1952 Crosley Farm-o-Road
The tiny Crosley Farm-O-Road was an ATV-sized buggy made between 1950-’52 and designed for a variety of on- and off-road uses. The Farm-O-Road was a combination of a light tractor, a small pickup and a passenger vehicle and was aimed at the farmer who could not afford a new car and tractor at the same time! The cars are street legal and were used as such.
The Dealer announcement upon introduction in 1950 of the Farm-o-Road read as follows: “Here at last is the machine people have been longing for and wishing for as a tractor, a powerful workhorse for farming, plowing, cultivation, mowing, and so forth — a fast economical vehicle for road trips — a rugged truck for hauling and towing — a mobile power plant for sawing wood, spraying, etc., all combined in one lightweight, low-cost machine. That is the Crosley Farm-O-Road.”
The 1952 Farm-o-Road presented at auction is a most unique, collectible and extremely hard to find Crosley. The Duallys are OEM and the owner has enjoyed using this mini-Jeep on the ranch and at events. This Farm-o-Road will be an instant hit with grandchildren, children, and especially spouses on date night!
