Crosley was a small independent car maker that produced compact
cars from 1939 till 1952 and was based out of Cincinnati Ohio and
was founded by the owner of the Cincinnati Reds. Offering a variety
of body styles including sedans, convertibles, pickups, wagons, and
vans, all of Crosley's cars were very simple with solid axles, body
on frame construction, 80in wheelbases, leaf springs, and engines
smaller than 1 liter. Crosley's first car was introduced in April
of 1939 and the little roadster was sold for just $325. The
outbreak of WW2 stopped car production and the company found itself
manufacturing gun turrets for B-24 bombers. Surprisingly, Crosley
hit the ground running after the end of the war and was the first
American production car offered with four wheel disc brakes as well
as the first production overhead cam engine.
GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this unique piece of American
automotive history for your consideration. This little blue 1950
Super Station Wagon is in remarkably nice condition for its age and
stature. The paint quality is quite nice overall and the body is
very nice. The 4 cylinder runs as it should and the manual
transmission shifts properly. The chrome remains in good condition.
The car rides on 12 inch factory wheels with hubcaps. The car
remains in 6 volt and has aftermarket turn signals.
These little cars are super unique, and many influential people
such as Dwight Eisenhower, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Nelson
Rockefeller were all noteable owner. It will be quite hard to find
such another example that is this nice. These little Crosley's
aren't well known but sure are A Fine Car.
