The 1924 Sedan That Sold For Thousands On Pawn Stars

Cars have always been an important part of the business for the head honchos at "Pawn Stars." This is no surprise, as cars check many of the boxes that define valuable goods for buying and trading. Cars are collectible, they're popular, and the industry has a lot of history — meaning that there is a virtually unending well of unique and valuable cars out there. If it has four wheels and can go, chances are that Rick Harrison and his team can take it and make some money off of it.

That's why, in one fateful Season 5 episode, when a customer comes in claiming they have a car that they would like to sell, Corey and the Old Man don't hesitate to head outside and see what they have in store. What they are met with isn't quite what either of them expected. Instead of a powerful hotrod or a luxurious cruiser, it's  a vintage sedan. Even so, this is no ordinary sedan, but a 1924 Dodge Brothers sedan worth thousands.

How Corey purchased a piece of Dodge Brothers history

In the early 1900s, America's automobile market was crowded. There were scores of American car companies out there, many of which had split off from the Ford brand. One of the few which survived into the modern era was the Dodge Brothers company, or as we know them today: Dodge. One of the products they created during this early era of the car industry was a simple, straightforward sedan, the very same kind of car that this episode's customer brought in.

Right off the bat, however, it's clear that everything isn't as it seems with this vintage relic. It does still carry many of the original parts, but it is still a restored piece of machinery. Many things, from the glass and the upholstery, to the chipped paint and rough chrome-job don't quite hit the mark. If Corey was going to buy and sell this without modifying it, he would be selling a project car. Depending on how much a car like this gets on the market, the seller likely won't get the $14,500 he is asking for.

Unfortunately, Corey's car expert appraises the car at around $8-10,000. This is definitely not the price the seller wanted. Of course, Corey and the Old man have to take the necessary repairs into account, and offer the seller $6,000 for the car. The seller isn't having this price, however, and manages to negotiate back up to $7,500 for the ancient automobile.
