5x7 SPEED GRAPHIC - INFO PLEASE

Some time ago I was offered 5 x 7 Speed Graphic. It took conventional 5x7 film holders such as Lisco.

I am now looking to find one again for regular use.

If anyone can give me any info it would be very much appreciated.

I realise they do not come along that often and I expect to be searching ebay and other sites for a long time.

Regards
Peter

I saw one on ebay just a couple of weeks ago...so have faith.

From what I can see on graflex.org, the only 5x7s were Pre-Anniversary Speed Graphics (1928-1939).

Thanks Steve.
There were a few very early 5x7 such as the Cycle Graphic, 'Top Handle' etc. but these are way too old.

The one that I saw was a 5x7 made between 1932 - 1941. The owner had fitted a Kalart RF. He made the arm to suit. Very well done and it worked like a charm.

Regards
Peter
