Recommended Posts

Not Mine...   post deleted - sold?


1940 Hollywood Graham Supercharged, a fully restored car that was completed in 2010, a masterful restoration was done on this car with a tremendous amount of money spent. Car is an original California rust free car, everything done, including all the mechanics. Runs and drives smooth and fast. Car belonged to an older gentleman who passed away this year and is being sold for family. There are literally over 500 photos of the restoration process from start to finish as well as lots of receipts and documents from the build. This is a rare Factory Supercharged car with a 6-cylinder engine with manual transmission. Updated to 12 volt system for easier starting.
A rare find in this meticulously restored condition. Clear California title with up-to-date registration. Call to ask questions as we do not know a lot about this car and will answer what questions we can. Can tell you for sure that the car is an older restoration that still looks great today.

This is one of those vehicles that I think would have looked a lot better with running boards. 




With the original Cord front fenders, I think the car looked very sharp and avant-garde without the running boards.  When you mess up Gordon Buehrig's legendary design with that horrible front end, you might as well put the running boards back on! 😝

The Graham Hollywood/Hupmobile Skylark frontal styling was done by Briggs designer John Tjaarda, best known for the first Lincoln-Zephyr prototypes.  While Norm DeVaux and Hupmobile management wanted the low, fleet looks evocative of the Cord which he got with the bodies, he did not want a copy of its frontal styling to remind buyers of a car recently withdrawn from the market.

As somebody that owns one of each, I actually like the Graham front end.


The cord has a 5 inch longer nose, so it’s going to look better, but really there’s nothing wrong with the way the Graham is styled.

They did a great job with the Cord leftovers.
