  1. Mothboss, where are you located? I've got two Franklin projects in the $5000 range here in Pennsylvania. Good luck in your search regardless.

    24 manuals

    I guess I WASN'T certain. I see the S11 catalog available on Amazon but not for S10. You'll need to contact the club librarian. I'll text you.

    Hi Roger! The club librarian can help you, or, I believe both of those are now printed on demand when you order them from Amazon. I'm certain the parts catalog is available that way. Text me if you have questions. Scott
  6. I heard "over $8000 plus a $1700 auction fee". No idea who bought it. Does anyone know who bought it or where it's headed?
  7. Hi folks, I have a couple of Franklin projects I'd like to sell to better address some health concerns I'm having. First one is a 1925 11A sedan. I bought this a year ago from the family of the second owner. We dropped the pan, replaced the oil pump, added a pan gasket, checked the rod & main bearings, removed the gas tank to clean and seal it, cleaned out the vacuum tank, etc etc. The car runs and shifts fine but is a PROJECT. There are frame issues, the paint job the previous owners had done did not adhere. Supposedly they got their money back for it, but in any event it will need to be painted. There are a number of other issues with the car making it a PROJECT. I do have a clear title in my name. Car is in Tunkhannock, Pa which is 2 hours from Cazenovia in a modern car. Transportation can be arranged. $7000 Scott Arnold 5702376067
  8. Mike, I may have an extra window crank. I'll look this weekend and let you know. I think I have a few heaters as well. Swartz, I have a lot of '29 parts. If there's something you're looking for just let me know. Thanks, Scott
  9. My friend has a few from V8 Cadillacs. His car is a 1920 but some of the spares may be earlier. Just message me if this is something that may work for you and I'll put you in touch with him. Good luck!
  10. Welcome to the world of Franklins! Your engine appears to be a 1925. The oldest known '25 engine in the printed registry is engine E98078 with the newest '25 engine printed being E106823. It can be a bit more complicated than that, but that is the quick answer. I encourage you to join the Franklin Club as you'll receive a wealth of information. If you know the serial number of your car we can figure out some additional information. Good luck!
  11. For sale! 1925 Franklin 11A sedan. I bought this from the family of the second owner, in non running condition. This summer we dropped the gas tank, cleaned it all out, cleaned vacuum tank, dropped the pan, checked and set all rod and main bearings, etc. After a bunch of little things and after a bunch of new gaskets the car now runs well. The pictures actually do it TOO much justice; the car still needs some love, but I'd like to sell it before winter, thus a pretty fair price. Good title in my name. $9800. Please comment or send me a message and I'll tell you all about it. Other Franklins for sale if you call the house phone and my wife answers, haha. Car is in Tunkhannock, Pa which is near Scranton and and mere 2 hours north of Hershey, hint hint. I can deliver to Hershey.

    any interest?

    Hi Roger, I'd be interested as well. If you place a "Who-would-be-interested" ad in the next Franklin Service Station, you'll reach a lot of members who may not use the computer much. Great idea, Scott

    I have the hubcaps you need. I'll sends yout a message. Definitely contact Jeff Hasslen for the felt oil pads. Good luck with your car!
  14. Hi Keith! Club member Jeff Hasslen produces very high quality gaskets of literally every gasket for that engine. Find his contact info on the HH Franklin club website under parts. If this info is a $35 lifesaver to you, please consider joining the club or encouraging the vehicle's owner to join the club. Good luck with the engine and please keep us posted!
  15. Correction: Engine # is 110819. I accidentally listed serial number the car was back-in-the-day.
  16. FOR SALE: RUNNING 1926 series 11A engine. #162611. I bought this spare engine along with a series 11 coupe in the Fall of 2014. Over that winter my dad tore it apart and got it running well. NOTE: This engine has not been "rebuilt", meaning that while it is now in fine running condition, it does still have it's original Babbitt. We put this engine in my series 10 sedan last Spring, and drove the car with it for the past year while my original sedan engine was at the machine shop. YES, this is the engine I used in my car for the past year. I drove the sedan to my dad's garage in March and we pulled this engine out. Another club member was going to purchase this for a project, but has since gone in a different direction, so I now have this completely running engine available for sale. This can be dropped right in your Franklin for trips to the ice cream stand, sent out for rebuild, or displayed prominently in your living room (with exhaust funneled out a window of course). Engine is located between Scranton, PA and Binghamton, N.Y. and is about a 2 hour drive from Cazenovia. $4000. Please contact me for additional information. Scott Arnold 5702376067
  17. What size is this? I think I may see a Franklin belt buckle in my future!
  18. Congratulations Robert! Hopefully you've already joined the Franklin Club. The Club is a wealth of knowledge and will be to assist you keeping car the road. Look up Jeff Hasslen under "For sale-parts" on the club website for your gasket needs. Mike West probably has just about everything else your list. He'll see post get a hold of you. Where are from? Good luck! Scott Arnold
  19. I couldn't BELIEVE this didn't sell instantly when you listed it here previously. It's a Peerless, people, come on! Great piece of automotive history here, at an unbeatable price. Good luck with your sale. I'm sure will this time. Scott
  20. Sailboat underneath optional, lol.
  21. There's been one for sale on NJ Craigslist for a while now for $1500 looks nice. I realize that doesn't meet your description but just wanted you to be aware. Who knows what they may take for it, or if they have or know of others. Now, I also know of this one...which is exactly what you describe. It will be about 3 weeks until I can talk to the owner about it. Please message me your contact information. Pic to follow... Good luck, Scott
  22. Hi Jim, I've been following this as I'm sure others have since it is winter for many of us and TALKING Franklins may be all we do for a few months! I'm really concerned with you trying to drive the car to further diagnose the problem. At this point we know there is a problem. It may be a "simple" problem now, but without KNOWING I don't recommend driving the car. I'm attaching a photo of my engine...It made a sound and I didn't get it shut down in time. I can't describe how quickly this escalated! The car then sat for a year and a half. I write this from heart. I will send you my contact information. I think my dad and I help you remotely. Good luck, can't wait for you to get it on the road! Scott
  23. I talked to this gentleman two weeks ago. He is the one who had the block for sale listed as a series 11B block in North Carolina. Turns out is a 1929 block located outside of Buffalo, N.Y. (nothing fishy, he had unknowingly listed the engine with his son's address) Anyway, he bought the car 35+ years ago from the original owner. A gentleman had purchased the car for his son as a gift for graduating high school! He was a longtime club member who at some point over the years let his membership expire. He said he had it at the Trek 30 or 33 years ago. He said he restored Model As and such for many years but now is into muscle cars and just doesn't use the Franklin much anymore. -Scott Arnold
  24. I'll be having a set made for my 22 10B this spring. I will check to see what years used my part # and repost to see if anyone else is interested. Depending on the price from the machine shop, I may have a few extra sets produced. Scott Arnold
