    1920 Oil fields Dodge

    I did a check to see if this had been on the forum before. I didn't find anything.

    While I was working in Tulsa, Oklahoma about 12-13 years ago, I went to a local museum there and they had a "Tulsa" truck that the owner said they were built in Tulsa for use in the oil fields.. This vehicle except for the sedan part looked very similar to the Dodge in the video.. There was one difference though, the Tulsa had a red triangular emblem on the radiator shroud(grille).. Does anyone know about them.. The museum, I think has since closed as I've not been able to contact to confirm..

    Triangular emblem would be a Hudson, Dodge used a Star of David emblem.

    Dodge people insist it is a Double Delta, arranged to appear like the familiar Star of David.

    It's makes you laugh at the guy with an old car that's scared to drive it around the block!

    Truly amazing film especially considering they probably lacked a limited slip diff back then.
