We are doing an overall mechanical tune-up and 'get running' routine on this beautiful classic that is nearly 100 years old. It's truly an honor to be able to work on these pioneering automotive classics.
We will have a look at the fuel system as well as all the running gear and brakes. These unique engines are all air-cooled, so there are no water pumps or other cooling system parts to contend with. Ironically, the founder of the Franklin company left in 1934 after the cars started having 'radiators' installed simply for appearance purposes.
