The Dodge DC Series was a car built Dodge in Detroit between 1930 and 1931. The car was presented as the first car with an eight-cylinder engine in January 1930.

The car had a side-valve eight-cylinder engine with a capacity of 3617cc. The engine gave an output of 75 bhp (55 kW). Power was driven through a single dry clutch and a three-speed transmission (with floor shift) delivering power to the rear wheels. All four wheels had hydraulic brakes.

The wheelbase of the chassis was 2896 mm. Bodystyles such as a four-door Phaeton, a four-door sedan, a two-door coupe, a two-door cabriolet and roadster were offered. The chassis was also available for those customers who wanted to use external coachbuilders.

The production of the small eight-cylinder engine was discontinued in September 1931.
