FRANKLIN SERIES 14/15

Sport phaeton, 7-passenger phaeton, fixed-head coupé, convertible coupé, sedan, 7-passenger sedan, limousine.

The most famous air-cooled marque of pre-VW days, now with side-draught cooling and detachable heads. The wooden chassis of pre '29 days has gone, but the full-elliptic springing remains. Synchromesh (there's a four-speeed option with faitly close ratios) and hydraulic brakes. Some lovely coachwork available, especially the open Pirates and Pursuits. Rare in Britain.
