25 HP, 199.1 cid Overhead Valve, Air-Cooled 6-Cylinder Engine, 3-Speed Transmission Engine No. E82192 Using only the highest quality materials and craftsmanship, Franklin automobiles adhered to their original designs with exact measurements. They were the main focus of the company and their reputation for dependability and endurance was proved when a 1924 model drove across country, a total of 3,720 miles, in just 13 days, quite an accomplishment considering the condition of many roads at the time. While these cars enjoyed decent sales, 10,130 units for 1923, dealers found it hard to sell a car without at least a radiator shell so that they would blend with the rest of the cars used a radiator to keep their engines cooled. They would get their wish midyear 1925, leaving earlier models such as this example as a transition point for the marque. Sporting a professional level restoration this frisky Franklin looks like it is ready to hit the road. With the body done in a tasteful light green with black pin-stripe, the fenders are done in gloss black featuring body-color pin-stripping. The interior of the car is very presentable and appears to be done in a combination of black leather and vinyl with matching door panels. Atop the one-piece, forward hinged hood sits this car's original sitting lion mascot and below, Franklin's motto "Aura Vincit", which translated mean "Air Conquers". Under the hood, the massive aluminum cover steals the show with most of its mechanics in very good to excellent condition. Mounted on the passenger side running board is a metal toolbox with nickel plated front and rear bumpers. One of the most interesting aftermarket accessories is a genuine windshield mounted Clymer Spotlight! If you are worried about taking a vintage car on tour and overheating, this Franklin would serve as a perfect alternative, and a classy ride at its best.
