Selling my 51 Super Sports

Jared Cohen
 

Hi everyone. I tracked down a 52 Super Sports that was a little closer to being able to show than this one so I’ve decided to let it go. It is on eBay and the item number is 163664865227. All of the pictures and information are in the ad but if you’d like more please do not hesitate to ask here or through eBay. Thanks

You folks in the PNW have all the good stuff....you're just too far away.  I took the train out to Seattle back in '99 & drove a '54 Kaiser Manhattan home....fun trip but gosh it was long....

To bad you are not close to Royal City, WA.  I have a number of blocks I don’t plan on using.  If you know a trucker that comes this way?  Kent

I'd be interested in a low cost radiator. Doesn't have to be very pretty or even super water tight.  I plan to build a water flow stand using an old motor block & radiator.  I'll be looking for a ciba block too....maybe one that's not useable for running, but can be made water tight.

I and other vendors always seem to have radiators in all conditions from $10 and up at the nationals.  I'll be there with about 4 or 5.

I have always used these quality batteries from Napa

Other ways to get 12 volt is run a 12 volt alternator and regulator with a rv (motor home) 12 volt water pump or  I have used a mid 50s chevy generator (& regulator) that ran a power steering pump and drilled a hole in the shaft to drive the water pump. These type delco generators are a little larger than the Crosley autolites so the bracket has to be ground out a little. Just a couple options to run 12 volt. Note all these 12 volt conversions are for negative grounds.

Good morning. Wondering if a motorcycle battery will work , enough crank

Re: Crosley Registries...

Jim Hostetter
 

I recently bought a 1951 Crosley Station Wagon with a missing serial number plate. You mentioned you found the vin# on the frame. Where would that be located? I will also be interested in having a new vin# plate made. Any additional information would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

I like the idea of a Crosley registry. I have discovered a lot about VIN (serial) numbers on VC’s as my serial number plate was missing. After much research I was able to find the number on the frame after sanding off some of the paint - VC10091. I am having a new plate made by the former owner of Service Motors as he still has the tooling to make the plates. Without the Serial Number California would not have registered the vehicle as a Crosley!

To comply with the sites request, I read this after I sent the first post.  
My interest in Crosley is somewhat unrelated as far as a complete automobile. I have 2 Power King , Economy tractors that I have replaced the original Kohler single cylinder air cooled engines with Cast iron 4 cylinder Crosley engines. Te Power King tractors were mfg'ed. with a T-82 Crosley engine and clutch assembly so connecting was no problem. The engines being somewhat longer and requiring a radiator took some changing. Now where do I find room for the gas tank and battery. Got the gas tank part solver but now the battery. A 6 volt car battery is large and there is no good place to put it. This is why I'm considering a motorcycle battery and wondering if it would turn the engine. 
Once I figure out how to post pictures I'll send some through.
