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:
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 firstname.lastname@example.org

For Sale: 1929 Franklin 130 4-door Sedan
1929 Franklin model 130 4 door sedan.

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
