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.

FOR SALE: 1911 Franklin Model M Touring Car

A very rare car found in 1992 by Harold Coker (Coker Tire Co.) and completely restored by him. The body, engine, all parts are original to the car. Some engine parts Coker scrounged from other engines in order to complete the restoration. Shaft drive; sliding gear transmission (3 forward, 1 reverse); self-finding gear shift; Bosch magneto ignition system; four cylinders, 4x4 inches; 25 HP; 108" wheelbase; 2300 lbs; maximum speed 45 mph; air-cooled (naturally!); wooden frame; aluminum body.

The car was apparently shown in 1974 as it has an AACA Senior National First Place dash plaque. What happened between 1974 and 1992 is anyone's guess. Coker found the car in parts at Chickasha in 1992.

Materials going with the car:

  • Photocopy of 52 page book "Hints and Suggestions on Adjusting and Repairing Franklin Motor Cars"
  • Notes from Odyssey Restorations Inc. regarding their work on the car in 2018.
  • 52 issues of The Franklin Service Station.
  • Materials collected by Coker and his related correspondence.
  • Coker's photocopy of "Franklin 1911 Motor Car Maintenance.
  • Photos Coker took while loading the car in March, 1992 at the Chickasha, OK Pre-War Swap Meet.
  • Also some photos of the restoration.

  • We've driven the car on tours. A real attention getter! Additional photos available upon request. Asking $85,000; contact Steven Williams, 636-575-1469, or email steven1912@charter.net

    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
