I sell the modified body of a Graflex Speed Graphic. It was a mod project from a friend, never finished. I bought the camera because of the lens and shutter which I will use for my 4x5 cameras. He wanted to build a very light and basic 4x5 travelling and street camera. He got rid of the focal plane shutter and all external viewer mechanics. It was planned to cover the body with a mod skin, attach a tiny basic viewer for framing, engrave marks for standard distances on the bed and then work with hyperfocal settings.

The body is 16.5 x 18.5 x 11 cm and weighs only 1750 gr. without lens.
