Dodge Wayfarer Roadster
Introduced for 1949, the entry-level Dodge Wayfarer was offered as a two-door, six-passenger sedan, a two-door, three-passenger coupe and as a two-door, three-passenger roadster. The Wayfarer roadster was initially offered with removable windows, which were superseded by roll-up windows with vents in 1951. The 1949 and 1950 Wayfarer are of the last production roadsters built in America with the exception of the Chevrolet Corvette and the Kaiser-Darrin. Today, the Wayfarer roadster remains one of the most desirable 1949 Dodge models, with only 5,420 built that year and remarkably few remaining today.
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in October of 2011 at the Hershey Lodge, Hershey, Pennsylvania.
