1940-41 Graham Hollywood sedan

This beautiful old Graham was parked in the garage at the Oakland Museum last Friday night. It looks so stylish.

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.

  1. Automobile styling peaked in the 1930's. Too bad it did not survive WW2. Everything looks like a running shoe now and to get to that every form of ugliness has been tried. Pity.
    La Salle quit in the year of my birth but there were still many around when I started noticing cars.

  2. Appears to be a 1941 Hupmobile Skylark. Only 319 were produced. Modeled after the 1937 Cord but less expensive.

  3. Most likely a 1940-41 Graham Hollywood Sedan since both grilles seems to be chromed.
    The similar Hupmobile Skylark had only the lower grill in chrome and the upper parts in bodycolour.
