Pickups were made from parts used in other Crosley’s but they were not cut down from an already assembled vehicle. Pictures of the bed of the truck, tail gate and bulkhead between the cab and bed will answer the questions. There is also a modification to the frame in the back on a true pickup. From what the video shows it looks like it might be made from a wagon. But more pictures are needed.

As far as your windshield, I'd contact Crofton adviser Steve Miller.  Magazines seem to have hit a few hitches this issue,  if you are sure your membership is current, send a note to Abbie.

A picture of the rear cab section would be helpful. The rear window looks much larger than stock.

RE: Vapor Lock
An older thread ... but I wanted to relay to you what happened to my 47 coupe recently regarding vapor lock - percolating gas. I had a similar problem...never happened before on this car. 

I found that my inline metal gas filter and a long fuel line to the carb inlet, slipped down very close to my exhaust manifold.  The gas was being "pre-cooked" and caused my vapor lock/percolating fuel. Pretty obvious, but the last thing in a string of recommendations. was a very simple...but correct fix.

Re: vapor lock issue

Dennis,
I am pretty sure I have my problem fixed with careful routing of the fuel line and removal of an in line non functioning but restrictive electric fuel pump. My take on the the location of the fuel pump directly above the exhaust manifold is that it only takes a minor issue to doom the fuel fuel delivery. I also took a great suggestion and wrapped the exhaust manifold and the first 18 inches of the exhaust pipe with “tungsten wrap”. That should lower the Underwood Temps.

Re: 4-speed gearbox

Robert Connearney
 

Jim -- Early (most) Midgets had the same transmission as Sprites. The Midget 1500 has a Spitfire transmission (and engine). I think these all (?) had an iron case. I'd guess they date back to the Herald, maybe even to its predecessor, the TR-10. I'd be surprised if any Club cared, or would even notice, that you're using a later transmission.

Do you have any idea how either of these boxes are converted to  Crosley torque tube, closed drive? What are you using for a rear in your "special"? Crosley? Sprite? I wonder if anyone has converted a Crosley rear to open drive. There were many applications for this differential (golf carts, lawn tractors), I'd guess there are standard pieces available for this conversion.

Would love to see some pictures of your car!

Hi Robert, for an unfunushed 50s special project I am attempting to complete I have acquired two 4-speeds,an MG Midget 15 00 and an Austin Healey Sprite Rib Cage. I actually like the Midget tranny more but will  be using the Sprite because the Midget isn't age qualified for most vintage racing organizations. Also some  folks here advised me that the Sprite was an easier install. The Midget has a separate bellhousing and appears to be more compact.  I would gladly sell it to you to recoup part of my investment. 'Email me at lftrn97@... if you are interested. I can send pictures and discuss price and how to get it to you.
