For Sale & Delivered to AACA HERSHEY- Franklin Dietrich Poster, 1909 Homan Trophy


Recommended Posts

Hello All,

 

I have two larger items from my collection that I am offering for sale, ONLY to be picked up at the AACA Fall Hershey Pennsylvania meet in two weeks. These are large or fragile pieces, so I will not be shipping them. Payment via Paypal is expected before the show, to ensure that they get packed and taken to PA with us for pick-up at our vendor space- they will NOT be brought to the show if they are not already paid for in full prior to the meet. Prices are firm, no offers, please.

 

 1930 Franklin Dietrich body convertibe sedan SHOWROOM POSTER with Charles Lindbergh

Original from a Connecticut dealership I got about 40 years ago. Folds in paper from when it was sent to dealer when new in the mail. Excellent condition. Shows Charles Lindbergh in the car the Franklin Company lent him for a year to use. 36 1/2 x 24 inch poster in 27 x 40 inch frame . Small crack in glass at lower edge of frame. Frame was fitted 40 years ago when I acquired the poster. Amazing original and large in size. Franklin called this body style the 'speedster' and the open speedster was a custom order Today I know of 3 convertible speedsters in existence. 

Price is firm at $3,800 for the poster delivered to Hershey Fall meet.

 

1909 Trophy - winged wheels . Made by Homan Mfg. Co. of "special metal " ( their description on bottom) Quadrupile plate ( their description) No. BO88. Base is 8 inches in diameter, top opening is 6 inches in diameter , 19 inches tall, tires are 6 1/2 inches, distance between outer edges of tires total is 18 inches.  Very heavy! my guess  is the base metal is  pewter or German silver? Silver  Plating is worn not perfect, there are a few minor dents under base, at edge and in tire tread area. It is 110 years old!

No date on the trophy, but there were a pair of them ( no I do not have the other one) and that one was engraved with a date of a car race which was 1909.

Price is firm at $4,750 delivered to Hershey Fall meet.
