"Oilfield Dodge" Promotional Film 1920s Dodge Brothers Wild Ride

1920s vintage Dodge Brothers sedan drives down muddy roads and across muddy fields to get to the gushing oil well. For some strange reason the car has "Oil Field Dodge" printed on its side. I remember my parents and grandparents telling of driving on unpaved roads. What is billed as a "Wild Ride" was more common than not. In 1920, out of the three million miles of road across the continent, only 36,000 miles were auto-friendly and most of that was in the big cities.
