10 Awesome Dodge Cars That History Forgot
The founders of Dodge were interested in other things before the brand became recognized for its powerful automobiles.
Early in the 20th century, brothers John Francis and Horace Elgin Dodge produced bicycles under the Evans-Dodge brand,
made auto accessories, and provided various parts to the Ford Motor Company. They eventually transitioned to making vehicles.
Dodge established its primary plant in 1913. The brothers agreed to build a test track the next year. Dodge's first car,
the Model 30, commonly known as Old Betsy, rolled off the assembly line. In 1917, the Dodge Screenside commercial truck debuted on the road.
