The Franklin Standard of Demonstration
50 to 500 Miles-or More
It is not necessary to accept either our statements or the word-of-rnouth
confirmation of a Franklin owner. Let the car .itself tell the story
the unvarnished story of performance now twenty years old.
We have laid out this demonstration plan to show anyone who wants
to know that motoring can be comfortable free from trouble and
1 economical. Call upon any one of our 500 dealers any time. It will pay
you to know this car.

The Differences Back of the Outstanding
Performance of Today's Franklin
Outlasts any other three shafts.
The only car with this big endu-
rance feature. Seven main bearings
(instead of the usual three) reduce
Direct Air .Cooling
More efficient weighs less has
177 fewer parts. Does away with
radiator troubles cuts routine
care allows chassis flexibility re-
Laminated Wood Frame
Moro costly to build but lighter
stronger and more shock-absorbing
than steel. Increases comfort
permits wheels to conform to road
without straining body.
Here again is flexibility impossible
with body rigidly bolted to frame
the entire length. Prevents
squeaks and strains.
See what this docs to rigidity
the enemy of comfort safety and
long life. No noisy shackle bolts.
No Torque Tubes
or Strut Rods
Another contribution to flexibility.
Allows springs to absorb jar of
starting stopping and road jolts.
Also eliminates unnecessary
weight and noise.
Give almost twice the usual spring
movement. Deaden road shocks.
More costly than semi-elliptic or
other kinds but important for
comfort. Absorb the forces that
Light Unsprung Weight
Less weight below springs than
any other car.- Reduces reaction
of road roughness again3t tires
body and passengers.
Scientific Light Weight
Quality materials of great strength
properly used to equalize stress.
' Lessens load distributes it evenly.
Lengthens tire life gives comfort
easy handling and economy.
Generous Use of Aluminum
In body engine base and oil pan
rear axle housing etc. Saves 440
lbs. in enclosed types 350 in open.
Costs 800 more than materials
it replaces. A big factor in Franklin
light weight and quality.
Tubular Front Axle
Made of drawn steel tubing. More
expensive to produce but isstrong-
er lighter and free from hidden
A cowl Bwitch does it. No push-
ing of pedals no meshing of gears.
A powerful safety factor.
Carburetor adjustment possible
with car In motion meeting vary-
ing conditions. Prevents gasoline
waste insures maximum power.
Strong starter improved electric
vaporizer closed circuit ignition
system hotter spark. Makes
starting instant easy and depend'
able regardless of temperature.
Combine advantages of cast iron
and of ordinary aluminum types.
Silent longer - wearing allow
higher engine compression quick
acceleration. Reduce carbon.
Elimination of Grease Cups
Wick oiling eliminates all but
three which are easily reached.
Lightens routine care guards
against damage due to neglect.
Pressure Oiling to Bearings
Makes oiling positive constant
and equal not a matter of chance.
Saves many repair bills.
.View Use of DropForgings
In load-carrying parts. Increases
endurance saves repair bills. The
first car to embody this advance
Safqr Braking System
Service and emergency brake areas
separated insuring cool brakes.
Service brake on transmission acts
through differential equally on
both wheels. Multiplies braking
force prevents skidding.
Automatic Spark Control
Relieves the driver of guessing.
Insures correct timingatall speeds.
Saves engine saves gasoline.
20 miles to the gallon of gasoline
12500 miles to the aet of tires
50 slower yearly depreciation
The most comfortable car to ride in
Thje easiest and safest car to handle
The most economical car to operate
The car that is freest from trouble
And can cover most miles in a day
FOR the many motorists who have hopefully
changed makes of cars and are still dissatisfied
'we have a brief message:
You merely changed makes instead of changing
The same make or type of axle engine or other
part gives about equal results in different cars. The
Franklin builds on individual and scientific lines.
'Engine virtually built twice; raxle built up and
machined for lightness and strength; carburetor of
special design and so on through the list
Rigidity produces about the same effect whatever
the name-plate on the car. The Franklin is flexible.
Water works in the same way on the front of any
car. The Franklin is air cooled no water boiling
freezing or leaking.
Heavy weight takes its toll in tires gasoline and
comfort. The Franklin is light weight and resilient
.--easily handled comfortable and economical.
The demonstration will let you see feel and hear
THE DEMI-SEDAN $2850
An exclusive model combining the chief advantages of both open and closed cars. Removable
non-rattle glass panels give thorough weather protection. Permanent top 4 doors for 5 passengers.
