Re: Modified Hot Shot came home, with tons of spares

Congratulations on your new purchase. Before having much concern about the engine running rough, run it thru several heat & cool cycles, things have a tendency of loosening up and reseating themselves.

As far as the tranny, not staying in second and third gear, rebuilding shifters is quite a common repair procedure.

Hello,

My Hot Shot that I found on bringatrailer.com made it's way to CT.
The previous owner, Hugh Heishman, had a Crosley dealership in about 1950, then one of the first Porsche dealerships, in VA. He built and raced Crosleys, Porsches, and others (Owned Z28 #1 which ran in Trans Am in '67) and built this car himself. I don't have a lot of info, so I posted pictures of the spares etc. It should be a public posting, feel free to comment.

It's not running well, backfiring a lot, and won't stay in 2nd or 3rd gear so it needs some sorting/finishing. Engine sounds great mechanically. It seems to be built EXTREMELY well and when the carb kicks in, it seems quite powerful and wants to rev! Will post pictures of the car's mods and systems later.

thanks!

If you haven't already done so, join the Crosley Automobile Club - worth every bit of the $20/year.  Great buy!

Hi-Jacking Threads

Jim Bollman
 

I have said this many times. Please start a new thread when the topic changes. Pretty hard to sell a 2cyl Crosley when people look back for the message and it is hid in a thread about post-war emblems.

Please just select "New Topic" when changing topics. Or in the case of the 2cyl ad just use the thread that was already started to say it is still available.

I will be moving the 2cyl messages to their own thread so please don't comment on the topic in the Emblems for sale thread.
