Do you like how we continue our the pre-war “American Beauty” theme in this ad for our first-ever cataloged station wagon? You don’t need to remember that Dodge sold only limited numbers of Westchester truck-based station wagons before the war. That’s old history! In 1949, what’s new is our workhorse for the whole family, a car that seats nine while packing a ‘Get-Away’ engine.

Be it brute force or flashing acceleration you’re after, your dependable Dodge dealer has a deal for you.
