By the 1930s Dodge held a strong position in the American market and within the General Motors hierachy, positioned between Plymouth and Chrysler. Indeed, by 1933 Dodge was the fourth best selling make in the USA. For 1934, Dodge restyled the model range, characterised by a more streamlined appearance, with a vee-shaped radiator and bullet-shaped headlamps. Standard equipment included hydraulic brakes, independent front suspension and Delco-Remy ignition. The Six was standardised across the range in 1934, with several model lines available. The Series DT was the export model built in Canada, who supplied the body, chassis and running gear to markets like Australia. These export Dodge models were based on the Plymouth and used an L-head in-line six displacing 201-cubic inches and a three-speed transmission. The Dodge brothers began exporting cars to Australia
