1925 Franklin Model 10C news, pictures, and information
Chassis Num: 15006911
This Franklin is quite original, receiving only a repaint and replacement tires over the years. It was stored in a Long Beach, California garage for more than 50 years. This Franklin sedan is somewhat of a milestone automobile for Franklin. Following extensive protests from its dealer organization in 1923-24 the Franklin Company redesigned its cars to more resemble a conventional automobile of the day, abandoning the original, distinctive look as seen on this Franklin.
Ironically, the redesign cost Franklin its chief engineer, who resigned in protest over the move - but it was the right move for Franklin, which enjoyed sales success for a few more years.
