IN 1988 ( 29 YEARS AGO) I HAD MY 1930 DODGE DD-6 four DR SEDAN BEGIN ITS RESTORATION WITH A DODGE BROTHER! THE RESTORATION PROCEEDED SO SLOWLY THAT MY FAMILY TALKED ME INTO REMOVING THE CAR AND ALL LOOSE PARTS AND HAVE A WELL KNOWN RESTORATION SHOP IN BEND,ORE. TAKE ON THE PROJECT!

THE SHOP HAS DONE AN AMAZING JOB OF PAINTING AND HAS BEGUN PUTTING THE CAR BACK TOGETHER IN ABSOLUTELY RECORD TIME!
The car has been completely restored as it left the factory in 1930:The Tartan green paint, the sagebrush green mid-stripe and ivory pin striping on the body and wooden spokes. The brakes have been restored and all gauges and lights work. But to see and hear it run after almost 30 years is an extra special treat!
A very close match of the original upholstery is being completed-as has been a new roof and door panels (with map pockets) and headliner!
This 30 Dodge DD-6 (my transportation to bring my wife and birth of son home in 1964) is a dream come true and will be displayed in the Whittier Area Community Church's 7 th annual car show on Feb. 24!

Rick,

I do thank you for the upholstery source. https://www.smsautofabrics.com/ did have hundreds of samples and I found a very close match as I drove all the way to Oregon to choose it.

Very kind regards,
Lyn Levens
