FOR SALE - 1907 FRANKLIN Model 'D' Touring

Recommended Posts

1907 FRANKLIN Model ‘D’ 5-passenger Touring Car.  This car is one of only 3 known to exist and the only one running with it’s original authentic running gear.  The car came out of long time storage from a private collection some years ago.  It has never been to a Trek so the new owner can be the first to have that honor as well.

The car retains it’s original body and upholstery with the exception of the seat bottom cushions and carpeting. It is equipped with a complete authentic set of Solar lamps, including the rare Solar ‘Projector’ type headlamps, Solar carbide generator, horn, speedometer and many of the original tools. It appears to have never has a top installed, but we have fabricated a correct set of top bows and latching irons, and all that would be required to complete the top would be the sockets. The running boards have been rebuilt and covered with the correct white diamond rubber and brass trim. New wiring has been installed.

Since being taken out of storage the car has been serviced and participated in a Glidden Tour and the AACA 75th Anniversary Tour, completing both.  It has also received 2nd and 3rd place awards at AACA National Meets.  This large 4-cylinder Franklin is a strikingly beautiful brass-era car and is a delight to tour with.  It is eligible for the Glidden and Reliability AACA tours, HCCA tours and one of the few 4-cylinder cars eligible for the New London to New Brighton tour.  There is a collection of nice original literature that could be included as well.  Asking $97,500 and would consider a trade for an early 4-cylinder Dodge Brothers and cash.  PH (717) 645-0334 for more information.  All calls returned. Located in So. Central PA.
