Previously bought for my former 1917 Franklin 9-A Touring:

I have:

two (2) distributor caps (Dome-shaped 4-1/8 inch OD)

    One appears NOS

    Other seems used but excellent

one (1) rotor - may be new, may not, but excellent

other related points and stuff


These were bought back in the 1970s when I paid $150/each for the caps, $80 for the rotor, and cannot recall what for the other miscellany back then.

Here it is nearly 50 years later. The car has been passed along to a new home 24 years ago, along with most related stuff.


I just "found" these while searching for the step plates (still haven't found them).



The parts are likely worth more than I paid for them,

but I have no immediate use for them and will entertain REASONABLE offers,

and I can bring them to Hershey.
