After the 1938-39 Grahams, known as the Sharknose because of their forward leaning grilles, were a flop, as a last ditch effort to stay in business and create a “new” car, a deallwas cooked up involving Graham, Hupmobile and the body stamping dies left over from the Cord 810/812 after E.L. Cord decided to get out of the car biz. Designer John Tjaarda gave the coffin-nosed Cord a new nose and face and Graham started producing bodies for both companies, with the companies replacing the front wheel drive Cord mechanicals with their own chassis and drivetrains. Like most last ditch efforts, they didn’t succeed. The cars, though, the Graham Hollywood and the Hupp Skylark, are interestingly welcome at a variety of car shows. In addition to being shown at Graham and Hupp meets, the’re welcome at many events for Cords and the related brands of Duesenberg and Auburn. A couple of years ago the Concours of America had a special class for the recycled Cord bodied cars, which is where these photos were taken.
