1951 Crosley Super Sport Roadster

AMAZING RESTORATION OF A RARE AND SOUGHT AFTER MICRO CAR! THE NICEST CROSLEY WE HAVE EVER HAD THE HONOR OF REPRESENTING!! IF YOU DESIRE PERFECTION. THIS IS YOUR CAR!

Powell Crosley Junior was the owner of Crosley Broadcasting. Crosley Radios. Crosley Refrigerators. and the Cincinnati Reds; he also wanted to sell cars of his own design. With help from his younger brother Lewis. a trained engineer. the first Crosley automobile was created and priced at just $250. Nearly 5. 00 examples were built before America entered World War II and production ceased. After the war. production resumed and in 1949. the Hot Shot & Super Sport roadster were introduced and classified as America's first postwar sports car. Returning GIs wanted something small and fun like the cars they saw in Europe and these small vehicles carried a price tag of just $900. less than half the cost of Chevrolet's base model. They backed up their hefty ‘sports car' title by winning the Index of Performance and taking overall victory at the first Sebring 6-hour race in 1950. Other victories included the 1951 Swiss Grand Prix and second in the 1951 Tokyo Grand Prix. The engines built by Crosley were used to carry other racing specials. including those built by Bandini. Moretti and Siata. Crosley engines even made their way into marine applications and powered several boats during the 1950s!! Sadly. less than a few thousand were produced and even fewer remain today. Weighing only 1180 pounds and powered by a 44ci Inline 4 engine with a 3-speed manual transmission. the little Crosley was capable of 75mph in stock trim!

We are proud to present the finest 1951 Crosley Super Sport we have ever seen!! When your day-to-day life consists of viewing collector cars. you tend to be extremely picky. In our staff's opinion. this is the nicest Crosley in the world. or at least the best we have ever seen!! The car was completely and professionally restored in a nut and bolt rotisserie fashion. Every screw. every bolt. every component of the car was reconditioned to the highest level possible. and back to factory specifications! The car was painted in a Pale Mint Green with Black stayfast canvas convertible top with Red vinyl interior. The car is complete with Crosley AM radio. Convertible top. matching spare tire. hydraulic brakes. glove box and display card.

This Crosley is finished like a fine piece of jewelry! It would be at home in your living room on display or driven down a country road. The paint. interior. chrome. and so on are immaculate. The car needs nothing to be shown on a concourse level. and can be driven and enjoyed anywhere. We invite all interested parties to view the car in person and feel it will silence even the strongest of critics! Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have. International world wide transport of the Crosley Super Sport is available and we can arrange shipping to you if needed.
