Restorable Car Wanted

Do you have a Franklin that is a restoration project that has taken a hiatus? Or a Franklin that is not quite what would be considered road worthy, but time has conspired against your being able to work on it? Would you like to help out the Franklin Club by donating it, or having the Franklin Club coordinate its sale?

Welcome to The H. H. Franklin Club, Inc.

The H. H. Franklin Club, Inc. is a non-profit membership organization devoted to the preservation and exploration of the H. H. Franklin Manufacturing Company history and its effects on the history of the automobile.

The H.H. Franklin Manufacturing Company of Syracuse, NY built America's most successful air-cooled automobile, with its first innovative air-cooled motorcar in 1902 and continued production until 1934. Of the 150,000 Franklins built between 1902 and 1934, it's estimated that about 3,700 have survived.
