Re: Stretched brake cables

"dccrosley" <Crosleydc@...>
 

Lou,I think the use of common cable adjusters will get your brakes
working again.They are available at any good hardware store.I've also
seen them at places like AutoZone,Advance auto parts and places like
that.Cheap too!

Jim Bollman <Jim@...>
 

To come up with a price or even get advise on what it is worth you have to be more complete in your description. Look at the condition of the parts. Figure out if any of the hard to find parts are missing. Are any of the accessories included?

Some major things to look for that are unique to the FarmOroad that may be hard to find if they are missing. Windshield with brackets, 4:1 transfer case, rear end, drive shaft and steering gear, Accessories that would increase the value could include any of the farm attachments, front or rear PTO, dual wheels, hydraulics (engine pump and rear draw bar cylinder with control valve), front draw bar, top bows, and the bed (yes the bed was an optional accessory).

I probably left out out some things but it is a start.

Re: headliners

Jim Bollman <Jim@...>
 

Sounds like a fair price. Are you happy with the quality and how it matches the original? I have no idea what the "two V shaped boxes with sides" are used for. How large are these V shaped boxes?

Jim...


Brake cables!

"mrcooby" <x779@...>
 

Yesterday I learned my '48 CC Station Wagon's brake cables are stretched beyond further usefulness.

Both Dave Edwards Crosley Parts and Service Motors are currently out-of-stock on these cables. (It looks like my existing housings are reuseable, though.)

So: any cables for sale out there, or sources for made-up cables?
And how long exactly should new cables be?

Thanks!

Enjoy the weekend.

Lou

Hi Jim, I talked to Ron at autoupholsterykits.com today and he said
the price on the headliner kit was $125 Another item That came with
the headliner was two V shaped boxes with sides. Possibly, they fit
in doors with slider windows. Mine are roll up.


Garage construction

"Crosley_AZ" <crosley_az@...>
 

Some of you folks that visit the chat room(when it works) have asked
me about the progress of my new garage I am having built. The roof
is finished and the sides are ready for the application of stucco.

Follow the link below. In the album titled "construction" is the
lastest pictures. The album "Tonys pictures" there are several
pictures as the building goes up.

And the album "Harley is 3" is a couple of pics of my youngest grand
daughter's birthday party

Re: 42 crosley truck prices

Jim Bollman <Jim@...>
 

We could get a better idea of what you have if you could post some pictures on our photo page. There were several models of trucks available in 42, all rare. Posting the serial number would help verify the year.

Jim...

We have recently acquired a very good condition 42 crosley truck and we were wondering what they sale for. Anybody who knows this please e-mail me back at misterdamascus.com. thanx

Re: F-O-R apart: $1500.00 to $2500.00 depending on completeness. What is
complete? Does it have: the hydraulic pump, the hydraulic oil tank, front
or rear PTO shafts, cast dual wheels, second tranny, PTO transfer case,
front or rear hydraulic bumpers, rear dump bed or straight bed, seats or
seat frames, rear taillight assembly? These are all parts unique to the
Farm-O-Road without them it is far from complete. All of these parts are
very hard to find and expensive when located. Hope this helps, Kap

Hi Jim I just caught your question tonight about the cost of my
headliner,(subject 107) I looked in my pile of reciepts at home but
it's not there. Hopefully it is at work and I will have it for you
tomorrow night. Hope your wife has a speedy recovery. Peter

Re: '47 roundside pu

"Jim_Bollman" <Jim@...>
 

Mark,

I can't be much help on what to do with it, I like all Crosley stock,
street rod and in between. I can tell you a few facts to help you
make up your mind. Lots more than 400 made. I list over 3100 trucks
in 46 and 47. Some of that number is early slab side and probably a
few Sedan Delivers but neither of those started production till
November. I can not get you an exact number but 2000+ would be a
closer guess.

If you want to go stock or near stock most any of the standard models
can act as a donor vehicle. If you pick a late model you get
hydraulic brakes. You have to add some supports for the bed on the
frame if it is a sedan or wagon frame. A poor condition parts car
would be fairly cheap to get.

If you really have the need for speed, but can't bring yourself to
start cutting or the ability (highly modified cars take some talent
and money) you might go for hopped up near stock. Stock engines can
be built up to nearly double stock HP without getting to radical.
Homelite and Bearcat boat engines that were based on the Crosley
design can be converted to car use and look stock to many people and
get you 55hp without any extra hopping. I drove a 49 wagon with a
Homelite, it is amazing what double the HP does. The soup up approach
requires only bolt on mods and if you later want to convert to stock
it is pretty easy. Some even change to a 4 speed and a narrowed
Austin or other rear end. The next step up is put a larger 4cyl of
another make. How much you have to modify depends on the engine you pick.

Since you have just the body you could just drop it on a different
chassis. The earlier Jeep CJs have around a 81" wheel base pretty
close match but you will either have to cut a lot on the fenders or
jack the body up. All kinds of engine swap articles on the CJ.

To go more radical is beyond my abilities but several members in the
club can probably advise.

Jim...

Well I'll add my 2 cents also. When I arrived at Weauson at the
National meet in 1984 with my 48 Crosley Panel (TINKER TOY) powered
by a 2000cc pinto engine c-4 trans and pinto rear I was looked upon
by most as an out cast. At the same time many people also looked!
When I returned in 1991 I was met with more respect than before. This
truck has been finished for 18 years, enjoyed by many people and
driven for thousands and thousands of miles. Now comes the
question???? Build it this way or original? I see it build it your
way. I enjoy driving the truck 55-60 mph all day. Some people enjoy
having a 100 point original show car and only driving in and out of a
trailer. Bottom line we all buld them to enjoy and save! So Enjoy!
Thanks! Steve
