HANDLES: Inside door handles and window cranks depict the same design as the hood emblem.  Gray knobs are used on standard models and tan knobs used on custom models.  Early 1938 models came with 1937 handles and cranks.  On 1940 models there is a variance in the style of handles but they were matched throughout the car.  A tee widow crank is used on the rear windows of most combination coupes.  The escutcheons are chrome plated with a plastic insert, gray for standard models, and tan for the custom models.  On some combination coupes, the escutcheons are all metal.

INSTRUMENT PANEL:  All deluxe models have the dash panel and garnish moldings Mahogany-grain, and the custom models are lacquered to harmonize with the upholstery.  The plastic inserts in the dash along with the speedometer and clock bezels, and the center grill are gray for standard/deluxe models and tan for the custom models.  The clock and speedometer hands are matched, 1938 &1939 models the hands are red and in an offset pattern.  The ’38 & ’39 speedometers have a split reading with the speed read out on top and tach readout on the bottom.  The 1940 speedometer just had the speed readout.  A cigar lighter is standard equipment on the custom models and optional on deluxe models.  A single windshield wiper motor operates both wipers with a single control on top and center of the dash.

UPHOLSTERY:  1938 AND 1939 Deluxe models have two tone Glengary gray cloth seats, doors and sidewalls.  The roof is lined with headlining cloth to match.  Mohair or leather upholstery is optional.  On custom models, Inverness brown Bedford cloth is used on the seats, doors and sidewalls, and the roof is headlined with cloth to match.  Mohair or leather upholstery is optional.  1940 Deluxe models are upholstered as follows: four door sedans and combination coupes have wool face light tan herringbone cloth on seat backs and cushions with matching cloth on doors, sidewalls, and headlining.  Two door sedans have gray twist on seat backs and cushions and matching gray cloth on headlining.  Custom models use broadcloth with two-tone combinations, unless specified, will be done as follows:

Running boards are used on the 1938 models, and optional on 1939 models.  In place of the running boards there is a rocker panel with two stainless strips trimmed in red.

                Windshield wipers lay to the outside of the windshield when at rest.

                Taillight assemblies for the four-door are larger than the taillight assemblies used on the combination coupe.  The glass is the same size.

                All three years used the same hubcap style with the name Graham printed in the center of the hubcap, with two designs above and below the name.  The letters and the inside of the designs are painted red.

                The stainless body side trim has two groves that is painted red.

                Black fender welt is used for body to fender separation and grill to fender separation.

                The spare tire on the 1938 and 1939 models lay flat in the trunk, and stand in a wheel-well in the trunk of the 1940 model.

                The trunk interior is covered with flocking to match the color of the car, and the floor is covered with a rubber mat.
