For Sale: 1933 Franklin Olympic 4 Door in Seattle, Washington

$26,500

Vehicle Description


This is not a normal car for us to buy, but every time I see an early 30�s car I want to have one. My first classic was a 1935 Packard Super 8. This Franklin is in great shape, not show, but it runs well, looks good and the wipers even work. I don�t know much about Franklins but I will learn more about this car. The Olympic has a 6 cylinder air cooled 274 cu.in. engine and it�s massive in size. Franklin bought Reo Flying Clouds minus the engine and front end and added Airman engines, added Franklin hoods and grill shells. The idea was to have a less expensive automobile to sell. 1934 was the last year for Franklin. I�m not sure about the paint but I�m sure the interior is original and it�s very possible that the paint is also. It�s like it was in a time capsule. Most everything works, tho� the gas gauge and speedo don�t. Both wipers work. One of the things I like on the 30�s cars is dual side mounts and this Franklin has them. Even has a trunk on the back. Window shades too. Of course it has running boards, you can just see it in Chicago back in the days of Al Capone�machine guns blazing. 1933 Franklin Olympic 4 Door Sedan Cond. # 3+.
