Casey, I am not sure what a CT-3 is, though I am familiar with the 2 cylinder Waukasha engine in the pre-war Crosleys. It was 12 h.p.  I am more familiar though with the post war Crosley engine. 4 cylinder, 44 cubic inch, 26 h.p.  The post war engines are plentiful.

Hi,
My name is Casey Standifer.  I am new to the group and I'm looking for any information that I can find on the CT-3 jeep.  My Grandfather purchased a CT-3 at a sale that Aberdeen Proving Grounds (Aberdeen,Md) had approximately 50 years ago.  I drove this around when I was a kid and was able to obtain it once my Grandfather passed away.  My main question is that this jeep has a Crosley 4 cylinder engine installed.  Everything that I have read about this states that all 37 that were produced had a 2 cylinder engine.  I am fairly certain that my Grandfather did not install this engine and it is how it came directly from the military sale at APG. Would anyone know if a prototype 4 cylinder was ever done to help improve the lack of power that they had?

Thank You,
Casey Standifer

If it is an original CT-3, that is a rare vehicle.   Do you have any photos of it you can post?  Is the data plate still on it?  If so, what is the serial number?

I expect to bring a bunch of used original tires Wasseon in July.  I will have a host of other parts.  Got about 8 engines and all kinds of extra parts with my 2 Crosleys.  Still need to sort thru a lot of it.  I can't see needing all this stuff.
