Re: FREE ! Crosley Deep Freezer

ROBERT L GREGG <capngrog@...>
 

My Dad, who was a Crosley dealer in Miami, won a Crosley deep freezer at an annual dealers' meeting in, I believe, Cincinnati.  This was, as I recall, around 1951.  Our family used that freezer until my parents moved into a condo in 1985.  The freezer was still going strong when they sold it, and I don't recall any service or repairs being required while our family owned it.

"to the dump"???  Isn't there some dealer in used appliances that you could give it to, with the hope that eventually it would find a new home?  Might need some explanation about the life-expectancy of such an old item.

Surely one of the Crosley Club members in your area will snap that up! Most of the diehard members are returning from the National meet as we speak. If only GA was a little closer to you.
Please don't scrap it!

Making new tie rods........maybe, possible ???

Tim Hamblen
 

Just looking thru my newest Speedway catalog and notice they sell tie rod ends , both weld on and threaded and tie rod tubes. Does anyone happen to know the taper of  Crosley tie rod ends ? and would such a thing be possible ? They sell a couple different tapers and sizes . If using a new matched tube the size would not really matter. Am I missing something ? Would brand spanking new tie rods be possible ?

? Engine

Kevin Church <klchurch59@...>
 

Any body got any ideas what the double backwards S is on this engine. Also looks like an "X" block.

Re: ? Engine

seb fontana
 

May I be the first to say that is a first? Well at least for me..Neat X makes about the 4th or 5th now known I think but have no idea at this time what the back wards SS maybe, well, Super Sport that someone didn't scratch backwards in mols so it would cast front wards? Just babbling!  Seb.

Appears to be an industrial engine by the location of the Crosley name.

Re: ? Engine

Kevin Church <klchurch59@...>
 

my understanding of the crosley location on the block was because they changed the height of the top of the block

Not sure what the reason for the change in position but generally early cast iron blocks used in CoBra conversions had the name back. I have also seen some industrial engines with the block but it may just be when the pictures were taken.

That is a very early tin block replacement block. I have only seen about 10 of these. It is a flat top compression chamber.

Thanks Barry. Any idea what it's worth?

I have an engine with the same Crosley name placement and the same "X" below the casting number. It does not have any other SS markings. The serial number on the block is very close. They were both in the low 10XXXX range. This puts them both in early CIBA production, probably 1949 or 1950. That would make them unlikely to be conversion blocks. However, the conversion blocks did have The Crosley logo in the same position. COBRA engines had serial numbers less than 100,000.

They probably did make the earliest CIBA engines with the same placement but more were probably used in conversions since production dropped off so much in 49.

You asked about the value of this engine. It is unusual and probably represents a small production run with some new characteristics, designated by the X cast into the block. The SS may have also represented some other aspect of an investigational change. However, it is not a particularly adventageous block for building a new engine.it is a curiosity worth preserving, but I doubt that anyone would pay any more for it than any other Crosley engine.

Wauseon '17

Andy Drake
 


I'd like to thank everyone involved in pulling off another awesome national meet this year! We had almost 100 cars in attendance and members from literally all across the U.S. converged in Wauseon. The vendors always do a nice job and more than one car was tuned up during the meet. Can't beat the access to the right parts! I always enjoy the weird stuff that also shows up -- whether it's prototype vehicles, period customs, H-mod racers or non-automotive items Crosley manufactured. 

It's worth mentioning we had an influx of new members who came to the show for the first time. Nearly all the regulars were also there, many of which have become like family. More than once I heard "Crosley people are the friendliest around." And it's true. Hope to see you next year!

Re: Wauseon '17

Jim Bollman
 

Yep another great year.

Just wanted to warn everyone I'm still on the road another week till I get home to a fast network. So the meet photos will be a bit delayed going on the club web site.

I would like to add to andys post, in that this was my wife and I's 1st year.  We were only able to come out on Saturday, but had a great time.  We joined the CAC while there. I've been around hot rods and car shows starting when I was 8, making it over 25 years now and this was one of the most enjoyable gatherings I've been too. Everyone was very friendly and we were amazed by how affordable everything was, from parts prices, to shirts and concessions.  I like to build my cars myself and I got the feeling that many of the crosley people are do it yourselfers also.  I really respect that. It was nice talking to people that were actually involved in restoring their cars, this isn't as common at mainstream events anymore. We are looking forward to getting our first crosley and hopefully will be able to bring it next year, thanks to all involved in putting such a nice event together!

Disc brake rotors

  Hi
  Have three Crosley rear disc brake rotors to sell. Two are good used. The third has a small crack in the hub near the key slot . Understand cracked hubs can be saved by fitting a metal sleeve around the hub. Asking $50. for the hubs, freight included
