This car was formerly in the Bill Harrah collection, Sparks, Nevada, USA. Side view photo is from 1981 when it was sold from the collection. Tail picture is current day and mid restoration. Third photo is thought to be the same car during WWII when used by a French general.

Cool car but the 200k plus asking price seems a bit steep considering it will take another 200k plus to restore it.

Given the driving lights, this looks to be the same as the other period picture.

Yes, Saoutchik bodied two Graham's with this design.

At least two, most possibly four according to some historians.

When it was on eBay a few years ago (for quite a bit of money) I knew somebody would buy it just for this reason. Very hard to find something unique to bring to Pebble.
