For Sale: 1933 Franklin Olympic 18A Sedan

This car was displayed in the Bridgewater Museum on Rte 20 in NY for many years. Most of the mechanicals have been redone including a freshly rebuilt engine and drive train. The car is currently fitted with a Scout II rear axle with new 3.73 gears for better top end speeds (original axle ratio was 4.30:1). Aside from a modified driveshaft this a bolt-in installation using custom wheel adapters to mate the orinal wire wheels and give the correct wheel-to-wheel width. The paint and interior are in fair condition. This a very complete car with little rust and minor dents & dings.

The car is located in North Carolina and the asking price is $10,500.

A handsome car, seems like that would find a new home quickly, would be a great driver. Do you have the original rear axle that goes with car? What shape is the interior in?

I do have the original axle but am holding for another project. I would consider selling if required. Here are some interior pics.
