1937 Graham Series 116 news, pictures, specifications, and information

Convertible Coupe Worblaufen
Coachwork: Worblaufen
 
Like many American automobile companies, Graham exported automobiles to Europe. This Graham was shipped to Switzerland as a chassis and received a body designed and built by the coach building firm Worblaufen.

The 116 Series was built on a 116-inch wheelbase chassis and was powered by a six-cylinder, supercharged engine that provided an exciting ride.

This Graham remained in Europe for its entire life, until acquired three years ago by the current owner who proceeded to perform a complete, body-off restoration.
Graham introduced its supercharged models in 1934. The Great Depression was in full swing, as was the cylinder wars. Cadillac and Marmon both have V-16 cars, and many other manufacturers were offering high-horsepower Twelve and Eight cylinder cars.

Graham originally used only the supercharger on the 8-cylinder models. By 1936, the supercharger was adapted to the 6-cylinder engine. The Model 116 was one of the models with the supercharged version of the six-cylinder engine, and it had a wheelbase that measured 116-inches.
