On this date in 1940 the Graham-Paige Motors Corporation reopened its factory to build a final run of Series 133 Graham Hollywood Custom sedans using the Cord 810/812 body dies.

It's amazing how the Graham Hollywood looks more dated than the Cord. Were they built this way just to be less expensive?

Notice the grill on the Hollywood. Very 1940ish! Looks like the front-end of my 1941 Chevy pickup!

A CHEVY???

You...you...TRAITOR!

:Djk :D

I think the disappearing headlights and hood louvers contributed a lot to the "modern" look of the Cord. When Graham replaced them with "typical" features it put the design back in 1937. Still a good-looking barge, though.

Is there a picture of a Skylark to compare sheet metal, did they share front end designs?

The only exterior diffs between the Skylark and the Hollywood were nameplates and badges. Plus, both grilles were chrome on the Graham, the upper one was painted on the Hupp.
