Help with value on inherited 1952 Crosley Hot Shot (??)

"k7luh" <k7luh@...>
 

I just inherited what is supposed to be a 1952 Crosley Hot Shot
Convertible. The "Hot Shot" designation may be someone's confusion
with a British car made in the 1930s. In any case, this convertible
has been stored since 1963 and has North Dakota plates from that
year. It's pretty much a basket case and reportedly hasn't been
started since the 1960s.

I am trying to decide whether to try to restore the car or just sell
it as is. I'm a bit afraid to try to restore something I know
nothing about and perhaps selling it to someone who knows more about
these cars would be better but I have absolutely no idea of value.

The car is altogether. I don't see much rust but the ragtop is gone
(the metal rods are still there), the engine has about an inch of
grime, the body seems to be in fairly good shape but someone has
attached some kind of metal decorations to the front top hood, etc.

Pretty much what you would expect from something that has been
poorly stored since 1963.

Any ideas on value in this condition would be greatly appreciated!

One good thing,... its been stored in the dry climate of Montana.

So far I can't find a title but it does have the Crosley emblem on
the front.

Finally, a neighbor told me that he thinks it was purchased from a
hardware store in North Dakota for $200 when new.
HELP!

Have you looked on E-Bay? there were a number of them on recently.
Also, you shouldn't limit your search to your area, Crosley
transmissions are relatively light and not too expensive to ship.
You could easily have one from almost any area of the country.

Re: Help with value on inherited 1952 Crosley Hot Shot (??)

Lynn Baker <k7luh@...>
 

Thanks much for the info, Gary. I took some photos of
it today and checked the serial number. It is
definitely a Hot Shot cause the metal sticker is still
there... just on a side I didn't look at. Looks like
it may be a 1949 instead of a 52 cause the vin matches
the 49 vin from info on the webpage.
I'll try to send you the pics I took but who knows
whether they will arrive cause this is the first time
I've tried to upload photos. Let me know if you get
them.

That homebuilt and the station wagons sure look like the cars that
Marshall Sargent left on the property in North Uxbridge, MA. He sold
the land to a guy named Leonard Wiersma who operates a tank
fabrication business nearby.

I'm still looking for a decent pre-war car if anyone is considering
selling.

Calling all Super Sports / Hotshots

"cacracer" <cmshoemaker@...>
 

Attention all Crosley Club Owners/Drivers:

The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix (PVGP) is just around the corner
(July 19th & 20th) and the VSCCA would like for all of you to make
an effort to sign-up & attend the event. Currently the PVGP will
have both an "Under 1 Liter" and "Preservation" class running.

There are plenty of slots open in both classes, so sign up today.
Once again this is an event in which you will run with your peers in
the other small bore cars. DO NOT miss this opputunity to run your
car in a race environment (actually 7/10 or less race environment)

If you haven't run the PVGP before than you've never experienced the
best vintage racing available in North America. To the best of my
knowledge, the PVGP is the only vintage event in North America to
actually race on public city streets - when was the last time you
got to do that (legally that is...)?

In addition to having the most challenging course around, did I
mention the thousands of fans who get to watch and enjoy our
historic cars being driven the way they are supposed too - and not
just sitting in some museum as a static display.

There's always so much activity & fun at the PVGP that if you can
only run one event this year, this is the one to run.

Most importantly, the event raises thousands of dollars each year for
two great charities, which are the Allegheny Valley School and The
Autism Society of Pittsburgh.

To find out even more about the PVGP, visit their website at:
(http://www.pittsburghvintagegrandprix.com/index.html)

For more information about the Allegheny Valley School:
(http://www.pittsburghvintagegrandprix.com/html/allegheny_valley_scho
ol.html)

For more information about The Autism Society of Pittsburgh:
(http://www.pittsburghvintagegrandprix.com/html/autism_society_of_pit
tsburgh.html)

And of course, to sign-up for the event, please visit:
http://www.cloverleaf-auto.com/pvgp_intro.htm

Won't you please help us show Pittsburgh the largest field of small
bore cars ever.

47CC dip stick question

"cosmicray48236" <sgreiner@...>
 

I am trying to determine if the dip stick that I have is the correct
one. When inserted in the block the tip of the stick rests on the oil
pan bottom. The add oil line is 1 7/16" from the tip. The Full line is
2 3/16" from the tip. The reason for the question is that when going
downhill with the oil level above the add oil mark, oil seems to
dribble out of the engine from someplace. Any advice will be much
appreciated. Skip

Hello, Everyone. I'm new to the group, referred here by Christopher
Shoemaker. I'm a member of the VSCCA, and thinking of buying the '50
Crosley-Gardner HotShot race car currently being advertised. I've
got some information on it from Fantasy Junction, who's selling it-
about its race history in California in the '50's. Does anyone know
this car? I'm in Connecticut, so I don't want to make a trip out to
look at the car unless I'm convinced it's what I really want.
Thanks for your help!
