FRANKLIN 1928 AIRPLANE (SPIRIT OF ST. LOUIS) HOOD ORNAMENT / CAR MASCOT

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

attached you can see a repop of a 1928? Franklin Airplane hood ornament. Is there anybody out there, who has an old photo showing an authentic airplane on a car? I have been looking for it for quite some time now. Whereas the later model of the airplane for the 147 series is shown in the Franklin accessory catalog, I could not find any evidence for this earlier example which must have been something like a optional extra for the 12-B? The lack of any pictorial or documentary evidence makes me wonder whether or not it has existed at all!? 

 

Any help is much appreciated,

thanks

Matt
