In 1907 "Franklin" introduced automatic control ignition timing , and since 1912, all of its models were equipped with pressure lubrication . Cars have acquired a distinctive rounded hood, nicknamed "the crocodile snout " because of the unusual radiator.

With only 1928 cars "Franklin" were equipped with a steel frame instead of wood , but the demand for these cars has steadily declined . To keep sales plunge , "Franklin" introduced in the program and more new models, but in 1931, sales amounted to only 2,850 copies, that is, only a quarter sold in 1926. In 1932, Franklin presented a model of "V12", reached a speed of 153 km / h, but its price was so high that it is not allowed to rely on good demand .
