Help with 1929 Graham Paige

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello everyone,,,

I have the chance to pick up a 1929 Graham Paige 4 door sedan. Trying to figure out value and whether the parts missing can be located. Not sure which model it is. Are there serial numbers somewhere on the car or did they just use the engine number? What is a rough value of the car the way it is. No title, not registered since 1952 in California. 

The good: Top wood all replaced with new vinyl.

Floor has new wood with vinyl

Engine and transmission work done

Has all six wheels

Has inside dome lights

Rust free

Bad: missing all interior and exterior door handles

Missing all the seats

Missing crank

Missing cowl trim

Missing drivers running board

 

How hard will the missing parts be to find?

I would say it is worth about $5,000.00.  Parts can be made or found maybe.  I searched for over 50 years to locate a crank hole cover and over 20 years for a radiator cap for my Pontiac of which there were twenty times as many produced as your Graham Paige.  It looks like it could be a great quality car.

If you hired the work out, chrome 8 thousand, paint 7 or 8 thousand, exterior handles  3 or 4 hundred each for used and rechrome or for reproduction, interior upholstery 6 thousand plus 5 thousand for incidentals.  If the engine need to be overhauled you could be looking 3 to 6 thousand more.

It would be a great project but you could buy a completed car for half what the restoration would cost.  If I were twenty years younger I would take it on if I could get it for a reasonable price.

Good luck in whatever you decide.  Further down the page, under Graham Paige ( https://forums.aaca.org/forum/67-graham-paige/ ) there are people willing and able to answer all your specific questions.

very very difficult to find parts.

 

what you have is an orphan car..........

 

with a little ingenuity and time, you can make or find the parts. for example, you have one runningboard, so copy it and make the other. regarding handles, use a diff makes handles to get the car back on the road.

 

bottom line is do you just want to get it running and driving or do you want a concourse car? you dont have to spend a lot, but you can..............

 

ps I can help with the title, if you get to that point.

All orphan cars parts are hard to find but that is half the fun and the internet has made it easier.  There is still Hershey.  Try finding parts for a Moon

NOT EVERYONE IS UP FOR THE CHALLENGE. BOTTOM LINE IS - WHAT ARE YOUR INTENTIONS?

 

there is another Graham for sale on here asking 18k and a finished car- one would be way way ahead if they wtd to just drive and go to shows.

This '29 Graham-Paige 629 town sedan was discussed at length on this topic earlier this year when another gentleman was considering it:

 

 

It is indeed a rare, top-of-the-six-cylinder-line 629 town sedan.  It is a worthy rare car, membership in the Graham Owners Club would be a great help to restore this rarity to its proper condition.
