Franklin Automobile Company was another early innovator in the automotive industry. The company built sedans, touring cars, limousines, coupes, speedsters, taxis, and light trucks. The most interesting and innovative thing about Franklin vehicles was that they were air-cooled (via Daily Kos).
Franklin’s cars were different looking than anything else on the road. That was because the styling was molded after Renault vehicles as is evident by the hood design. The cars were designed by J. Frank DeCausse and he innovated the original boat-tail styling.
