    I sent the pics to my old man who'll surprise the hell out of me if he doesn't know. I'll repost if he come up with anything.

    BTW, just a tip for future reference - if you hit the "print screen" button on your keyboard 2x quickly it will copy the image on your screen then you can paste it into a file using a program like "Paint" so you don't have to take a picture of your monitor :)
     
  4. Looks like a small car. I.ll have a stab at a Willys.

    Opps, I think you are correct. Plus the hood side chrome is different.
     
  11. This is a 1935 Graham catalog I found with a quick Google Images search. I'm not saying it's the real deal, but they are pretty close. We all know the artist drawings were never spot on to the actual vehicles.
    The little flip at the end of the belt line looks right, the artilery wheels look correct, and the hood side trim is very close.

    These could be either Graham or Reo pictures. In '35 and '36 (and maybe '37, as well) Graham was buying it's bodies from Reo. Reo was, in turn, buying it's bodies from one of the well known body builders of the time -- perhaps Budd, but I'm not certain. The bodies always struck me as heavy looking in the rear -- sort of abrupt and European looking. Both companys were on there last legs, so to speak, so sharing bodies was probably a matter desperation.

    If you look at the pics Rich Venza posted, there were not any 2 dr sedans pictured. Maybe NOT a Graham??????

    The pictures aren't from England because the cars in the 3 photos are left hand drive.

    Graham made a 2 dr "touring sedan" in 1935

    Also, not a Reo. Reo built bodies for Graham in '36 and '37, quite different from the body pictured.

    Here is a photo of a 35 Graham 2 door[​IMG]

    I've seen two door Grahams. I've seen lots of them, because I follow Grahams on Jaxed. I'd like to have a Supercharged one. I love Hupps, as well, and I assure you that a Hupp looks much more streamlined than these boxy old bodies. You know, guys, when in doubt go to Google images. Also, if you have an old car that you can't recognize, there's no better help anywhere on the AACA forums. (Antique Automobile Club of America). There are guys on there that live for the challange and, geez, are they knowledgeable!

    Do you man Hupp question mark? It is not a Hupp - Hupmobiles of that era all had split rear windows just for starters.... I don't think it is American
     
  24. There can be no doubt that it is a Graham. It is identical to the green car that Arkie posted. Look at the swoopy reveal that wraps around the rear of the body. 35 Graham Touring Sedan fer sure.

    W C fields spelled it Karl La Fong? ("K", rather "C"). I love the reference, anyway!

    Rich Venza identified it correctly, I just confirmed it. It is definitely a '35 Graham. The car looks odd in the back because Graham had previously had trunkback sedans (actually add-on trunks) and were trying to modernize them with not much money for retooling.

    The buying public thought they were ugly and didn't buy, so for '36 & '37, Graham bought Reo bodies

    You're right! It's been so many years, I screwed it up. Fun to see it again...W C was such a treasure. Oh well...at least I understood the reference. I'm sure most Hambers just think you have an odd name!
