Jim,
I do not know where you are. Just about any reprographics firm can take your
old blue prints and photographically or by reproductive means make new
prints. I would suggest someone like Thomas Reprographics in the Dallas
area. If you have a problem with reading blue prints, they can make the new
prints either as blue or black lines.

Norman testing

"tmkldwwj" <tmkldwwj@...>
 

I ran my engine for about 10 minutes tonight and with the rear up on
blocks I ran it through the gears. It shifted smoothly and
everything seemed to work perfectly. Got 1 or 2 small oil leaks to
tighten up and got to take the radiator off again and resolder it but
I'm relly starting to believe that I can finish this project. Can't
wait to put the body back on. Ordered my seat covers last week to
redo the seats. I hope it doesn't take too long for them to come.
Also waiting on the wiring harness(due in the next couple of weeks).
I couldn't have gotten this far without all of you guys and your help
and advice. I know I've got a lot of obstacles ahead but I'll make
it by Wauseon, one way or another.

original blueprints

"dccrosley" <Crosleydc@...>
 

Jim,I was reading through some old quarterlies and saw something
about the club owning the original blueprints/engineering drawings.If
not,who has them now? I'd like to see these very much.Is there any
chance of getting them on the website,in the quarterly,or on Crosley
Gang for all to see? How about copies for sale?
Also please remove my duplicate entry in the what's in your garage
database.Thanks!

Dave Coudriet.

49 or 50

"Jim_Bollman" <Jim@...>
 

David Coudriet: I read in the database that you have a 50 serial number but you think your Crosley has the features of an early 49. I have an early 49, what features does yours have that you think are in question?

Hi,
The differences in the wiper motors are the shaft lengths. The vcs
are longer and thus the shafts and both innner and outer spacers are
longer and different from the ccs and cds. Otherwise the motors are
the same other than the control rod may be a little longer on some.

Re: VC wiper motors

"Barb and Clarence Kapraun" <backap1@...>
 

Yes they are different. The shaft where the wiper attaches is longer. The
motor itself is the same so you could replace the shafts. Also the knobs are
longer and they push /pull instead of slide sideways to activate the wiper.

Re: original blueprints

Jim Bollman <Jim@...>
 

Chuck,

I looked into getting them duplicated soon after I received them and the cost was prohibitive at that time (25+ years ago) for the funds we had available in the club treasury. It should certainly be brought up again with all the new technology and a healthier budget. With the club changing leadership this summer it may have to wait till the dust settles.

x779@...
 

The Metropolitan Opera star died at 82 on March 23 of this year. I
believe she was a Crosley owner and that there is a photo of her with
her 2-cylinder Crosley convertible taken in the 1940s.

Incidentally, Paulette Goddard also owned a similar Crosley, a gift from
her mother, and she appeared with Ray Milland in "The Cryslal Ball" with
a Crosley convertible. I wonder if that was her personal car. In the
movie it was referred to as Ray's "interim wartime automobile".

1940 blueprints

x779@...
 

Is the signature(s) readable on these? that might tell us the designer's
name.
Also, I wonder why there would be blueprints for the 1940 model year, as
the 1940 cars were almost identical to the first 1939s.

Now a 51 SS on ebay. Looks pretty good. $5 grand start. and a

I have not seen these since I stepped down from president back in the 80s so my memory of them is limited.

head liners

"crsoleykid" <Phs962@...>
 

Has anyone come up with a source for the pressed paper used in the
head liners and side panels ? I was at Sherwin Williams Paints today
and found a patern that is a good match as far as the pattern goes,
the colors were Green and Beige but they can be painted with a latex
paint. It also comes in 27" and 54" which would be great for the head
liners.Pattern was from [ Basic Textures ]pages 3,35 and 39.

Re: SS on Ebay

I'm only about 40 miles from the SS on eBay. Thought I knew all the Super Sports in the area but missed this one. Wonder what the real serial number is since the given one doesn't match a 51 SS.
