Stephen,

Your email address below is incomplete. As I have previously posted
on this board, I would really like to find a pre-war Crosley. A pick
up would be a real treat! Email me directly if you are considering
selling. velorexman@...

Best Regards,

Andy Mutz

hello,
We have recently acquired a very good condition 42 crosley truck
and we were wondering what they sale for. Anybody who knows this
please e-mail me back at misterdamascus.com. thanx

Well I'll add my 2 cents also. When I arrived at Weauson at the
National meet in 1984 with my 48 Crosley Panel (TINKER TOY) powered
by a 2000cc pinto engine c-4 trans and pinto rear I was looked upon
by most as an out cast. At the same time many people also looked!
When I returned in 1991 I was met with more respect than before. This
truck has been finished for 18 years, enjoyed by many people and
driven for thousands and thousands of miles. Now comes the
question???? Build it this way or original? I see it build it your
way. I enjoy driving the truck 55-60 mph all day. Some people enjoy
having a 100 point original show car and only driving in and out of a
trailer. Bottom line we all buld them to enjoy and save! So Enjoy!
Thanks! Steve

'47 roundside

"Shawn Robinson" <srobins@...>
 

I would have to agree with Jak on this one. I myself have a 50 wagon completly restored...the only thing is it is prowler purple with limo black windows. I will admit I took some grief for it but like I always say...I saved it from the scrap yard. You are the one that will have to look at the car everyday no one else so I say you do with it what you would like. Shawn


Another view about customs

"bltlar" <bltlar@...>
 

As Papajak said. "This is a sensitive area and I want to be as
diplomatic and respectful of those who have different opinions." I
have ONLY stock and originals, BUT. . . . have noticed, even at the
National Crosley meet, the customized vehicles get all the attention
from the members. Like last year when everybody was talking about the
HS that had a big engine and was widdened by a foot. Good work is
enjoyed by all members no matter what they may say. Each of us has
his or her own preferences of what we own & enjoy, even if they may
be different. At last year National when I asked even the most verbal
stock liking member if this item was original his reply was "It is my
car and I'll do as I damn well please!" I was just asking a simple
question, not condeming. I just walked away shaking my head. So as he
said "Do as you damn well please" and if he says anything just remind
him of his own statement. Sorry, but that hurt me. Larry


Re: 47 roundside pick up

"dccrosley" <Crosleydc@...>
 

I have to line up with Jak on this one.It is YOUR car.I Appreciate
Crosley rods as much as anyone else,But consider this if your
situation allows: Those who restore are correct as well;roundsides
are very hard to find.Many who want one can't find anything that
isn't rusted away,and would pay dearly for yours should you one day
wish to sell it.It could very well be worth more stock than a
streetrod ever would be.Given that,if there is any doubt in your mind
about cutting it up,why not consider giving a good home to one of the
many other Crosleys out there that are very cheap,yet in good enough
shape.Turn one of those into a streetrod,enjoy the best of both types
and avoid possible future regrets.It's ultimately your decision and
car.You should do what YOU want with it.I just thought I would throw
in my ideas.Hope I helped...

Re: '47 roundside pu

Papajaks@...
 

hi mark, a little input phrom another point of view than the ones i've seen
posted. This is a sensitive area and I want to be as diplomatic and
respectful of those who have different opinions. Just remember that the
truck belongs to you and your dreams, not to the club or anybody elses ideals
of what it should be. As phar as i'm concerned, the crosley is the coolest
car ever built and is appreciated as such in what ever configuration the
owner desires.
I own two roundsides: one on a six cylinder jeep chassis, and the other done
with a hot rod phlame job. Neither are what they were out of the showroom,
but both are vehicles I always wanted, and I defend my right to do what I
wish with what is mine.
With my regards, Jak

Doug E Arthur <drphartz@...>
 

Hey Mark, Art here. I also have a '47 Round Side Pickup, It has been
messed with a bit, Top cut off, and bed covered. Really too bad as these
are scarce. I've only been in the club for a year or so, but the guys
that know say..."Try to keep this thing as Stock as possible". I know a
guy that has a stock '47 Pickup, and at Nationals I think there was only
3 examples, You should try to stay stock, within reason, Money I mean
heheh. Good Luck, Art

p.s. - I'll buy the doors off of it?? heheh

'47 Round-side Pickup Truck

x779@...
 

Mark, you asked for input on this, and here's mine:

You did hear correctly. These are very scarce (always have been), and
should be restored, not customized and/or hotrodded. There are very few,
even in the Club.

I can't help but cringe at the thought of this solid original car being
molested. Please keep it Crosley. Thanks.

Lou

Re: How to?

"iamrustless" <bethalk@...>
 

Check the threads on the stud. Still good? Wrap a rag around the
area where the threaded stud hole is. Clean out the threaded hole
with some spray degreaser (wear good eye protection). If the threads
in the hole are still good (you are lucky) use some locktite to
secure the stud in the hole. Put two nuts on the top portion of the
stud, lock them together, and install the stud into the hole. This
has worked well for me on other applications. Hal


How to?

"imakarknut" <karknut@...>
 

Thanks for the previous assistance. I have now succeded in taking
the carb off the '48 stationwagon and think I've cleaned it up and it
should now do its thing. However, in order to get at the back nut I
did take off the cam cover and discovered that one of the little
studs that goes through the cam cover and holds it in place, came off
when I took the cover off. It appears to have been loose, since I
see no new metal shining but who knows? I need to know the best way
to reattach the stud. I welcome all suggestions since I am very new
at this Crosley thing! Thanks. Steve

back out. on a happier note "Merlins" restoration is going very well,
Nara and I have been building the bare frame back up to a chassis
again, hope to see you at the nationals in July......
