    This had been on my radar since a bud acquired pieces last June & offered them for sale. I initially thought of other buds to take it on while eyeing the more approachable bucket/rpu halves (and later straight-traded him for a Dodge turtledeck roadster cowl, rear quarters & dash).
    Moving the coupe parts yesterday, got more into it. Found at least one A pillar and windshield/roof rim in the stash. Lots of fenders, all the more to sell/trade with... 20190323_104907.jpeg 20190323_144932.jpeg 20190323_143712.jpeg 20190323_144916.jpeg received_770703216599652.jpeg

    I'm not seeing any Dodge Brothers parts. Why do you think that is what it is? Four cylinder DBs, those up to '27 , have a round indent in the firewall with 4 star burst rays. DB windshield mounts different then this too. I'm thinking you have something to work with but not DB. Build something and have fun!!

    The only Dodge thing I see is the touring car front half in the last pic. It has a rusty '20-'22 door on it. Nothing else looks DB to me. It is also just showing on the right in the 1st pic. For the most part, DB bodies are all steel except for early closed cars which were wood framed bodies.

    Originally was going to friend-deal the coupe project to someone and build a cheap rpu from mystery cowl and back half... now thinkin the opposite... the day we moved it home, the coupe's rear looked more whole... and more approachable as a whole... found a A-pillar for it in the stash to fab a 2nd A-pillar off of...

    This is from a seperate project, but that firewall describes the straight-off-frame cowl I got from him in a project trade (along with dash n rear quarters) 20190303_115021.jpeg 20190303_115028.jpeg received_2208956692760609.jpeg

  11. ^Now THAT firewall is a 1926 or so Chevrolet. I used to own one. You can just see the sunburst pattern behind the other stuff. 1926 Chevrolet body.jpg
