  1. Very nice car ....... with a very fair price... a good driver, and a very nice paint job... If I had the money.... I would be driving it home...
  2. Dr. Hedberg.... We are not devaluing your car..... we are looking at it closely... and noticing that it has plywood on the roof and that it is parked with the windows open.... and that those cheap blue, woven plastic tarps leak and last only a few months outside..... The car may run well... but the condition of the body, and probably the interior/roof... show us that the market value is about half of the $10,000 you are asking..... If you Truly want to sell 'her' before you move..... place your ads here and on Craigslist for $5K.... and see what type of response you get.... Believe it or not.... we are trying to help you sell your car.... while trying to give you a realistic idea of the market value of such a car...... I bought this flawless 1928 dodge for $5k.... a few years ago... it was in mush better condition than yours.... Best of luck with your sale...
  3. Thanks, for your advise, and comments..... I owned a 1930 Franklin 4 door sedan... that weighed right at 4,000 lbs..... it would cruse at 50-55 mph all day long..... and in real rough dirt roads is was very smooth..... The AA truck weighs 2,800 lbs and If I put about a half ton in it, it would weigh about the same as the Franklin sedan....... The AA has strong radius rods that keep the axles steady.... and the Full Elliptic springs could easily be mounted on brackets fabricated to the frame and axles..... Add some coil over shocks and you have a good stable, floating-like ride on rough roads.... The model A &AA transverse front and rear springs... give a poor, rough ride on pot holed, washboard, dirt roads... that is the reason most cars & trucks of that same Era, used four, half elliptic, leaf springs... giving a much better ride than any Model A or AA Ford...... I can not afford to have a professional spring shop, fabricate the mounting perches and brackets for parallelly mounted leaf springs....... I know there are may opinions about what to do or not do... and how to best do it.... But, this posting is asking if anyone has some Franklin, or now, Stanly Steamer,.... Full Elliptic Springs..... For Sale...???
  4. I know the Franklins had them front & back.... giving them a very smooth ride..... in very rough roads. Did other makes have the Full Elliptic springs...?? If so, What makes and what years..?? If anybody has some extra spare sets of the Full Elliptic springs.... I am interested in buying some..... my Model AA has a very stiff, back braking, jolting ride,..... on washboard, country dirt roads..... and I am seeking a smoother ride for it..... Please contact me if you have some springs you might sell me... thanks, Sunny 505-990-6008
  5. SOLD I have a good running model A motor..... starts real easy first few cranks... No smoke at all..... revs up smooth and strong,.... presently in a AA express truckI am installing a newer, bigger 4 cylinder 'Hurricane' engine..... Complete engine, from oil pan to carb, from fan to end of bell housing ...Located in southern New Mexico 3 hours from El Paso TX. 3 hours from Tucson, AZ. and 3.5 hours from Albuquerque NM. Very good price on a good running engineI do not know the history on the engine, I just bought the truck, and the PO didn't know either..... Buy it as is.... Could put it on a pallet and ship to you, if you pay the freight charge..... contact Sunny @ 505-990-6008 or PM me.....

    Ok... First I will say.. these are not going onto a Franklin... I am building my own chassis and running gear.... so I was hoping to get some springs from the heavier models of Franklins .... about 2,500 lbs. to 3, 700 lbs. So I was hoping that someone with Franklin parts, might tell me what type and size of springs you have.. (length, width and number of leafs).... photos of them would help me know if they will work for my project..... . Thank you, Sunny sunnybabaspirit@yahoo.com

    Thanks for the advice Walt..... I would like to actually have front and rear... (4 sets ) of springs from a Franklin series 14,15,16, or 19, but would consider earlier series as well... It would also be nice to have the spring perches as well and the mounting bolts, if you have those as well .....
  9. Hi Mike... Your Franklin Truck is Beautiful...... and I bet it handles real will even at freeway speeds.... I am looking for a set (two) front, full elliptic springs from a Franklin...... in good useable condition.... Might you have some for sale.....????? if, so PM me... or email me.... sunnybabaspirit@yahoo.com
  10. Look closer..... the bottom photo of the roadster, has wooden spoke wheels....... How could one side of the roadster have wire wheels and the other side wooden spokes..?? The tarp is not even tied down... just a flick of the wrist and it is off... poor way to sell anything...
  11. You might want to add a few interior shots...
