1933-34 Franklin chassis help


Recommended Posts

For those who have been following my threads know that I am working on a project dealing with the history of automobile X-frame designs.

I know the Franklin for 1933-34 had an X frame and wondered if there are any diagrams in shop manuals of it - such as alignment dimensions or lube... and/or any photographs from restorations showing the bare frame?

Any help greatly appreciated!

The only Franklins to have an X-member in the frame was the Olympic, which wasn't a Franklin frame at all, but a Reo frame. The V-12 may have had an X-member also, I've never been under one. In any event, Franklin produced very little documentation toward the end.

Here is a photo of a friend's 1933 Series 18B Olympic frame.
