I.D. received: 1935 Graham Blue Streak Taillight Body /

I.D. needed Taillight Body, 1930s? must be off a big Car weighs about 6 lbs the whole body is a casting no stamped sections except the Lic plate frame, Has anybody ever seen this design before? I Have found this Lens design attachment on Chrysler and Packard Prods but not with a lens this big (3 ¾’’).

It has High-end Encase, System that molds in the Bezel. The missing Lens would fit inside place with 3 inside spanning springs (included).   

Thank you for your input

I would say so. There are a couple different styles,your's is angle mount,some are straight across the bottom more like a mushroom. It's been many years since I've had any of them but they all sold quickly to Graham owners. So what you have is some pretty good trading stock. Not gold but maybe copper these days.

Yes 1932-1935  Graham models 56, 57, 57A, 64, 65, 69, 71, 67, and 68 (wide body Blue Streaks)

 

Strange license plate bracket, looks too nice to be hand built, must have been an export part?

OK I checked with the definitive expert.

 

The tail light is correct for my answer, but the license plate bracket is one year only 1935 Model 73 or 75 coupe or convertible.

Wow that sounds like a special Car, Graham 1935 Model 73 / 75 Blue Streak Coupe or Convertible. I found a Graham Hubcap in the shed now I have to find a (3¾ inch) Red Lens to help display this Graham unit.

Thank you this was a tremendous help.

There used to be a guy around named Bill McCall,called himself the Blue Streak Specialist. Used to see him at Chickasha but haven't in several years. Anyone know if he's still around? Might be able to help if he is. I don't remember where he hung his hat when he was home but may have been somewhere in Texas.

Bill McCall is the definitive expert on Graham "Blue Streak" automobiles.  He is in Texas, and has a book out that has everything anyone has ever known about Graham Blue Streak automobiles.  The book is an absolute must for anyone who wants to restore a Blue Streak Graham.

 

If anyone wants a book or wants to contact Bill, I should be able to help you out.
