Convertible Coupé

MADE POSSIBLE BY AIR-COOLING
NO WATER TO FREEZE, BOIL OR LEAK – NOTHING TO FILL, DRAIN, MIX, TIGHTEN, LUBRICATE, REPLACE OR REPAIR

 
THE ONLY CAR that can go on and on, hour after hour at top speed, without the slightest danger of loss of power or injury to the engine – made possible by air-cooling.
THE ONLY CAR that could go through the furnace heat of Death Valley for 104 Miles in low gear without an engine stop and without overheating or any attentions whatever – made possible by air-cooling
THE ONLY CAR with an engine that cannot freeze up in winter and cause cracked cylinders, burst radiator and leaky water pump – made possible by air-cooling.
THE ONLY CAR with an airplane engine – the same type of engine that flies 90% of today's airplanes. Franklin's airplane performance is a sensation to all who experience it. Plenty of power – plenty of speed – plenty of pickup. Away with the wind and never a let-up of thrills and motoring pleasure until your destination is reached – often hours before the time planned. Made possible by air-cooling.
THE ONLY CAR with flexibly designed chassis, involving the use of full-elliptic springs and light unsprung weight. The driver can relax – no road fighting or "pounding" through the steering wheel. It's a comfort to drive a Franklin – and safe. The car is perfectly balanced – with the rear seat riding just as comfortably as the front. Franklin gives you that extra margin of comfort you need for modern traveling. Made possible by air-cooling.
Franklin is the car of tomorrow. And Franklin is your opportunity TODAY to experience the performance of the future motor car. The new Transcontinent Franklin is the lowest priced of all fine cars. Try a FRANKLIN RIDE. Franklin Automobile Company, Syracuse, N. Y.
