Re: CC Crosley Hood Latch

ROBERT L GREGG <capngrog@...>
 

An interior hood latch was a feature of many automobiles of the era, and this made the engine bay relatively secure.  I have a 1947 and 1948 Chevrolet, both of which have interior hood latches.  These latches provided better security for the engine bay, making it necessary to break into the car to release the hood latch and access the engine bay.  Some of the early cars (both my 1938 Chev and 1948 Chev) had "armored" wires from the ignition switch to the ignition coil, in an attempt to thwart those ruffians who would hot wire a car by accessing the engine bay.  Most modern automobiles have a secure engine bay like the Crosley and many others.

I find it amazing how someone could find something positive to say about an inside hood release...... on a Crosley.
I have owned three Crosleys,
Right off hand I can't think of anything positive about anything. And they are ugly!
They are a piece of crap!
Well maybe one thing, the OHV engine. The thing is absolutely bullet proof!
I love these little cars.
Go to about any car show and yours is the only Crosley.
And they certainly draw a crowd and plenty of smiles.

Crosley for sale $7500

rick roman
 

I've decided to sell my Crosley and thought I would try here first, it's a 1952 super wagon with the one piece rear door, the body is really solid, it has a new wiring harness new voltage regulator and the generator was rebuilt, also has a new re-cored radiator and new master cylinder, the interior is real nice and has a crosley radio but doesn't work. Overall the car runs good and doesn't need anything. I'am located 15 miles south of Youngstown Ohio.
















Thanks Rick

Re: Crosley for sale $7500

Hey Rick,    That is a nice wagon! If the interior is as nice as the exterior and engine compartment, That looks like a 12000 dollar car to me. Does this mean you no longer want my pick-up? Your name is still in the glove compartment. Also, will we see you at the nationals?

Hey Jeff,
I actually bought a real nice pickup and don't have room for 3 Crosley's so that's why the wagon has to go, I plan on bringing it to Wauseon so I'll see you there.

Thanks Rick

Rick,  Glad you found a nice pick-up. I look forward to seeing you at the national meet. I attached a picture of the Short Sport and the Crosley squirt. It matches the pick-up perfectly.

I hate to be the bearer of truth.....but;
Anybody that works with metal, particularly body shop folks, such as myself, will tell you a "pin hole" in reality is a corroded area the size of a silver dollar.
Those gas tank sealers are popular with vintage motorcycle restorers and have varying questionable results.
At the end of the day, they grind away the "pin holes" and replace with new metal.

I have had some good results taking the tank down to bear metal on the outside, clean and seal holes with JB Weld over a large area, then  apply SEVERAL coats of that truck bed coating.
Gas and oil resistant, hardness next to the steal itself.

48 Crosley

Since they had no turn signal  lights.  At some point you would use hand signals.    

I don't know about you, but  my Crosley  does  not work work that way.  

Re: 48 Crosley

parkhunter@...
 

Yeah, it's not easy to jam my arm out one half of the sliding window to signal. I had my son make a reversed bracket for the right side so I can install a second taillight and turn signals. 

We have extra brackets if you want one.

You can set the stops on the axle to prevent the tire rub. They may be rusted but that is  the way to fix your problem.

The 4:80 Carlisles are actually a little smaller than the original 4:50. My rough measurement is 21.5" for original 4:50 about 20.5" for 4:80 Carlisle. By the way when I measured the Coker 4:50X12s when they first came out and they were 19.4", I don't know if they are still using the same molds or not.

Crosley actually sold a passenger side taillight as an accessory. It wasn't used as a turn signal just more visibility.
