Exceptional Ridine Comfort
Owners continue to comment
on the marked riding comfort
of Dodge Brothers Motor Car.
Increased chassis length, low
swung body and generous seat
depth have much to do with this.
Primarily, however, it must be
accredited to the greater buoy
ancy of the new spring equip
ment. The rear springs are ten
inches longer, and underslung.
