Its yellow paint is in overall excellent condition. while its windows. including the sliding side glass. are in very good order. clear and intact. All of its lights are present. intact and haze-free. The small hauler's bumpers are in very good shape. This Crosley rolls on 145R12 tires at all four corners. with shiny Crosley moon hubcaps covering red steel wheels. All of the truck's body panels are straight. in fine condition and the engine bay and battery are tidy. The cargo area had a bed mat and the sidewalls are topped with wood.
Inside. the diamond-cloth bucket seats are in very good shape. as is the matching carpet and complementing tan headliner. The yellow metal instrument panel with its red-and-silver gauge cluster. red accents and trim is sharp. Crosley offered full instrumentation. too. The original. three-spoke steering wheel is in very good shape. as are the door panels. which feature tan. diamond-cloth. as does the area behind the bucket seats. The mirror glass and shift lever are fine. Please note that the windshield wipers and fuel gauge are inoperable. To round out the interior. there is a pair of Tweety Bird floor mats. This is a radio delete model.
Under the hood is a cast-iron block assembly (CIBA) engine. a 724cc overhead-cam four with a 2. 5-inch bore and 2. 25-inch stroke that produced 26. 5 horsepower at 5. 00 rpm with five main bearings. mated to a three-speed manual transmission.
Intermittently from 1939 to 1952. the Crosley Corporation and later. Crosley Motors Incorporated. manufactured the Crosley. Industrialist Powel Crosley. Jr. . of Cincinnati. Ohio. owner of Crosley Broadcasting Corporation and the Cincinnati Reds baseball team. had ambitious plans to build a subcompact car and with able assistance from his younger. graduate engineer brother. Lewis Crosley. developed assembly plants at Richmond and Marion. Indiana. In May 1939. the first car was shown at the Indianapolis Speedway. a two-door convertible that weighed less than 1. 00 pounds and sold for $250. It did not achieve sales success but in 1941 more body styles were introduced.
The chassis had an 80-inch wheelbase using half-elliptic springs with a beam axle in front and quarter-elliptic springs in the rear. Power came from a two-cylinder Waukesha air-cooled engine that had the fan as an integral part of the flywheel. The engine connected with a three-speed transmission then directly to a torque tube to the rear axle. thus eliminating the need for joints. However. this arrangement was judged unreliable. and conventional universal joints were fitted beginning in 1941.
In 1941. the body styles available were expanded to include two- and four-passenger convertibles. a convertible sedan. a station wagon. a panel truck. a pickup and two models called "Parkway Delivery" (a mini-panel with no roof over the front seat) and "Covered Wagon" (a convertible pickup truck with a removable back seat). Crosley's first metal-topped sedan (the Liberty Sedan) was introduced for 1942.
During World War II. the Crosley became attractive because of gasoline rationing and the good mileage it could achieve: 50 miles per US gallon. Crosley was the last company to cease production of civilian vehicles in 1942. partly to aid Crosley sales to facilitate fuel conservation and partly because the War Production Board needed time to determine a use for Crosley's small factories.
Civilian car production resumed at the Marion facility in 1946 with the new. larger and aerodynamic CC model. designed by the firm of Sundberg & Ferar of Royal Oak. Michigan. (The Richmond facility had been sold during the war years. )
Crosley introduced several "firsts" in the American automobile industry. including the first use of the term 'Sport Utility' in 1948 (albeit on an open model based on the wagon. not a wagon on a truck chassis); first mass-market single overhead camshaft (SOHC) engine in 1946; first slab-sided postwar car. also in 1946; first all steel-bodied wagon in 1947; and many others.
