I want to thank the group for their expertise. That is why I wanted to join the club. Since the body definately looks like it had to be factory made. The contours are perfect. Could this be a kit car? Maybe the sheet metal parts that came in a kit. With all of your thoughts, maybe an amusement park turnpike car that was put together with the axle, transmission front suspension. I remember at Lake Lansing Michigan they had a turnpike track that had bumpers like the rear bumber. It also looks like it was made by factory. I would guess the thickness of the metal is 20 to 30 gage. It is not tin. Since it doesn't have any sign of dash gauges, a fuel tank, a radiator. The wiring for signals and lights I can see were added not too long ago. It did come with safety glass and rubber for the windshield. Not sure how he got it titled 1951 Crosley. Maybe by the axle patent number. Bill

Thants a fun car! I like that it's a steel body and not fiberglass. I vote restore it, just for the fun. Maybe put a Crosley 4cyl in and run a side exhaust like an old Midget race car...


Re: Thank you for letting me join the club

I agree with James Dlapa.  The only Crosley-like part I could recognize was the rear axle.

It looks like the rear axle is the only identifiable Crosley part on it.

Many were made using all kinds of parts but Crosley drive trains were the most universal.  

No real value on these unless the clowns were famous.

Can you submit a picture of the chassis where the front shocks are bolted to? Any pictures of the front of the chassis would help identify it

Ok, if is not a Crosley car but has a crosley chasis. It must be an early chasis. I was reading on a Crosley site that if the drive line has no u joints. It has a tube the the drive shaft goes through it at the axle pinion shaft. The rear axle does not have brakes. The transmission and dif patent numbers say 1934 The brake is a drive shaft brake only. Then it should be an early chasis. Maybe 39 - 41  So if this is a carnival ride body, I should remove it and just sell the chasis. I figure in this case it has no value any other way and I have nothing to restore. The title that came with it is not legit then. I am I thinking right? Kind od disappointed that this isn't a Crosley. I do appreciate the help on this.

Pre War or Post War   Are there any thoughts? There are no body stampings visible. From what I have read the early Crosleys didn't have u joints. This one doesn't either. I want to restore it but I need an identity of this vehicle. Any thoughts? Thank you, Bill in Ohio

Seb, you can see all the pictures on the site https://groups.io/g/Crosley-Gang/album?id=0&p=Created,,,20,2,0,0 

There were some duplicates that I tried to delete, I think there is 18 unique photos.

Only first two pics will open..From what I see the spring shackle mount on the rear axle is on the top of the axle which means the axle has been rotated 90° so the pinion is pointing up..driveshaft must go to a right angle gear box that is bolted to the pinion area of the axle..There is a horizontal rear spring clamped to axle at ends and the middle of spring is mounted to rear of frame with a large tie rod end..Thats what I see in first two pics..If any welding was done on axle housing odds are its warped..Really need better pics..

I think it's pretty neat and would restore it as a piece of Americana. Like Jim said, it would be a really fun runabout or parade car if it was cleaned up and made usable. I'll bet someone at some point had a vintage Briggs and Stratton, Tecumseh or Clinton motor in there...the one in there now looks much newer and was probably done to get it running -- which is no bad thing. It would be very cool if you could sort it out with a period drivetrain.  Someone clearly spent alot of time putting it all together, including some panel beating to make all the fenders and cut outs look right. Hazarding a guess, I'd say it'd probably be worth more put together than trying to piece out the parts because the Crosley parts in it are fairly common, but the whole car is one of a kind. Just my two cents.

The only thing I saw in the pictures that might be Crosley was the rear axle and even the suspension on that isn't Crosley.

Only the 39 Crosley didn't have a U-Joint. From your pictures I don't see much that I could identify as Crosley accept maybe the frame and differential. I think this is someones garage creation. probably in the 50s or early 60s.
