War year cars are hard to come by, original war year cars are almost impossible to find! 1942 Dodge automobile production lasted only 7 months due to America?s involvement in WWII and during that time only 4659 Custom Club Coupes were manufactured; this is one of them. It is rather difficult to say just how many of these cars actually survived, but, one would have to believe few; very few. The 1942 Dodge Custom Club Coupe was powered by an L-head straight six engine, Stromberg carburetor, 3 speed manual transmission, independent front coil springs and rear elliptic springs; the engine developing105hp. Custom Club Coupes were easily identified from the Deluxe Coupes by the use of chrome beading around the windows and dual wipers. This car: This 1942 Dodge is a rare find indeed. With 56,290 reported and believable original miles, the car may be one of the most original war year Dodge Custom Club Coupes available today. The paint work appears mostly original though there are a few touch-up spots. There is also a very small rub through area on the top of the right front fender. All of the bright work is there, with 66 years of nice patina. The front and rear bumper chrome is as new. The chassis is clean but does show that the car is 66 years old. The chassis is bone dry, no signs of corrosion or rust or any previous accident damage. The Coupe runs and drives very, very nicely! The transmission shifts smoothly, the brake pressure feel is good and pedal modulation is as good as anything from that era. Steering is also remarkably tight and does not have excessive play. The interior is finished in beige hounds tooth cloth that is certainly period for the car. The headliner appears absolutely original. The engine compartment is also remarkably clean and with the exception of a modern battery, shows a nice clean patina as well. Remarkably well preserved and ready to enjoy.
