The Franklin Automobile Company made cars in Syracuse USA between 1902-1934. What was unique about these cars was that they were air-cooled! The power is delivered by a six cylinder 4,49l engine developing 100hp.
There were 1800 cars made of this model and only about 115 of these are still around today. The cars were in the same league as Cadillac, Packard and Pierce-Arrow. You can find lots of information about these rare automobiles on the Franklin Clubs website
This car was bought by the present owner in USA and brought to Sweden back in 2003. Overall this car is in very good condition and it had a full restoration back in 1984. Paint is showing a little bit of patina in some places but the car still looks amazing. All the chrome pieces on the car are in perfect condition.
Interior is also in very good condition. Engine had a complete rebuild and has not been used much since.
One of the great things with this car is that the rear end was rebuilt and a gear with higher ratio was used. This makes traveling on the highway less stressful for the engine and saves gasoline.
Franklin cars were notorious for a big play in the steering. However, this particular steering box has been rebuilt by a specialist in USA with parts very hard or impossible to find today.
