1928 Graham Paige 835 Speedster
Photographed at the 2018 Bay to Birdwood Rally, West Beach, South Australia.
The 1928 Graham Paige 835 was the largest model offered at that time, and was powered by a 5,279cc, 120hp, Straight-eight L-Head Engine (which was built by Continental).
The gearbox was a 4-speed manual, with only the upper 3 speeds intended for normal use.
At the leading edge of technology of the day, the 835 featured rubber engine mounts, balloon tyres and pressed steel wheels.
THe 835 was very much targetted at the upper end of the market, prices similarly to the small Packards of the era.
The Graham Paige company was founded in 1927, and produced cars through to 1940. The company was ultimately sold in 1947 to Kaiser-Frazer, and the name was finally gone by 1962.
This is without doubt one of the most beautiful cars I have ever seen. I hope you enjoy looking at the pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them.
