1934 Graham Model 68 Standard Six news, pictures, and information
Chassis Num: 1626087
|Sold for $5,500 at 2007 RM Auctions.|
During the difficult era of the Great Depression, sales were slow. To help stimulate interest, a centrifugal supercharger was offered on the eight-cylinder models in 1934.
This 1934 Graham Model 68 Standard Six Sedan was offered for sale at the Vintage Motor Cars sale at Hershey, PA presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $4,000 - $6,000 and offered without reserve. The estimates proved accurate and the lot was sold for $5,500 including buyer's premium.
It is powered by a 223.9 cubic-inch six-cylinder L-head engine that produces 85 horsepower. There is a three-speed manual transmission and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. The 116-inch wheelbase is held in place by a solid front axle and live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs.
It is a weathered vehicle that has dings, dents, scratches, rust, and even a few holes. The fabric is deteriorating, the trim is in poor condition, the Graham emblem is missing, and the front bumper has been removed. The odometer displays 53,701 miles and it was last inspected in 1949 in Pennsylvania.
