Franklin

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.

Jeff I installed he front sidemount fenders and sidemount arms as the original fenders are banged up I have the folding trunk rack for the rear after removing the rear mount casting.

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.

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.
