Footnotes

  • Originally commercial vehicle manufacturers, the three Graham brothers sold out to Dodge in 1926. The following year the Grahams bought the struggling Paige-Detroit Motor Car Company, continuing the existing Paige car for 1928 alongside a new Graham-Paige line-up. A staggering 73,195 cars were sold in Graham-Paige's first 12 months, a US auto-industry record at the time. High performance was a strong selling point in G-P's early years, one example setting speed records at the Brooklands track in England while another held the Mount Washington climb record. The company name was shortened to simply Graham in 1930. Despite a succession of styling innovations - its Bluestreak and 'shark nose' models are among the most striking of the 1930s - Graham never fully recovered from the Depression years and built its last car in 1940.

    This right-hand drive Graham Model 68 saloon is on the 116" wheelbase chassis and has the 3.7-litre engine. We are advised that only five are known worldwide. The Graham was imported from South Africa in 2003 and purchased from the importer by the current vendor. In 2011 Rees Brothers carried out a full restoration of the body, engine, and gearbox at a cost of £18,500. The recorded mileage of 65,500 is believed genuine. Described as in generally good condition, with excellent body and paint, the car is offered with restoration invoices and photographs, a V5C document, and current MoT.
