1929 Franklin 130 length and width

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Would anyone happen to know a rough bumper to bumper length and fender to fender width of a 1929 Franklin 130?

 

I'm considering the car advertised below and need to make sure it will fit in my garage

 

Thanks in advance!

ask to see the vid of it running and driving.  Something doesn't sound right at all.

I will try to measure mine tomorrow.

 The chrome and paint are worth the price of the better deal.

Thank you odat for the dimensions; looks like it would be a fit!
The one in Oregon looks like a really good deal, and thanks for sharing! I do not doubt that chrome and paint on a project car would put me above the 15k mark easily and quickly. Unfortunately that one is pretty far over my project car budget :-/ I'm planning on spending 5k or less for a car, which leaves me with a few k left to get started on a driver quality overhaul with lots of sweat equity :)

Mothboss, where are you located?  I've got two Franklin projects in the $5000 range here in Pennsylvania.  Good luck in your search regardless.

The cars I am looking at are not runners, but you bring up a good point Brooklyn. There a chance some of these were parked for expensive reasons decades ago. Not being able to hear one run and drive is a risk for sure. Good news is I learned there is a whole lot to like about Franklins from your car search thread earlier this year :)

 

Scott, I’m located in Gainesville Florida, what would you be interested in selling?
