On April 11th, 2011 I drove down to Pennsylvania to see Ginger, the 1929 Graham Paige 612, soon to become my own!
Hooked up to a plastic gas tank so the engine can be started. The real gas tank is probably full of crud.
Check out that spare. And the bumpers are in good shape.
The wooden spokes are awesome. They should sand up and varnish nicely.
The engine’s in great shape for such an old car. We couldn’t get the “aaaaooooogaaaa” horn to blow, but I’ll work on it.
Radiator is in great shape. It just needs to be re-chromed.
There are some additional items in the back seat including a new vinyl roof top! Funny thing about these cars is the back seat is bigger than the front.
And so it begins!
