Graham-PalgB today Introduces

which has been a feature- of the
line for two and a half years, the
Graham-Paige company baring

The 1930 models, although rep
resenting substantially increased
value, are offered without change
of price, beginning with J 8 5 5 for
the two-door sedan, on the 612
chassis, which is now JbalH three
inches longer than formerly and
has a larger engine "
One of the most striking fea
tures of the new Graham-Paige
line is an exclusive innovation
the use of adjustable seats, rear
as well as front, in all. six-cylinder
models and the 127-inch
wheelbase eight. The. rear Beat
cushions offer a choice of two
positions, changing the depth and
the slope of tie seat. Full width,
front setvts as well as two separate
ate seats of the two-door model
612 may be shifted mechanically,
while occupied, over a wide range
of position. Since the clutch and
brake pedals of all Graham-Paige
car$, and also (except in the 612)
the- steering column, are fully ad
justable, the new models offer the
widest possible variation in driver
and passenger position. In short,
the Garham-Paige can be fitted to
each individual as if built to his
size and measurements. ' ' I J
