In the 19-teens and 1920's many cars still had wood and fabric as a body structure material. The first enclosed all-steel bodies were a quantum leap in safety, rigidity cost-savings and quietness. Dodge started the first mass-produced all-steel bodies in 1914.
Budd made quality steel car bodies for many companies for many years until Chrysler absorbed them in the 1950's.
