The Dodge brothers had made their fortune supplying Ford with engines and transmissions and such was their reputation that their first automobile, announced in 1914 for the 1915 model year, immediately leapt to third place in the sales race. After building some military vehicles in World War I, the Dodge brothers moved into civilian commercial vehicles in 1916 and teamed up with the Graham Brothers in the 1920s to build a range of body styles. Dodge began exporting cars to Australia in 1916, the first official dealership being S.A.Cheney of Adelaide and before long agencies had sprung up in all states. 1930 saw the introduction of the Six and Eight model Lines which continued until 1933. Production slowed with all makes during the Great Depression and 1932 model vehicles are generally a rarity and hard to find today.
