Dodge 1921-1972

Dodge was a conservative participant in the Australian car market right up to 1958 when it suddenly morphed from middle-class to upper-echelon with the arrival of the Custom Royal V8.

Australia only saw four-door versions back then but some hardtops have swelled the ranks since the 1980s.

Prices asked for 1960s Dodges remain generally lower than for Chevs and Fords of similar age, with Phoenix four-doors offering keen buying at less than $20,000.

Early cars, especially the vintage-era Tourers, offer decent value and $30,000 will buy a Six in top condition.

Local body-builders during the 1930s supplied some coupe and roadster bodies for Dodge chassis but these are now scarce and double the cost of a sedan.

Sedan/Tourer 1921-29 $24,960 [12] 

Sedan/Coupe 1935-48 $21,445 [9]

Royal/Coronet 1957-61 $38,300 [9] 

Phoenix 1960-64 $30,285 [9]

Phoenix 1965-72 $19,625 [11]
