  1. Here is 2 more great shots of Dons Speedster a few weeks ago.
  2. Im having 12 headlight switch handles cast in yellow brass for the 29-30 switch. If anyone needs one, contact me. Mike 585 738 1541
  3. Wanted a trunk in good condition or a trunk that can provide the hardware needed for a Speedster, Victoria, or Club Sedan. I can build the wood structure from the factory drawings, but hoping to buy a donor truck for the trim and hardware. See the PDF in this post. Thank you, Mike 585 738 154143164 TRUNK.pdf
  4. Switches Sold Out last one going to Al Capone...... I didn't know he drove a FRANKLIN>>>>
  5. Hi Wayne , I missed this post. These switches are 2 contact NOS (period) and absolutely correct. Here is a photo. Ive sold several and may have only 1 left. The outside barrel OD is 1 inch I believe but do know it fit my 31,32 and 33 Franklins perfectly. I can check this size if you are still interested. Mike
  6. Send your pattern to NC Industries Antique Car Parts Sayre PA (Google their web page) Talk with Kevin- the owner. They are wonderful and very affordable. They have made 3 windshield frames and many side window frames for me in the past. The workman ship is very good. I always make send the pattern in a box large enough for the return trip of the new frame as well. He makes all make frames A-Z ! Mike
  7. Merry Christmas to all! I need gauges for this Packard as someone in the past replaced them with 1950s SW units . I have the original dash panel. The Franklin service truck is a 1933 16B Airman.
  8. Take a look at Chicago Craigslist. There is a decent looking 33 with sidemounts for sale. Price is a bit tall , but make a offer!
  9. $500-700 They are the best carburetor for the 1929 Franklins.
  10. My 29 has a T-77 4/speed. Whoever installed it,left the 29 emergency brake casting rivoted to the frame. I like the transmission, shifts with ease.
  11. I am selling 4 NOS Clum ignition switches with keys. These are new old stock, not reproduction. They are shown in the Franklin factory drawings # 51211. The face plate that shows when installed has nickel or chrome plating. $100.00 each shipping included. Will post pictures soon. Mike 585 738 1541 mawest729@gmail.com
  12. I think they are great. The Hudson looks wonderful. Please post a side view shot. In my case the box was made up from ash and irons that were salvaged from a original Franklin sedan body . A nice vehicle was made from a car that was previously damage/altered years ago. I have chrome posts and rails to attach to the top of the box like the period wreckers and service cars had. Mike
  13. Its a very scarce low production car ,but overpriced in my opinion. I know of a wonderful older rstored coupe ,same year and model at 25000
