Reply John Roberts, Graham & Reo
John, I don't believe Graham and Reo shared mechanics, although they were similar to one another. The A-6 Reo was a 90 HP six, displacing 228CID, with 7 main bearings, and rode on a 115" wheelbase. They sold poorly in 1936 and that ended their passenger car production.
The Graham Cavalier had a supercharged 217.8 CID six and also rode on a 115" WB. They used this body style for 2 years, 1936 and '37. In 1938, they brought out the very controversial "Spirit of Motion", also picked up the nickname "Sjarknose". This car has always been a favorite of mine and I have the Brooklin version of the coupe and the NEO 4 door sedan. Unfortunately they sold poorly and production ended in 1940. There was one more Graham before production ended forever, like Reo. A reworked Cord Westchester sedan body, on a Graham chassis, and called it the Hollywood. Hupmobile shared the body, and called it the Skylark. So much handwork was needed to put these cars into production, that nobody made any money, and the public was not buying. This is just a brief history.
