About Dodge Brothers

After the founding of the Dodge Brothers Company by Horace and John Dodge in 1900, the Detroit-based company quickly found work producing precision engine and chassis components for the city’s automobile firms. Chief among these customers were the established Olds Motor Vehicle Company and the then-new Ford Motor Company.

Dodge Brothers enjoyed much success in this field, but the brothers’ growing wish to build complete vehicles was exemplified by John Dodge’s 1913 exclamation that he was “tired of being carried around in Henry Ford’s vest pocket.”

By 1914, Horace had found a solution by creating the new four-cylinder Dodge Model 30. Marketed as a slightly more upscale competitor to the ubiquitous Ford Model T. As a result of this, and the brothers’ well-earned reputation for quality through the parts they made for other successful vehicles, Dodge Brothers cars were ranked at second place for U.S. sales as early as 1916.

That same year, Henry Ford decided to stop paying stock dividends, which led the Dodges to file suit to protect their annual stock earnings of one million dollars; this led Ford to buy them out, and the Dodges were paid some US$25 million.
