FRANKLIN SERIES 17

Club brougham, sedan, limousine.

Last of the air-cooled line, though semi-elliptics now replace the traditional full-elliptics and Le Baron's aggressive vee grille and slanting 'screen aren't to everyone's liking. Attractions are 150bhp and a two-speed back end, but one can't talk of 'scientific light weight' on something turning the scales at 5600lbs. Listed here, but possibly never imported.
