Rare Dodge Wayfarer Roadster

Ready to Drive Away

VEHICLE DESCRIPTION:

VEHICLE HISTORY: The current owner purchased this car in 1982. He started a restoration which was completed in the early 1990s. It was a body-off-frame restoration using mostly NOS parts. It was driven sparingly after the restoration but then mostly sat in his garage. The engine was started up once a month to keep everything lubricated and in running condition. In 2012 it got back on the road again with four new tires, new canvas top, ew upholstery, nd new carpeting. It also had a brake job with a new master cylinder and brake cylinders. At the same time a new oil pump was installed along with rod bearings. Just last year a new heater box was installed and a new gas tank sending unit was installed. He is getting too old to enjoy his baby, o a new owner is going to benefit from his total and thorough restoration. With the newer tires and a recent service this beauty is ready to drive away!

MARQUE HISTORY: The Wayfarer for 1950 continued to be Dodge’s entry level vehicle. Continuing with the same body as 1949 there was minor restyling of the trim and a completely new grille. At the rear the new tail lights followed the curve of the fenders and were mounted flush. A single horizontal chrome strip was located on each front and rear fender. A total of 75,400 Wayfarers were produced for the 1950 model year and only 2,903 (less than 4%) were Roadsters. The factory price (without options) for the Roadster was $1,727.
