1914 DODGE BROTHERS Winner of THE GREAT RACE 1985 $100,000 won 1914 was a banner year for the automobile industry. No less than 146 different new makes went into production that year and poured out onto city streets and country roads ... but only one survives to this day: Dodge. When the two Dodge brothers, John and Horace, decided to announce the manufacture of a new car bearing their own name after having spent many years supplying Ford with engines, even they must have been surprised at the response. More than 22,000 applications for dealer contracts swamped their offices in Hamtramck, Michigan , before anyone knew what kind of a car would be built or what its price would be. Dodge Brothers was incorporated on July 17, 1914 , with a capitalization of $5 million in common stock. Ten years later the company was worth $166 million. The first Dodge was produced on November 14, 1914. It cost $785, had a 110-inch wheelbase, and was powered by an L-head 4-cylinder engine that proved so reliable it was continued until 1920 with very little modification.
