Despite how cool we might think this car is today and it otherwise being quite advanced and well-built, the public of the time soundly rejected what became known as the shark-nose design. Within two years, the Graham brand name was gone from the automotive scene. After its service for war production, in 1947, Graham-Paige’s carmaking assets ended up with Kaiser-Frazer.
