The 1953 Dodge Storm Z-250 was the brainchild of advertising executive Fred Zeder a key figure in the early days of Chrysler and had worked on the Chrysler Airflow models.
The Dodge Zeder coupé was fitted with a 250 Hp Dodge Hemi engine and Dual 4 BBL Carbs. It was introduced at the 1953 Turin, Italy Auto Show.
The project was deemed too expensive to produce and the Dodge Storm prototype spent a couple of years in the factory's storage facility. The Dodge Storm was then acquired by Zeder outright. Zeder got the car and drove it for 16 years before loaning it to Northwood University. He received it back again in 1992.
Eventually, Zeder donated the car to the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, California where it is on display to this day.
This is my Tribute to the 1953 Dodge Storm Z-250. Enjoy, Mario.
