47 Crosley sedan for sale

"vortec57" <vortec57@...>
 

I have a 47 Crosley sedan in very good shape for sale, it is mostly
complete though there is a hole in the engine block. I also have a
lot of spare parts, tranny, guages, starter, carbs, etc. that I can
either send with the car or seperate. If anyone has an engine that
is running or could be fixed easily I would be interested in that
also. If you want pictures please e mail me at ponyboy84@...

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

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

'47 roundside pu

"threeneely" <3neely@...>
 

I'm the proud owner of a 47 roundside pu. i've owned this puppy for
33 years. it is merely a shell, no interior, engine or trans. its
straight and rust free. what do i have? how rare is it? at one
time, when i was younger, i remeber seeing an article saying that
there were less than 400 or so left in existence. is this true? i
have always pictured this little truck as a mini pro-street. small
block chev, 700r4, ford 9inch (no axle tubes) etc... please dont
cringe! i've had this since i was 7 and havent started yet! any and
all information would be most appreciated. thanks!

'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.

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

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

My seats are in!

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...

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

'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

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

Stephen,

Your email address below is incomplete. As I have previously posted

up would be a real treat! Email me directly if you are considering
selling. velorexman@...

Re: '47 roundside pu

"Jim_Bollman" <Jim@...>
 

Mark,

I can't be much help on what to do with it, I like all Crosley stock,
street rod and in between. I can tell you a few facts to help you
make up your mind. Lots more than 400 made. I list over 3100 trucks
in 46 and 47. Some of that number is early slab side and probably a
few Sedan Delivers but neither of those started production till
November. I can not get you an exact number but 2000+ would be a
closer guess.

If you want to go stock or near stock most any of the standard models
can act as a donor vehicle. If you pick a late model you get
hydraulic brakes. You have to add some supports for the bed on the
frame if it is a sedan or wagon frame. A poor condition parts car
would be fairly cheap to get.

If you really have the need for speed, but can't bring yourself to
start cutting or the ability (highly modified cars take some talent
and money) you might go for hopped up near stock. Stock engines can
be built up to nearly double stock HP without getting to radical.
Homelite and Bearcat boat engines that were based on the Crosley
design can be converted to car use and look stock to many people and
get you 55hp without any extra hopping. I drove a 49 wagon with a
Homelite, it is amazing what double the HP does. The soup up approach
requires only bolt on mods and if you later want to convert to stock
it is pretty easy. Some even change to a 4 speed and a narrowed
Austin or other rear end. The next step up is put a larger 4cyl of
another make. How much you have to modify depends on the engine you pick.

Since you have just the body you could just drop it on a different
chassis. The earlier Jeep CJs have around a 81" wheel base pretty
close match but you will either have to cut a lot on the fenders or
jack the body up. All kinds of engine swap articles on the CJ.

To go more radical is beyond my abilities but several members in the
club can probably advise.

Re: F-O-R apart: $1500.00 to $2500.00 depending on completeness. What is
complete? Does it have: the hydraulic pump, the hydraulic oil tank, front
or rear PTO shafts, cast dual wheels, second tranny, PTO transfer case,
front or rear hydraulic bumpers, rear dump bed or straight bed, seats or
seat frames, rear taillight assembly? These are all parts unique to the
Farm-O-Road without them it is far from complete. All of these parts are
very hard to find and expensive when located. Hope this helps, Kap

We could get a better idea of what you have if you could post some pictures on our photo page. There were several models of trucks available in 42, all rare. Posting the serial number would help verify the year.

Garage construction

Some of you folks that visit the chat room(when it works) have asked
me about the progress of my new garage I am having built. The roof
is finished and the sides are ready for the application of stucco.

Follow the link below. In the album titled "construction" is the
lastest pictures. The album "Tonys pictures" there are several
pictures as the building goes up.

And the album "Harley is 3" is a couple of pics of my youngest grand
daughter's birthday party
