The Hemmings blog has been finding some interesting items for its "Find of the Day" recently. Yesterday, for example, the featured car was the above 1941 Graham Hollywood. I've always found the Hollywood interesting, because it was the second partial resurrection of the 1936 Cord 810 sedan (below).
So in 1941, Graham produced the Hollywood. Like the Cord, the Hollywood had a high horsepower, supercharged engine. Unlike the Cord, the Hollywood was a traditional front engine/rear wheel drive layout; as opposed to the Cord's advanced, front wheel drive design. Neither the Skylark nor the Hollywood featured the Cord's distinctive "coffin" nose or retractable headlamps, but the exterior design was otherwise the same. This repeated resurrection of the original design demonstrates why the Cord, and its subsequent iterations, are considered classics.
