Dodge finally broke from its Special and Special DeLuxe names in
1949| introducing its first post-war design. The entry-level model
was the Wayfarer| which was lower and wider that the previous
model. The car was apowered by a 103-hp| 230-cid flathead
six-cylinder engine that was paired with either a three speed
manual or a Gyro-Matic fluid-drive| semi-automatic transmission.
The Wayfarer was offered as either a two-door business coupe| a
two-door sedan| or a roadsterthe least expensive full-size American
droptop available at the time| priced at $1|700. The Wayfarer
nameplate only lasted 4 model years| and the rare roadster model
for only 3 (49-51). Dodge Wayfarers are quite rare today| mostly
because they were ultra-affordable and basic transportation when
new and were put to steady work from the outset. The remaining
models| if found in good condition| are actually quite charismatic!
