  1. Rear Bumper Medallion

    Hi, I m still looking for an original, or a reproduction, round rear bumper medallion (top silhouette of an airplane, Franklin drawing number 40847) for my 1930 - 145. If you don't have one, might you know someone that does? Thanks for your help! John
  2. Do you still have the 1931 instruction book?
  3. I had another good visit / parts search with Mike West today. He is getting around even better than when I saw him a couple of weeks ago. Mike showed my father and I his 1933 Franklin pickup truck that he and his father restored, what a BEAUTIFUL truck! So far, Mike has helped me with proper 1930 bumper pieces, headlight reflectors, parking light lenses, and grill shutter linkage. We have some more digging to do on a couple more items, but it is really nice to run into a guy that has such a good stash of Franklin parts. Mike had a Franklin sign on the wall and a phrase that made me laugh, “Where the shaft is sold, not given”. Again, thanks Mike, you help is very much appreciated!
  4. I visited Mike West today, he is up and about and was very helpful with my Franklin parts needs. Thanks again, Mike!
  5. I own of a 1930 Franklin Model 145 Deluxe Sedan. There are some parts that are missing or incorrect on the car that I would like to locate: One original or reproduction crank hole cover (Drawing number 45103) One accelerator foot pedal block (Franklin drawing number 39389) One round rear bumper medallion and backer plate (top silhouette of an airplane, Franklin drawing number 40847) One complete rear foot rest assembly (for reference, left foot bracket drawing number 47376) One vanity case (Franklin drawing number 46183, but I would consider any complete vanity case from the same era Franklin) One smoker's set (Drawing number 46182, but I would consider any complete smoker's set from the same era Franklin) One gas tank filler cap assembly (Franklin drawing number 47485) Please contact me if you have any of these parts, or you might recommend that I contact a particular person. Thank you! jhdillman@gmail.com
