1926 FRANKLIN MODEL 11-A 5-PASSENGER SEDAN







1926 Franklin Model 11-A 5-Passenger Sedan
Vin# E113693
The H. H. Franklin Manufacturing Company was a maker of automobiles in the United States between 1902 and 1934 in Syracuse, New York. All Franklin cars were air-cooled, which the company considered simpler and more reliable than water cooling, and the company considered light weight to be critical in making a well-performing car given the limited power of the engines then available. Franklin cars were technological leaders, first with six cylinders (by 1905) and automatic spark advance, in 1907. Demonstrating reliability, L.L. Whitman drove a Franklin from New York City to San Francisco in 1906 in 15 days 2 hours 15 minutes, a new record. Franklin were undisputed leaders in air-cooled cars at a time when virtually every other manufacturer had adopted water cooling as cheaper and easier to manufacture. This 5-Passenger Sedan has an older restoration that has held up fairly well but has been sitting for a few years. Own a great piece of automotive history without spending a fortune!
