Hmmm, me thinks that you mentioning VWs and Porsches means it was probably also a rear engine automobile... They didn't have a Corvair back that early, did they? Probably not.

H. H. Franklin Motor Car Company, Syracuse, NY. My best friend owned one. It was a really nice car.

Chopper, you're up!

Yea! I win?? I was going to ask what outlaw wanted a Franklin so that bullets wouldn't be able to be shot at the radiator to stop the car, but I can't remember who it was. So...I won't ask it!

I will ask this instead.

Ford got credit for the first factory built pickup in 1925. It was a light duty half ton with a steel cargo box. It was called a Model T Runabout. Who technically beat Ford by making a factory built pickup in 1924? A rarely seen truck (3/4 ton with a wooden box).
