IF this is a Dodge - which I am not sure of as the radiator is too tall and looks to have indents at the top corners like a Willys - it is a Commercial Car from the early 1920s. The first series went from 1917 to 1922 with little change.

There seems to be some confusion on this site as to the name for these earlier models from this company. The company may have been called Dodge Brothers, and the badge on the radiator may have said that as well but the cars are all Dodges. They were Dodges in 1914 and they are still Dodges in 2011 - even though they have been a division of Chrysler Corporation and others since. I see no need to put some of then as a separate make as Dodge Brothers. As it stands at present about half of the pre 1935 cars and trucks on this site are Dodges and the other half are Dodge Brothers. It will make life much simpler if they all became Dodges.

It does not appear to be a Dodge Brothers truck.Concerning the confusion issue ,Dodge Brothers was taken over by Chrysler in july 1928.All cars prior to that date were listed , specified and advertised as Dodge Brothers followed by the type ( touring , coupe , sedan , victory...).Even throughout the year 1929 up to end december the cars were sold and advertised as Dodge Brothers sixes or seniors with the mention " A product of Chrysler Motors". I have known a 1929 car registered by the Veteran Car Club here as a Dodge Brothers based on invoices and numbers. On the trucks the Dodge Brothers name appeared as late as 1934.So naming all the vehicles simply Dodge as many sources do is very questionable from a historical point of view.

I agree questionable from a "historical point of view" but so much simpler to put them all in the same make as they are from the same historical line and were built in the same plant. As it is at present about half of all the pre circa 1930 Dodge products on this site are listed as Dodges and on most car club listings they are simply Dodges. Many car makers have gone through changes of ownership but the basic name remains the same. If some are to be called Dodge Brothers, where is the cutoff date?
