    Franklin Models

    The Hudson Miniatures show up on eBay, I have one and attempted to build one many many decades ago. They are not for the fumble fingered. I remember seeing pictures of the model made in Arizona and was not impressed with the fidelity of scale. There was just something that was "off" about it. Gordon
  3. Oh, ok, thanks, that clears it up for me.
  4. Paul, My 1930 the rod goes under the diff and upwards to the attachments, could the 32-34s be different? Gordon
  5. That is a nice looking Series 11.They are a much different car than Series 10. The correct body style name is Sport Sedan. First one I've seen with a leather interior, most likely redone. I think you you are referring to the foot brake being on the driveshaft. True, it is two wheel braking which was almost universal then. It will lock the rear wheels and I am speaking from experience. Just have to keep in mind you don't have the stopping power of modern cars. Well worth going after if the mechanical condition is as good as the rest of the car. Gordon Howard
  6. That amount of sag is pretty standard and will increase little if any. I had a Series 11B for 40 years with that amount it never increased noticeably, so I would not be concerned unless you are going for a 100 point resto. You might want to inquire if the stuff under the car is supporting it. This being a S 12 I won't comment on the other matter. Gordon Howard
  7. This mess is in Missouri and needs to be saved. The body is hopeless and frame is broken but everything, bumper to bumper, is there. Complete drive train with free motor, all the dash, excellent tail light, Vacuum tank, gas gauge , etc. eBay auction #303112228660. It is listed in eBay motors vintage car &truck parts other parts Gordon Howard
  8. The working surface of the drum is rusty. Very little can be removed on these stamped steel drums before they are too thin to use. The value depends on cleaning the drum and seeing what is left. Gordon H.
  9. Is that left front wheel a wire, no brake drum.
  10. The rusty items are cylinders, the others are cylinder heads and piston/connecting rods for 1930 and later Franklins Gordon Howard
  11. Har-de-har har. When the cow does jump over the moon.
  12. It has an 18B serial # plate and 18A front fenders. As of 7 pm on Thursday the high bid is $54,100, two fools that won't quit. Wish I was the seller. Gordon
  13. Owners of the above should check out listing 163482104812 . Notice anything unusual about this car? Gordon Howard

    Model 10C Exhaust

    I'd go with that. Did it on my 147 using stainless flex for the tail pipe. I think it will be louder than a1.5" though, so you could use a 2 to 1.5" reducer and 1.5" pipe.
  15. What Olympic had a swing out windshield?
