Franklin

17 posts in this topic

In honor of this very cool 32 Franklin coupe that Mike West is selling we need to start a thread for Classic Era Franklin. 

 

Somebody needs to step up and buy this.   I don't want to hear any complaining that it is expensive getting a CCCA car as Mike only wants 15k for this.

Nice Franklin. Dual sidemounts and a rear spare? Must be a business coupe for someone in west Texas.

This 1929 FRANKLIN VICTORIA BROUGHAM  was for sale last year on eBay for 17,500.   Did you buy it Mike?

That makes sense. I read that some Model A Fords were sold to salesmen in west Texas, who needed that many spares to get to El Paso and back. Lots of puncture vine on the roads, I guess, though not a huge # of salesmen hitting the road in '32 Franklin Coupes.

Mike,  did your car originally have wooden wheels?

No That's a 1931 . Notice the hood has only 3 vent doors?? The 1932 cars have  4 equally spaced .  Other than that its similar.

Also notice the 31 car has a sunvisor built into the body and doesn't have a embossed  body line in the hood and cowl.
