No radia.tors, no piping, no plumbing~"nothing to freeze in Winter or overheat in Summer. For instance, on September 24, IQI4, 116 Fr~nklin cars ran 100 miles on low , gear without stppping the engine. Pranklin ,Dwners do n lOt have to fuss with ' anti=f.reezing mixtures and th,~ so==oalled remeC:ies for , , , overheating. The Pranklin direct=~ir.cooling system does away with 177 parts""==justI77Iess chances of trouble. BIG MILEAGE PER GALLON SHOWS The result of the May 1St, 1915, Franklin National Test, in which" 137 cars averaged 32.1 miles on a gallon of gaspline, proves the efficiency of the entire Franklin car. It shows how the car puts the most power into "going." How the air-cooled, valve-in-the-head motor gets the most power from the ~asoline. How the smooth-running mechanism from motor to wheels cuts down friction drag. Ho:w t,he tires transmit maximum power to the road. How scientific light weight saves in power required to drive the car. How design, material and construction throughout are highest quality. How only a FINE car can do it.
