Default Continetal Engines in Dodge Car/Truck/Bus?

By accident noticed a listing, under Dodge Bros, in a 38 Victor gasket catalog:
(1st line): (Pas'ger)6cyl 1927-28. Senior 6. 31/4x41/2; 1929-30. 33/8x41/2. (Continental 12M).
(2nd line): (Truck)-Models ED-OD-TD-GE-HE-OE-RE-TE. 2-3Ton. 1927-31.
(3rd line): (Bus)-models JD-YD-JE-YE-880-881. 1927-31.
(Punctuation is exactly as appears in catalog).
The same catalog, on another page, in an index of engines in DodgeBros trucks, shows the same models, tonnage, dates as having a"6cyl Dodge" engine.
In the Cont engine section index, it shows "12M-14M. (Dodge)" and the catalog page number that has the above Dodge Bros listing.
A 36 engine parts catalog, in the Cont section, shows two different 12M and 14M listings; one with 31/4 bore, the other with 33/8 bore, both lumped in with other engines.
It lists the above car, truck and bus models in the Dodge section, apparently early models with a 31/4 engine, and later models with a 33/8 engine;the part numbers for both are the same as for the 31/4 and 33/8 12M-14M Cont listings, altho the Dodge listings do not identify it as a Cont engine.
While I don't follow Dodge, I don't recall seeing or hearing of their using a Cont engine; does anyone know if this listing is correct??? Many thxx for any comments!
