1928 Graham-Paige Model 835 news, pictures, and information
Joseph, Robert, and Raymond Graham built trucks for the Dodge Brothers before they bought Paige Motors in 1927. In 1928 they introduced the Graham Paige, a well built, mid-priced vehicle. By 1930, the Paige name was dropped and in 1932 the company introduced their famous Blue Streak models.
Graham-Paige was chiefly known for moderately priced automobiles, but for a few years the company went 'up market' and offered custom models such as this sport 'boattail' speedster, designed and built by the Hayes-Hunt Body Company of Elizabeth, N.J. and Grand Rapids, Michigan.
The Model 835 was named for its inline, eight-cylinder engine and its wheelbase size. The engine was built by Continental and develops 120 horsepower. The Model 835 was the most expensive Graham Paige offered with prices beginning at $2,750, about the same as a small Packard.
This 1928 Graham Paige sports a unique, boattail speedster body produced by the coachbuilder Hayes-Hunt and is one of the earliest Graham automobiles in existence.
