Has anyone ever turbocharged a crosley?

Re: Turbo?

Jeff Schumacher <shoe@...>
 

I should! Mine has a Datsun L20B motor that is very “tunable” and can put out 130-150 horse. Fortunately the guy that restored it built a complete subframe support system for the build, complete with a Dodge/Chrysler 8-3/4 rear end and a 5 speed.

Yes, Bob Peterson of Iowa turbocharged his 49 Crosley wagon.  Remember several companies built superchargers for Crosley engines.  Bob fabricated all the tubing required to turbo charge his Crosley engine.

Not sure, Bob Peterson may still have that crosley for sale.

Our '48 CC (Sports Utility) sits on a '52 wagon chassis with all the nice upgrades. I keep a '48 CC chassis complete with tin block to display alongside the SU.  The only minor issue is the emergency brake, having to use the underdash CD setup.  Stopping is always good.

One of the reasons to belong to a car club is to have access to want ads, technical articles, Crosley related news from all around the country and the good fellowship with other Crosley owners - a $20 club, a real bargain!  Here are some more pictures of Bob's wagon.

PreWar Help - Need Advice and an Beehive Air Cleaner

Douglas Grout
 
Edited

As a relative newcomer to the Crosley Club, I'm going to need you guys to help me negotiate the trials and pleasures of Prewar ownership.  I spent a great weekend last summer at the Nationals in Wauseon and met a great many welcoming members including every prewar owner I could find.  Now I'm looking for the impossible-to-find pieces for this car along with all my fellow prewar owners who already have the working knowledge of where to look.  Paul Gorrell was very very helpful in assessing my car which I had brought along....thanks Paul.
 
This car has a later oil-bath air cleaner which the previous owner had adapted (although not particularly well) to fit the waukesha's Tillitson.  I'd prefer to replace it with the original "beehive" style. Are there any of those out there?  I found one in February but I have to buy the whole car that it was attached to.  Or should I work with what I have and simply engineer a better mount?  Heck, I'd even consider purchasing a spare motor just to have it on hand...

A good start looking for help is to start a new topic when you change the conversation. I split your message from the Turbo topic and gave it a new name so hopefully we can get some Prewar experts to pay attention.

Not a Prewar person but not sure why a later oil bath would need modifying if it was for a Tilly and not a Carter carb. As far as I know he prewar Tilly and the postwar Tilly had the same carb throat diameter. A Tilly oil bath should be easy to find on the message board or at the Nationals. I see beehives for sale at the Nationals sometimes, just keep your eyes open. The other option is several of our vendors have aftermarket paper air cleaners for the Tillotson that would get you by till you find a beehive. here is one that Service Motors has. https://servicemotors.net/product/tillotson-air-cleaner/

By the way the beehive  cleaner was used on the early tin block postwar also, that were the same or very similar.

I am not sure just why, but the beehive style air filters seem to be very hard to find. An oil bath air cleaner was a factory accessory available for the pre-wars. So you do have that option and can remain authentic.

Parting out 1950 Wagon

Junkyard4
 

Hello,
I have a 1950 wagon located in Libertyville Illinois. I bought it from the son of a man who was in the middle of a restoration when he passed away. I have receipts totally around $5,000 for the work already done. I’d like to sell the whole thing but willing to part it out if necessary.
The body has been acid dipped which cost them $1,200 to do. They then welded in new floors. It has the vin plate and a current Illinois title that goes with it. If I were to sell the body I’d like to get $850 for it. Lots of stuff comes with the body like seats, glass and trim.
As for the rest of it, we can talk. Just trying to get my money back out of it.
If you’d like pictures or would like to talk please email, call or text. 847-508-3634
4junkyard@...
Thanks,
Paul

I’m trying to avoid posting it on eBay at all possible because someone would probably buy the body for a hotrod.
