1939 Dodge

Pictures of 1939 Dodge Cars from car shows, car museums and classic car auctions across the U.S.

In 1939 Dodge celebrated its 25th anniversary with all-new styling, evoking the glamour of ocean travel by dubbing them "Luxury Liners." Although Dean Clark of Chrysler Corporation designed this model, the body was built in Grand Rapids by the Hayes Company, one of many independent companies supplying bodies to auto companies in the industry's early decades.

Clark's design altered the roof and side windows of Chrysler, Dodge, and DeSoto coupes and added a distinctive "windcrease" to the roof and deck lid. Narrow chrome-plated window frames reminiscent of convertibles replaced the usual syampings.

Clark's design changed coupe design practice, which previously had folding rear seats facing inboard. This altered roof allowed front-facing seats which could be folded up to create more cargo space.
