1933 Graham Custom 8 news, pictures, specifications, and information
In June of 1927, the Graham brothers, Joseph, Robert, and Ray, purchased the Paige-Detroit Motor Car Company. The four models offered by Paige prior to the acquisition continued until the close of the year. At which time, the new Graham-Paige automobiles were introduced consisting of both six- and eight-cylinder models. During their first full year as a company, more than 73,000 cars were sold. The name 'Paige' was finally dropped after 1930, though the company name was still the Graham-Paige Motor Corporation.

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.
