The first Frazers, the Frazer (Standard) line, were built by Graham-Paige Motors under a worksharing agreement with Kaiser-Frazer. Costs of operations proved more than G-P could bear, so the firm sold its interests to K-F.

Standard (non-Manhattan) Frazers bearing serial numbers up to F47-009940 (1001 was the first number) are G-P products, and bear the nameplates of that old-line company. That historical aspect plus rarity puts these models in a class apart from K-F-built Frazers this year.
