MONO-PIECE CONSTRUCTION IN DODGE i I Recognition of the Dodge Brothers mono-plece body as an advanced step in modern motor car body design hae been given added significance by perimental aud research work. con- ducted by automotive engineering students of the Oregon Institute of Technology at Portland. To carry on the Investigations, sccttons of the mono-plece bodies. were sent from the factory at Detroit. We regard the mono-piece body, found exclusively on the New Dodge Brothers Six models, as one of the most significant. contributions to modern motor ear design, sald C. E. Spencer, principal of the automotive division of the school, Our alm in obtaining sections of this body from the factory was to acquaint our stu- dents with this latest development in automotive body engineering. Rigid ity and strength in construction, free- dom from body noises and ease of repair were found to be outstanding advantages in this construction. The mono-piec construction n- troduced with the announcement of the New Dodge Brothers.
