The Spirit of Motion (sharknose)

Posted on November 11, 2013 at 9:55 PM

The Spirit of Motion was only used on the 1938 and 1939 Grahams only. In 1940 The factory called it the Senior car.  This was because it was the third year of production and the factory was producing the Hollywood.  Production for the 1940 Senior car was around 1,000 cars.  The production numbers of the combination coupe and the four door sedan are not known.  The 1938 Spirit of Motion was only produced in the four door model and in 1939 along with the four door was the two door sedan and the combination coupe.  I have seen pictures of a 1938 business coupe and also it was in a movie made in France.  There were two custom bodied convertables made in Europe. There were no 1940 convertables  produced.

Production (all body styles and models) for 1938 = 4,139, for 1939 = 3,876, for 1940 = 1,000 (estimated) from Encyclopedia of American Cars 1930-1980 by Richard Langworth.

PRICES FOR A 1940 ARE 1400 FOR A PARTS CAR UP TO 54000 FOR A NUMBER ONE CAR, DEPENDING ON THE MODEL AND WHETHER IT'S SUPERCHARGED OR NOT. If you have a supercharged sharknose coupe I do know somebody looking for one ]

It all depends on the condition of the car, also what body style it is.

I am happy to pay a $500 finder's fee to someone who provides a referral for a car that I buy. I would like to become an active and supporting member of the Graham Owner's Club. Thank you!
