How cool is this, the fire chief bought a 1927 Graham Paige touring 621 with Woodlite headlights... and the aftermarket bumper upgrade. Some how I get the idea he was filthy rich, or someone didn't mind how much he blew on the car, maybe they lost to him at poker a lot

Check out that front bumper too, a Bright Bumper! (Factory option for Packards)



Thanks Dennis for knowing the bumper was a Bright, and
Thanks Mark for learning the car is a Jordan!

  1. This car with only half the hood length in louvres is the Graham-Paige. I think it is 1929, and I am not sure just which model, whether the bigger of the sixes or a smaller eight. The Graham-Paige name only lasted two seasons. From 1930 they were just Grahams. The other car I am not sure. I first though Marmon but I don't think it is.

  2. Just checked the links. Both are the same - going to the roadster. Tried looking at the hubcaps in close up but still none the wiser.

  3. I knew I had seen that bumper somewhere.
    Here is a post from The Old Motor in January, 2016

    Looks like it is called a "Bright Bumper"
