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?

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.

Car FRANKLIN WANTED: Help out a member to find a Franklin Olympic or late model Franklin that can be driven now and enjoyed. Here is a unique situation; trade a Franklin for the 1964 Valiant convertible which was featured in the September issue of Hemmings Classic Car. It is unusual as it was built in Canada and has the front clip of a Valiant but from the cowl back it is a Dodge Dart. It has a 225 slant 6 with a factory 4 speed. Go to the For Sale/Cars Wanted Tab or click here for more specifics.
