If these V shaped boxes are about the size of a shoe box lid then they are
the original defroster outlets for the early Crosley. These connected
directly to the underside of the dash openings. The other end then connected
to the hoses from the heater. Later models used a metal outlet.

Jim...
you have heard that when something sounds to good to
be true, it probably isn't. such is the case on the
headliner kit. I rechecked my notes and saw that I was
in error the actual cost was $225 not $125. Sorry.
The quality by what I know is very good.I have a
problem in that the front half of the headliner had
the side panels sewn on in reverse but, they will
correct that for me at their expense. They are good
people to deal with.

Thanks Larry. i will take a look at the coil although it is also new.
But you raise another question. The terminals on the new coil are not
marked. I put it in with the same orientation as the old one when I
replaced it. Thanks Skip

Check the coil. Had same type problem, someone had reversed leads on
coil. Changed coil, & fixed. Though it was fuel too. Think internal
heat caused breakdown.

Lou,
If you mean the socket that the bulb fits in it is
" Echlin # LS 6114 " . If it is the part that the lens fits in
you might try the garage section on the home page .I remember

Re: Did Crosley sell trailers?

Jim Bollman <Jim@...>
 

I never saw an answer to this question so I guess I'll take a stab at it. There is currently a Crosley Trailer company.

Crosley Trailers, Inc.
US Hwy. 301 S
Starke, FL. 32091
(800) 940-8331
(904) 964-3842

I don't know if there is a family connection but no connection to the original company.

I think the car company may have made small trailers during the war along with a lot of other things but I'm not sure why I'm remembering that.
http://www.ggw.org/~cac/War_Years.html

Jim...

I have come across a really cute little trailer. It looks like it
would be Crosley size (or other small car). Did Crosley ever make or
sell trailers? Thanks, Hal

Re: Convertible tops!

carlo airdo <airdo@...>
 

HI, my 1952 convertible top has snaps only in the rear, the sides fit
into the rain rail. I believe this is correct as my top was made from
the worn out old top. I could be wrong but, thats how mine fits. Thanks,
Carlo.

the body when the top is off, and runs across the rear right up to
where
the oak side railings begin. It's a nice finishing touch.
Thought I'd pass that along to whomever wants to make one.

Looks like Yahoo fixed whatever was broke on our message board for the
