  1. Grab anything that is not bolted down that looks like a part, if you have any questions identifying parts, I can help. Treat that intake/exhaust manifold like the Crown Jewels, they are almost as rare, same with the carburetor, it is a little easier to find but you wont want to pay for it. Lots of people have tried to add Graham superchargers to non-supercharged cars. The first supercharged Graham cars was in 1934. I would take the supercharger if they think it is a part, easy to sell, you will need the proceeds for the restoration. Hope you find the steer
  2. My 1933 Graham sedan uses the same 9" windshield as the roadster. I have had more than one person ask if I had "chopped the top".
  3. Always liked the look of these...1932 Stutz DV-32 Convertible Victoria by Rollston
  4. Sometimes I would rather have a "copy", so I can drive it, not that I could ever afford this car anyway. A rare 1965 Shelby GT350R Mustang raked in $3.85 million at auction on Friday, becoming the most expensive Mustang on the planet. https://www.businessinsider.com/most-important-mustang-auction-history-for-sale-shelby-gt350r-mecum-2020-3
  5. Bob, Coupes are extremely rare I would guess about a handful still exist, about a dozen sedans. The engines are the large problem the 822 used the 289.6 CID engine they are almost impossible to find parts. This 822 was in Arizona Wood makes up 90% of the body, basically it is a wood car with tin coverings. This is a Model A wood drawing your coupe is similar. Removing the wood is difficult, the doors are built the same way. Coupe kit...parts are almost the same between all 1930 cars (being a larger car the parts will be larger)
  6. You do know the bottom picture is not a Graham-Paige car? Hood and wheels are not correct for Graham-Paige The door alignment is the same for any early 1930 sedan, the body is shimmed to align the doors, any Fisher of Briggs book will help Automotive Woodworking: Restoration, Repair and Replacement, Roland Johnson (2001) Motorbooks Antique Auto Body Wood Work for the Restorer by C. W. Terry [The Post Group], 1969 reprint Tips on Autobody Woodwork...a Tips Manual by Don Marsh (often listed on eBay)
  7. I have been told it is a "tip tray". The nickle plated ones are originals. If you see brass ones they are reproductions, the die set survived, someone was stamping them out in the 1970's with brass.
  8. Bob, Your Graham is a 1930 822 Special Eight Coupe. The black car is Nev's Graham, President of the Graham Owners Club International, he lives in Australia What would you like to know? Try to find any parts you can from the shed. Feel free to PM me questions
  9. 1913Mercer, Ask your question. The "General Discussion" category gets the most views, so best chance you will get an answer. If it is more technical and you want less opinions put it in the "Technical" area. No questions are too small, the people here are all about old cars... the more original the better. If there is a problem with the category our awesome moderators will nudge you in the right direction. Welcome, hope you enjoy the people and answers as much as I have.
  10. Poor ventilation and a little food (dirty hands) and some moisture = mold. I had a shed like that for a while, the points have a tendency to corrode from the same conditions. I would just put a new set of points in when you get the car, or at least clean the old set. It should clean up pretty easy, I use the antiseptic wipes, and gloves.
  11. Looks right hand drive? New Zealand? Nice-looking complete car. Nice looking car done.
