Re: '47 roundside pu

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

WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED HERE?????

"BUGGER5913" <bugger5913@...>
 

Okay I have joined the "NEW" group, and from what I can gather, yahoo
got cute and pulled the rug out from under the old club, question;
where did the old photo albums go?? are they gone, if so it will be a
long time before I place any more and I will have to dig the pictures
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......

Did Crosley sell trailers?

I have come across a really cute little trailer. It looks like it
would be Crosley size (or other small car). Did Crosley ever make or
sell trailers? Thanks, Hal


Re: New "Groups" - Confused???

"Jim_Bollman" <Jim@...>
 

I believe I understand most of what is going on in Groups, or I'm
confused and just think I do. :-)

The big difference from Clubs is that you can receive and send message
to the Group via eMail instead of doing it on the board itself. You
can still post and read directly on the board. For those that are
members, you can configure your membership for how you want to read
the messages. (this sometimes doesn't work the first time)

Since eMail can be in the loop the order of the messages can be
different from what you expect. If eMail is in the loop messages may
get lost. If you post directly on the board it should be close to the
same as the Club approach.

YaHoo servers overload regularly and cause problems that can add to
the illusion of confusion.

Re: IcyBall

Jim Bollman <Jim@...>
 

So few Icyballs change hands that it is hard to establish a price. If you have the cabinet, burner, ice cube tray and equalizer pan it would increase the value. Then there is condition. Besides advertising here I have a private list of people interested in Icyballs that I send info to a few times a year, some of them are looking to buy.

Jim...

Subject: Re: Re: Truck For Sale
Hi Jim,
My 51 customized Crosley (started as a station wagon) is for sale. It looks
like a miniature El Caino with a bed cover not removable. The conversion is
very professional. It is turquoise in color and has 2 convertible tops one
black, one white. It has a rebuilt engine with less 300 miles on it. It has
chrome beauty rings and new tires.You can see a picture of it in the winter
1997 Quarterly on page 5 and on the front cover of the Fall 1998 issue (3rd
picture down on right side). I am asking $3500.00 for it. It is located in
Lake Cicott, IN about an hour and a half south of South Bend, IN.
