1909 Model D Touring Car, $2,800 without top.
Bigness and Bulk are Not Stylo
You would pick out a Franklin automobile anywhere. f0r Its stylish appearance its symmetrical lines and
its perfection of detail, yet no Franklin has an nnneceasary bulk of weight.
The Franklin Model H Touring Car is a powerful, capacious automobile and looks it. Yet it weighs un
der 2,600 pounds. Other seven-passinger automobiles are far bulkier and heavier, and vastly more expensive
to own, but not one Is more stylish.
All Franklins have the refined simplic ity that Is secured only through Franklin air-cooling, and the lux
urious riding-quality possible only with the non-janing Franklin construction. They have long wheel-baaes
and large wheels and tires. They are easy to manage and strong and safe. And of all automobiles Franklins
are the most enjojable to use.
Franklin closed carriages are specially noticeable for their beauty and style; and the line this year is
exceptionally complete. '
Model Q is built with a brougham body, making it very sevrlceable for doctors or others desiring a two
passenger, closed vehicle. i
Models O and D are furnished with iandaulet bodls.
Model II is built as a Limousine. This has the exceptional flexibility produced by the six-cylinder Frank
lin engine, and is the limit of perfection in closed carriages.
Besides these ls the Type K 2, town car, seating six. It Is built upon our motorcab chasels and Is extra
strong and durable. Come and get a demonstratlon.es.
