Auctions America Auburn Fall Spotlight: 1940 Graham Supercharged 4 Door Sedan
By 1940, the Graham-Paige Company of Detroit was near bankruptcy. As a final hope to increase sales, Graham purchased the body dies from the defunct Cord automobile company which were originally designed for the 810/812 series Cords by Gordon Buehrig. The result was a new model called the Hollywood which was made in limited numbers in late 1940 and 1941. This 1940 Hollywood four-door sedan was fully restored at a cost of nearly 60,000.00 and is fitted with its original six cylinder engine and a rare, factory supercharger.
