Gee, I never heard so many Franklin people try to talk someone out of a Franklin. I agree with Mike West's price suggestion, but the rest of you seem to be talking it too far down into the ground. It depends a lot on ones own ability and how far one wants to go. Not all Franklin's need a $10,000 engine rebuild nor should they have one. Wiring on a Franklin is simple and can be done in stages with the available wiring harnesses on the market. The car itself looks good as is and would probably get more positive attention then the same one restored to 100 points. Just because Lahti35 said he was unfamiliar with Franklns doesn't mean he knows nothing about old cars. The big question is why doesn't it run. Is it free? Maybe just sitting and it could be electrical or fuel and just in need of a complete overall inspection inside and out to insure the engines integrity. Gee guys, give the car a break!
