Sorry i dont know how to up load photo but the above link is my wifes facebook with a picture of my graham.
I will ask my daughter when she comes this weekend to upload pic for me.
My name is Robert Ortega, I bought my "graham 39" 40 years when i was 18 years old. I purchased the car for $950 in 1974. It is almost fully restored. Had it painted two tone (black n gray). I am a welder by trade and i designed & fabricated my own customs stainless parts. Due to puttiing my 2 daughters through private schools and college, it took my approx 25years to take it in to a shop. As a matter of fact it was recent in the shop for 6 months it now runs again like a chAMP. I had several compliment and offers to sell. But no way. I also have a 57 Chevy fully restored.
For the Graham Im looking for the trim that goes down the center of the grill. It s the only part I have missing. I also need to find the weather stripping for the windows. If anyone can tell me where to purchase it please email me at [email protected] or pls call collect 209-598-7856. THank you, Robert Ortega
