Cool Go Back to Henry Ford and Dodge Brothers

Early in Henry Fords succesfull attempt at Model T Assembly Lines Dodge Brothers supplyed much of the drive line and other parts. Loaned Henry the money for another attempt at Ford. he had gone belly up several attempts. No Dodge Brothers. Would not be a Ford today possibly, Ford Boy's. The following is quote from www.ebay.com.

"Dodge manufactured every part of the Ford car except for the buckboard wooden seats and the rubber tires. Dr. E. Pfennig bought the first Ford for $850. At the time of the sale, Ford only had left $223.65 in his bank account, and was almost bankrupt. However, cash flow went only one direction after that first sale, and that direction was up. Dodge received $10,000 in stock dividends the first year. Ford stock would eventually pay out to them millions more, but for the time being the Dodge Brothers profited handsomely twice: once by selling Ford the parts he needed to manufacture his car, and again by owning stock in his prospering company." Ford had a better Idea, Dodge Brothers.

How bout that stuff.

More than 70 Years of Mopar
When Chrysler bought Dodge in 1928, the need for a dedicated parts manufacturer, supplier and distribution system to support the growing enterprise led to the formation of the Chrysler Motor Parts Corporation (CMPC) in 1929.
Mopar (a simple contraction of the words MOtor and PARts) was trademarked for a line of antifreeze products in 1937. It also was widely used as a moniker for the CMPC. The Mopar brand made its mark in the 1960's the muscle car era. The Chrysler Corporation built race-ready Dodge and Plymouth "package cars" equipped with special high-performance parts. Mopar carried a line of "special parts" for super stock drag racers and developed its racing parts division called Mopar Performance Parts to enhance speed and handling for both road and racing use.

The first ever R/T was the 67 Coronet with the 440 available as a convertible or hardtop.

Also the first Super Bee was a 68 Coronet with the same 440. You could add the six-pack or get the Hemi. It was available only in 2 door coupe or hardtop, no convertible.

ok not so sure thats Mopar history, more Dodge history, but still cool
