1933 Franklin Olympic 4 Door

This is not a normal car for us to buy, but every time I see an early 30's car I  want to have one. My first classic was a 1935 Packard Super 8.  This Franklin is in great shape, not show, but it runs well, looks good and the wipers even work. I don't know much about Franklins but I will learn more about this car. The Olympic has a 6 cylinder air cooled 274 cu.in. engine and it's massive in size. Franklin bought Reo Flying Clouds minus the engine and front end and added Airman engines, added Franklin hoods and grill shells. The idea was to have a less expensive automobile to sell. 1934 was the last year for Franklin. I'm not sure about the paint but I'm sure the interior is original and it's very possible that the paint is also. It's like it was in a time capsule.  Most everything works, tho' the gas gauge and speedo don't. Both wipers work.   One of the things I like on the 30's cars is dual side mounts and this Franklin has them. Even has a trunk on the back. Window shades too. Of course it has running boards, you can just see it in Chicago back in the days of Al Capone…machine guns blazing.   Joe at Old School Garage Did the service and safety check. It runs and drives good. It will pop out of 2nd gear. Joe went thought the wiring and fuel system. Andrew picked it up from Joe Monday and brought it up to the auction. It's not running right not sure what it is? When I first got the Franklin it rain good so I know it will run well again.
