Sellers: Be Aware of Scams

Several members lising cars for sale have encountered disreputable buyers. We hope your selling experience is positive, but be careful. The National Consumers League Website has the following cautions:

>NEVER wire money or use a bank-to-bank transfer in a transaction.

>Avoid payment via international funds transfer, pre-loaded card or electronic currency.

>DO NOT sell a car to someone who is unable or unwilling to meet you face to face.

>WAIT until a check (personal, cashier’s, certified, or otherwise) has cleared the bank to transfer title or the car itself. Funds being made available by a bank DOES NOT mean the check is not counterfeit. Clearing a check can take days or weeks depending on the financial institutions involved. Check with your bank about their particular processes for clearing checks.

>NEVER trust a buyer who says that the transaction is GUARANTEED by eBay, Craigslist, PayPal, or other online marketplace. These sites explicitly DO NOT guarantee that people using their services are legitimate.

>BEWARE of buyers who want to conclude a transaction as quickly as possible.

>CALL the buyer to establish phone contact. If the buyer seems to neglect details agreed to via e-mail or is unable to answer questions about their location, it is likely to be a scam.

>ALWAYS trust your gut. If a deal feels “fishy” or sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Other Scams include:

>A buyer will tell you that someone else owes him or her money that is more than the cost of your car. He or she will ask for the car and promise payment from the other individual.

>Buyer promises additional funds to pay for the cost to ship.

> Buyer sends payment that is over the asking price.

>Buyer makes a promise to make monthly payments

>The buyer will use an unknown escrow service to complete the transaction.

This car is a full Classic and, as such, is recognized by the CCCA (Classic Car Club of America)

We have owned it since 1972

  • 6 – As New Lucas 600x20 Tires and Tubes with 4 Artillery (spoked) Oak Wheels.
  • As New-Complete Mohair upholstery and Vinyl Top.
  • Franklin Engine #E129121
  • Work performed by Cecil Fuller, who specialized in Auburn and Franklin upholstery work.
  • Engine completely rebuilt over 20 years ago with less than 3,000 miles running since.
  • Paint is very presentable – but not perfect.
  • This is a good solid car that is 98% complete.
  • Rust is not an issue as car is located in our dry RENO, NEVADA climate.


  • Car has been in storage in a clean facility for 9 years and is not currently running, but should be a relatively easy fix – mainly flushing of gas lines, gas tank and carburetor.
  • Hydraulic brakes will need a workover, mainly the master and wheel cylinders. Shoes seem to be in good condition.
  • Car will have to be trailered.

Car comes with many extra parts which are mainly trim pieces with some mechanical items. Two (2) headlights and Two (2) unrestored trunks are included.

Reason for selling our Franklin:
Advanced age – 80 plus years, Ill health prevents me from completing restoration.

We have had an appraisal done and it came in at $15,000.00. But we are aware of the work that needs to be done, so we will be asking $11,500.00.

Please feel free to call us, Tom or Priscilla Bauer for any questions you may have at (775) 851-3876 or (775) 720-3876

1929 Franklin model 130 4 door sedan.

Body: Car was repainted once in 1969 with laquer paint. Could use new paint on the fenders otherwise not bad. There is some cracking in spots, but it is not a rust bucket.

Trans: Has common 1st gear growl other than that transmission is fine.

Chrome: All the chrome was done in 1969. There is some minor flaking on top of the grille shell by the cap, other than that it is very nice.

Wheels and tires: Wood wheels are in good condition with 650x19 tires that were new in 1969. Plenty of tread left but you be the judge.

Brakes: Four new wheel cylinders, and master is in good shape. All lines have been cleaned and system has new fluid. The brakes work well.

Interior: New in 1969 and still in very good shape. Speedometer does not work. Other guages work. All the lights work, including interior. Turn signals have been added. Clock has been rebuilt.

For Sale: 1929 Franklin Model 130, 4 door sedan

Purchased and put into storage in 1972. 47,967 on odometer. Transported to Florida in 2016 to begin restoration. Performed basic survey of vehicle condition and began re-build of engine, then unable to continue due to health. Vehicle is solid and complete.

Discovered in 1980's that the storage garage was leaking water on front of vehicle, and it was transported to another storage location. Water caused damage to engine hood and fan housing, but both are repairable. Engine appears to be in good condition, but valve lifters need freed from valve lifter tubes. Carburetor (old pot metal) probably should be replaced. $5,500.00

For Sale: 1927 Franklin Series 11-B

I have owned this car since August 1976, it was advertised on the bulletin board at the Trek that year. Despite its deplorable condition I bought it. By standards of the time it wasn't even a good parts car. I had it running by October and pecked away at other defects until it is in its present state of a good running licensed and New York state inspected auto.

The car is now considered a survivor class car:

Remanufactured engine 2004, total disassembly, mains hand scraped to proper fit, cylinders overbored and sleeved finish bored to standard pistons, machined to accept modern rings, new valve guides, all new valves, connecting rods redone by the Babbitt Pot. Smith Weeks full pressure Oil pump with spin on oil filter. New Zenith carburetor. New clutch, brake band, new tires, tubes, and flaps

The car will run 45 to 50 mph all day on the flat is a good hill climber and is reliable. Mostly original with lot of pitina.

It a hard decision to have decided to part with it. I want the new caretaker to keep old yeller on the road so people can see and revel at this historic mechanical marvel tooling along with the total Franklin sound. $11500. Reasonable offers will be entertained. Inspection by appointment.
