1950 Crosley Wagon For Sale in Northern Illinois

Steve
 

To all the club members,

I live very close to this Crosley.  A year ago I went over and visited with Darrin and his father.  Everything is exactly as described.  Darrin has sent me many pictures that I will gladly share.  Feel free to ask.  If you want, I will be glad to go back over and be your “mobile” eyes to look things over once again and provide “live” descriptions.

 

-Steve Miller, CAC member and Illinois Region President.

 

 

Darrin Ross added 5 photos in CROSLEY Automobiles...Fun little cars! .       Darrin Ross November 25 at 12:30am   1950 Crosley Wagon $3,500 - Round Lake, IL Hello, my father and I were in the process of restoring this 1950 Crosley station wagon. He became ill and passed away. Now we're forced to sell it due to space and time issues. Here are the basics. I can add many more pics and the details. The body was removed and acid dipped The frame was stripped, then re-painted Rebuilt engine, generator, and starter 6-volt New brakes, brake lines, king pins, shocks The drivetrain is ready to go. There are a ton of new parts. All weather stripping, grill, glass is complete (mostly used glass except for 2 new windows). The body work needs finishing. There are seats, but they are in poor condition. Needs much of the interior also. There is no wiring in the car, although I can hook it up to start it. I will try to add more detail in the next few days. Receipts total over $5000 not including what he paid for the car, plus parts he paid cash for. Also, feel free to tell me if I'm way out of line with the price, as it was hard to find Crosleys in comparable state of restoration. Thanks for looking.

Sounds cool Bob, I see you are at the same place I visited a few years back.  Really miss those Phoenix trips.  I added a couple of pictures from Bob's model car collection - a very impressive display.

Mike, I have successfully used John Wolf in 
Ohio for gauge restoration in the past. He has done a phenomenal job with my prewar gauges that had the glass broken out and were nearly illegible. He had done a few sets for me. Not the quickest turn around but if planned ahead , well worth it.

Mike,  Typically the speedometer and guage cluster are restorable. They are well protected under the dash and also have a heavy duty housing. The faces and the bezels are paintable. I have restored my own, however it is a very pains taking job. If Service Motors will work on the set you have, it is worth whatever they charge.

The Crosley models in my collection are scratch built in 1-25 scale using sheet plastic in their construction. The ones I have are 3 cd wagons, 1 cd panel delivery, 1 cd pickup, 4 made of wood include 2 cd convertibles, and 2 vc roadsters. I will be taking pictures after Christmas. I do hope this answers your questions. thanks for your interest.

Bob Hickman, stay tuned.

Mike, welcome to the world of Crosley ! The best way to start getting the Crosley quarterly, is to become a member of the club. You will find a membership form on our club website. You are always welcome to ask any questions you may have and either myself or someone who knows the answer will certainly respond. As far as getting a copy of the winter quarterly, I will leave that up to Fred Syrdal, the club editor.
         Sincerely, 
   Jeffrey Ackerman
Vice president, Crosley Automobile Club

Seems like a WHOLE lot of effort but silver solder would be my first attempt in keeping with cheap metal repair.

Last call for anything for the club magazine.  The Quarterly goes to print next week so this is the last weekend for anything, ads, articles, regional stuff, etc.  It should be in everyone's mailbox before Chrismas, usually about Dec 15th.
