James,

Yes, we did one many years ago. Like yours, that block was very special. It was a lot of work and required some special procedures.

I'm not sure if some of the materials are available any longer.

Can your block be saved by boring and have custom pistons made? That would probably be less expensive.

Should you speak with them, make sure that they know that it's only a 2 1/2" bore, and a blind hole (no head). That's what complicates the procedure.

Interesting looking special.  I like the windshield.  It looks much nicer than many of the specials I have seen.  I am really curious about the transmission.  I couldn't really see it in any of the pictures.  The bell housing reminds me of one from a military generator set.  Anyone have any more information?

Yeah it's probably Geoff Hackers neighborhood.  He has the business selling the car.  He specializes in long lost fiberglass vehicles.

Reminder: “Powel Crosley: The Man, the Magic, and the Machine!” - Monday, April 1, 2019 (7:15 - 8:15 pm)

Jim Bollman
 

This is a reminder that Bill Mitchell and I will present “Powel Crosley:  The Man, the Magic, and the Machine!” on Monday evening, April 1, 2019, at Jimmy’s Charhouse, 1180 West Devon Avenue, Elk Grove Village, IL.
 
So who was Powel Crosley?  After getting his start manufacturing and selling automotive accessories, he became the “Henry Ford of the Radio,” pioneering the sale of millions of high quality, low cost home radios.  Additionally, he founded and operated the most powerful radio station in America ("The Nation's Station"), manufactured and sold unique refrigerators and other home appliances, and started aircraft and car companies. He owned the Cincinnati Reds and Crosley Field, taking the team to two World Series.  Owning one of the most successful Depression Era business conglomerates, he kept thousands of people employed and improved the quality of life for millions more who purchased his products.  During World War II he manufactured innovative, highly effective anti-aircraft shells and designed an alternative to the Jeep.  After the war he perfected his invention of the first low-cost, energy efficient compact car and marketed Crosleys “to the masses - not the classes.” 
 
Powel Crosley was an inventor, innovator, manufacturer, and sales wizard who will forever be remembered as hard working, passionate, and generous to his workers and those less fortunate in his community.
 
Don’t miss this overview of one of America’s most intriguing entrepreneurs and “car guys.”
 
As always, the camaraderie and optional dinner (order off the menu with separate checks) starts at 6:00 p.m., the program is 7:15 – 8:15 p.m., and the club business meeting is 8:15 – 9:00 p.m.  Those who come for the program need not stay for the meeting.
 
You need not RSVP and of course admission is free.

PS – As Activities Director for the Packard Club, it is my job to promote participation at our programs.  I never have trouble characterizing our speakers as among the most knowledgeable, best presenters among those in their respective fields.  It's true.  But I feel funny promoting a presentation that I am a part of.  Bill and I pledge to do everything we can to meet the high standards our club has set for our monthly programs and hope that you can make it next Monday.

Here is the engine compartment. The Homelite 55 really makes for a great driver and you can brag you have a Big Block Crosley 59CI up from 44CI. With header it probably puts out 60hp + you will feel the difference.
