"I have purchased many vehicles over the years, but never have I been treated as a friend rather than just another customer like Jesmond treated me on purchasing my classic car. A good honest chap with no pressure to buy, and quality classic vehicles that have been thoroughly vetted by himself before he even considers adding them to his vast inventory. If you are considering purchasing a classic car as an investment ,you can't go wrong with Jesmond and Gloria. Another satisfied customer"Steve, Auckland, New Zealand
The styling for the 1937 Dodge models were heavily influenced by the 'senior' Chrysler models, and given a new split-grille front treatment and plenty of bright trim. They had standard Autolite ignition, hydraulic brakes, all-steel disc-type wheels, 'No-Draft' ventilation, reading lamps over each rear window, new 16-gallon fuel tanks, and dual taillights.
The 218 cubic-inch L-head six-cylinder engine breathed through one-barrel carburetor and produced nearly 90 horsepower. They had a three-speed sliding-gear manual transmission and were available in several body styles, including a longer-wheelbase version.
The most popular Series D5 body style was the four-door touring sedan, which saw over 185,480 examples produced. Total series production for all D5 bodies was 295,047.
This car is a five-passenger NZ New Touring Sedan.
