DODGE CUSTOM EIGHT

4-door sedan.

No traceable exact US or Canadian equivalent for this one (introduced April '38) but in fact a '39 Chrysler New York Special with Dodge badging - 125ins wheelbase, beam front axle, dual overdrive, hypoid rear end, and full British equipment, ie leather trim, sunroof, recessed trafficators and dual trumpet horns. Some 1939 listings show a D23 Eight as well, probably a '39 Chrysler Imperial with the same treatment, but this may not actually have been made.
