1937 Graham Model 116 Supercharger. Quartz gray metallic with a gray interior. This ’37 Supercharger has just completed a full restoration. A rare, striking car, this Graham is excellent in both body and paint, having been refinished to a high quality. The eye catching louvers and other chrome remain in great condition also, and even the hood latches and hood rests appear like new. As striking as the exterior is, however, the interior is doubly so. All seating and door panels, complete with crosshatch piping, has been meticulously redone. The dark woodgrained trim and dash panels are also spectacular, as is the unique chromed center dash section. The large gauges are indistinguishable from new. All in all, this ’37 Graham is a rare, solid, breathtaking collectible in uniquely pristine condition.
Graham first introduced its supercharged models in 1934 to an American market hungry for more power. Originally used only on the 8 cylinder models, the supercharger was adapted to the 6 cylinder engine in 1936. The Model 116 was the recipient of one such engine, and rested on a 116” wheelbase, as its nomenclature suggests. Graham faltered by 1941-42, making these cars a very rare find.
The Graham 116 Supercharger is the epitome of late 30s luxury motoring. On entering the striking automobile, the first thing that catches your eye is the pristine gray interior. Dark wood trim accents a multitude of areas, including the clean and clear dash panel right in front of you. This is a car that not only looks good, but drives exceptionally well. Put it in gear, and you’ll note the ease at which the engine spools up, thanks to the supercharger. The ride is very smooth, and the overall experience like no other automobile.
