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.

1927 Tandem Sport. Only a few "Tandem Sports“ were built in 1927 to celebrate 25 years of the Franklin motorcars. Most notably the roof was chopped by the factory to create what was advertised as the lowest production car in America at that time. It was the most costly Franklin at the time.

The highly attractive original yellow paint and the rarity of this automobile has resulted in it winning prizes at about every car show to which it went in both the US and in Europe.

In 2001 a Dutch collector purchased the car in the USA and imported it to Amsterdam. He held on to the car until his passing in 2017. The car is now located near Frankfurt.

The car features a 1930’s radio with a tube amplifier under the dash and antenna under the floor boards. Unfortunately, this is currently not working.

The first owner, Fontaine Fox, was at the time a well known cartoonist.

I have spend around €30,000 (Euros) to restore the rear brakes, drive shaft, differential, oil pump, exhaust, valve setting, white wall tires, service brake lining, and wool carpets. The engine was overhauled with new pistons while still in the US.

The whole car is in excellent condition.

Asking price $50,000.

1930 Frankin Victoria Brougham is a close coupled sedan with side mounted spare tires and a rear trunk. It is listed in the 2020 Franklin Register as PR (partly restored). Most of the restoration work done to the car was to keep it in running condition. The rear seat is in original condition. The front seats are covered. Neil purchased the car in 1970 and we drove it many thousands of miles before the highways got too crowded and dangerous. It was then taken to the Franklin Trek in a car trailer and enjoyed on the back roads of New York for many road runs.

Asking price $27K. Marty Sugermeyer (757)761-1244. Send me a text and I can send you pictures.

1923 Franklin Touring. $5,000
Franklin 4-door touring car. I don't know much about Franklin cars, so the description is very limited. Vehicle is not in running condition. The wood has really dried out in the dry climate of New Mexico, however the rest of the vehicle is doing well for a 100 year old car.

I have many pictures showing the different components on the car for those who are interested. Due to telemarketers and scammers, please leave a voice mail with name and phone number and I will call you back, or you can send a letter requesting more information or photos of specific areas of the car that you would like to view.

1930 Franklin Club Sedan

I have owned this car since 2007, and during my ownership it has never been on a trailer. I have driven it from Toronto, to and from the Franklin Trek in Cazenovia, almost every year since 2007 up to and including 2022. The car has been on many other long trips, such as several times to Watkins Glen NY and to the Air Cooled Gathering at the Gilmore Car Museum in Michigan. Thanks to a 4.25 final drive ratio plus larger than standard tires, [7.00/7.50 by 19 ] 60 miles per hour is achieved at 2373 RPM. I regularly did expressway driving at a steady 60 MPH for long distances following a major engine rebuild about ten years ago. The engine rebuild included reboring the cylinders to 30 thousands oversize and installing Egge pistons as well as machining the crankshaft 10 thousands undersize, both main and rod bearing journals. Toyota Land Cruiser connecting rod inserts were fitted by Tom Rasmussen. Babbitting and aline boring new main bearings was arranged here in Canada. New valves and valve guides were also installed. Other mechanical updates during my ownership include sleeving and rebuilding the hydraulic brake master cylinder, new Hasslen-supplied wheel cylinders in the front brakes, and replacing all hydraulic brake tubing. I also had the cooling fan hub rebuilt by Paul Fitzpatrick and installed a new clutch plate. All of the chrome is in excellent condition. Body paint, although rust free, is several years old and has oxidized badly. The paint needs to be redone with a more durable finish that keeps its shine. I created a new trunk which is correct for this car according to the Franklin engineering drawings. Headlights and taillights have been converted to LED.The Club Sedan is a very attractive body style, particularly as this car is equipped, with six wire wheels and side-mounted spare tires. A car cover comes with the car. as well as a supply of the upholstery material for the interior. I am asking a modest price of 28,000. US dollars, considering the improvements I made to the car. The car is located near my residence in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
