FRANKLIN Type D is the greatest of five-passenger Automobiles.
Powerful, commodious nnd strong, but not bulky or heavy. The
unequalled Franklin combination of high power with lightweight and
easy riding qualities make Type D do more than any other automobile
nt the price except a Franklin. '
Type D with its 28 horse-power weighs a fourth less than the aver
age five-passenger water-cooled nutomoblc. You get more carrying abil
ity nnd climbing power nnd "go"' out of the same horsc-uowcr; you save
gasoline and oil and tires ordinarily used up in doing the same work. A
Fianklin air-cooling gets more out of the fuel.

?! iQJff :Fence eween Weight and Strength
DID you notice that the only axles broken in the Glidden Tour were, of the solid I-beam type? There
is no better example of the uselessness and disadvantage of useless weight. The ordinary J -beam
axle weighs twice as much as the Franklin tubular axlef yet the Franklin axle is a good deal stronger. It
is made of 3 1-2 per cent, nickel steel, with a tensile strength of 240,000 pounds to the square inch.
In the same way the Franklin drive-shaft is stronger than an ordinary drive-shaft of considerably
greater section and weight. The Franklin white ash frame, built up in transverse layers is stronger than
the ordinary steel frame, although lighter, ,
Nobody imagines that heavy water-cooling apparatus makes an automobile any stronger. This extra weight is simply one of the undesirable necessities thnt go with a wat:r-coolcd design. By getting rid of
this weight and the complication tint go:s with it, every Franklin model i3 stronger and safer, as well as more reliable than the average water-cooled automobile that 'weighs fully a third more, and costs in .propor
tion more to maintain. The biggest mistake in automobile-making is useless weight nnd bulk.
Signess and Bulk Are Not Style
You would pick out a Franklin automobile, anywhere for its stylish
appearance, its symmetrical lines and its perfection of detail, yet no
Fianklin has any unnecessary bulk or weight.
The Franklin Model I touring car is a powerful, capacious auto
mobile and looks it; Yet it weighs under 2,500 pounds. Other seven
passcngcr automobiles are far bulkier and heavier, and vastly more ex
pensive to own, but not one is mors stylish.
All Franklins have the lcfincd simplicity that is secured only through
Franklin air-cooling, nnd the luxurious riding-quality possible only with
the non-jarring Franklin construction. They have long whepl-bascs and
large wheels nnd tires. They arc easy to manage and strong and safe.
And of all automobiles, Franklins are the most enjoyable to use.
Have You Noticed It?
A great many manufacturers have lately switched to the "light
weight" argument. Some of them with nppaicntly nothing to back up
their statements. They know the "public" aic wise to the weight ques
tion and they are doing their utmoit to "get in line."
But just compare the weights of their so-called lightweight motor
rare with that of the 1003 TltANKLINS. The G, without lights or
equipment, weighs 1750 lbs. With lights, luggage carrier, horn and tool
equipment weight is 1770 lbs.
The D without equipment weighs 2075 lbs.; with lights, luggage
carrier, horn, etc., weight is 2105 lbs.
The II without equipment wheigs 2400 lbs.; with lights,, etc, 2525
