From its inception in 1902, the Franklin was one of the most successful air-cooled automobiles ever built in America. The company had a reputation for high quality and innovation. In an age where most engine blocks, pistons, and cylinder heads were made of cast iron, Franklin used high-grade, light weight aluminum. In fact, at one time Franklin was the largest consumer of aluminum. By 1920, other advanced features such as full-pressure lubrication, automatic spark control, and electric choke were long-familiar Franklin fare. By 1923, the company conformed to the conventional look by placing a false radiator at the front of their vehicles.
The Franklin Airman was named after the famous Charles Lindbergh. Amelia Earhart and Lindberg, both famous aeronautical individuals, could often be found in front of Franklin advertisements. The company compared their vehicles to airplanes due to the use of air-cooled engines and the use of these celebrities helped reinforce their beliefs with the public.
