We own a 1939 GB that is loaned to a museum right now. A man saw it a few weeks ago and wanted to know if we wanted to sell it. we don"t but, he said that there are only like 30 documented left around. Seems kinda low to me but I was wondering if anyone on here has and idea of about how many are still around.

The catch word is "Documented"
That could be true, but there are more of them in the country than the ones documented.
I went to a show a few years ago, and there were aboot 50 on display.
They are scarce, but not rare.

Thanks for the replies. I don"t have the serial number here as right now my tractor is at Discovery Park on display. I will go out there soon and get it and send it to you for your records.

The man we got it from said there were not alot of them left but I had never heard for sure how many or a rough estimate. 350-400 still isn"t alot but definately more than 50 or so. They do get attention when at a show.

Mine is a rowcrop.

I am a member of the Graham Owners Club International. http://www.graham-paige.com/ Its a car and truck club but many rototillers and very a few tractors turn up. They started tractor production in 1937 with 237 units to be marketed by Sears. 1938 saw production of 1532 units, and 1939 saw 438 unit shipped. How many still exist is anyone's guess, but it is a surety that you have a rare tractor there. I have never seen one in person. Does it have a Continental engine like the cars did?

A few years ago, I went to a small town Fourth of July celebration. They had the usual antique tractor/auto/truck display, and one was a Graham-Bradley tractor. I had never seen one until then. According to what the owner told me, engine was the same as you mention. It was a flat head, six cylinder, but I didn't notice anything other than that. It quite stylish considering when it was built. I had to go to the car for more film and by the time I got back he had loaded it up and left, so I missed any photos.
