This one of a kind RHD Graham Paige was first imported into the UK on June 10th 1930 by Mr Wallace, one of Al’Copones right hand men, who moved to the country in 1930 and lived in surrey where the car was registered.
Wallace came to this country with a view to set up a protection racket which the police soon became aware of.
Wallace hurriedly but quietly returned to the United States leaving the car in a garage in Surrey where it was stored for approximately 30 years.
Mr John Collard of Bracknell in Surrey acquired the car in the 1960’s from a private owner in Wokingham, \surrey who told him of the previous history of the car.
Graham Paige’s were popular with gangsters due to their reliability, strength and getaway performance.
Mr Collard was responsible for a major restoration carried out from 1965-1967.
The car then changed hands until Mrs Joyce Eleanor Moss of Bracknell, Surrey acquired the car on June 3rd 1985. Mrs Joyce owned the car for 4 years and then sold the car to Mr Peter Nelson.
Mr Nelson displayed the car at the ‘Cars of the Stars’ Motor Museum in Keswick for the next 18 years with the colorful history displayed next to it.
In 2006 this Graham Paige was sold into the trade and subsequently the original registration PL 625 was changed to the current plate BF 4031. Sold by the garage in 2007 this 610 was then bought by the current owner in 2012.
The mileage shown is 26,000 and is believed to be genuine.
This one off Graham Paige is in our showroom and ready for viewing, not only the car but also the extensive history file as well.
