spare rebuildable engine! My dad had planned to build this engine using period hot rod parts before he got sick.

The pictures really speak for themselves, and the car must be seen to really get a feel for how well-preserved it really is.

A bit of research pegs the value at about $10,500 - so that is the the price at which we offer the car for sale.

Feel free to contact me with any questions at 610-636-3222 The name is Bob.
