It is difficult to imagine, but by the time John and Horace Dodge introduced their own car to the public in 1914, they were already among the largest and most experienced automakers in the world. The two brothers were inseparable and started at an early age working and learning skills in their father’s machine shop, and moved on to become expert machinists and steam boiler engineers. By 1897 they had designed and created a much-needed sealed ball bearing for bicycles and started their own bicycle plant, the “Evans & Dodge Bicycle Company”. After selling the company for the princely sum of $7500 (plus royalties for the bearing design), a new Dodge Brothers company opened its doors and began manufacturing automobile parts, including automobile engines for Ransom E. Olds, founder of Oldsmobile. After delivering a number of reliable engines to Olds, orders soon included Oldsmobile transmissions as well. By 1903 Dodge Brothers were one of the largest suppliers to the automotive industry. 100 Years of Dodge will celebrate the ingenuity, spirit, and style of Dodge vehicles throughout the decades in an exciting exhibit this fall at the Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) Museum.
