For sale in Dallas showroom is a unique Hotrod. We will bet you haven't heard of the 1941 Graham Hollywood. Well a bit of history, The Graham Brothers decided to start their own automotive business in 1927, they purchased Paige-Detroit Motor Company and started building cars. After some success in racing they earned a reputation and had a successful company. After â??The Great Depressionâ? kicked in and sales fell. After partnering with Hupp Motor Company they started building vehicles based upon the body dies of the Cord automobiles. The company lasted until 1962 after struggling for a very long time in sales and the inability to retool.
When you find a Graham now it is usually not all original due to the fact that parts are virtually impossible to find. This one is no different, it was built into a hotrod and what a hotrod it is. Custom paint and flip open headlights to further the connection to the Cord vehicles it was designed after. Under the hood lies a supercharged Chevrolet 350 CID Small Block, mated to a TH350 3 speed automatic transmission. The rear axle is a Ford 9 inch with 3:10 ratio gears. The front suspension is a Fatman Mustang II tubular front suspension. The wheels are a set of 15 inch American Racing Torque Thrust IIâ??s wrapped in a staggered set of 205-75-15 front and 235-70-15 rear tires. The paint is a nearly flawless candy pink metallic color that radiates in the sun. The leather interior is comfy just like the Cadillac it came from. This is a nice and unique Streetrod that gets a lot of looks no matter where is goes.
