Vehicle Description

This 1922 Franklin 9-B 5 Passenger Touring received a full restoration some years ago by noted Northwest collector, Clayton Stone. It presents beautifully today. Finished in maroon and black.

Nicely optioned with wire wheels, wind wings, spotlight, Sparton horn, Waltham dash clock, rear mounted spare tire, running board step plates and exhaust whistle. Please see photos.

Rebuilt inline 6 cylinder OHV air cooled engine. 199 cubic inches. Rated at 25 HP. 4.35:1 rear-end. 3-speed selective sliding-gear transmission. Two-wheel brakes. This car has been driven on tours and to shows where it always garners lots of attention. Please see video of engine running.

From 1902 to 1934 the H.H. Franklin Company in Syracuse, New York built what were considered the finest air cooled automobiles of the era (and decades before VW and Porsche!) They were lightweight, pioneering the use of aluminum and tubular steel construction, with overhead valve engines and detachable cylinders that were finned for heat dissapation. They did not require a radiator or water jacket, thus eliminating the unpredictable cooling of traditional internal combustion engines of the day. In hot or cold weather, Franklins kept going, prompting famous coast-to-coast endurance driver, "Cannonball" Baker to comment after driving one across the continent and up Pike's Peak: "That old 'waffle iron' was the greatest car I ever drove. ...That snub-nosed baby buggy would run forever."

If you are looking for a beautifully restored example of a rare and unusual automobile that's ready to show or go, this is it.
