1927 Franklin Series 11B Sedan
Chassis no. E116733
The history of these well built 1920s Franklins is well covered elsewhere in this catalog, this gives a second opportunity to appreciate their quality albeit in a very different coachwork style and different form.

This is a completely original car, with a wonderful patina accrued over more than eighty years, but in remarkable ‘time-warp’ order owing to sympathetic long term storage. Today, the upholstery, carpets and matting are all aged but not excessively worn and the bodywork is reported to be extremely solid for its years, with good shut lines and solid closing.

In running order, the seller has stated that the Franklin is driving well and its engine runs extremely smoothly. To add to its overall presentation, it retains a number of period details including some tools, lion radiator mascot, two owners manuals and even an original color choices sales catalog.
