Super Rare ’31 Graham Prosperity 6 Gets Patina Treatment

We’re guessing that the car you see here will be one that is unfamiliar to most of you, and to be honest it was one that was new to us as well. We originally saw it over on Autoholics.com and the owner was running a “name that car” competition, and very few people were able to come through and accurately point out that it was a 1931 Graham Prosperity 6.

The owner reported that while he had never heard of the car himself, he liked it, and it was a relatively solid platform from which to build a rat rod. The entire body had only 3 rust holes in it in total, but while 50% of the wood in the car was rotted in gone, the other half was A-OK! The car was given the rat rod treatment and the results are as seen here.

Curiosity got the better of us so we spent a little time researching the Graham car company. It was actually the Graham-Paige company that was comprised of the Graham Brothers and a Canadian man named Ray Austin. They produced vehicles from 1927 to 1940, after which all automotive assets were acquired by Kaiser-Frazer in 1947.

The Graham Paige company was somewhat of a rebirth of the Graham Brothers company, a company that created trucks and was absorbed into Dodge in the late 1920’s.
