Date   
Auction: Hotshot & Sedan - July 14 - Delta, OH

Jim Bollman
 

Not sure if this was planned to fall on the main day of our National meet or just by chance but it is about 20 miles away if anyone wants to attend. Looks like they have a fairly rough Hotshot, a pretty nice looking CC sedan if you like John Deer green and some engines. Lots of other non Crosley stuff. One homemade tractor looks like it has some Crosley parts on it, I couldn't be sure from the pictures if it had a Crosley engine.

What If… 1953 Crosley (7 Alternate-Universe Possibilities) By Frank Peiler

Jim Bollman
 

From the Daily Driver - What If… 1953 Crosley (7 Alternate-Universe Possibilities) By Frank Peiler - Time for another exercise in counterfactual automotive history. This time we ask the question: What would have happened if other carmakers had lent their designers to Crosley Motors to help style an all-new 1953 Crosley lineup?

They think they will get through all of that in one day? Wow. They better have several rings going.

I thought the same thing, you should post a picture of yours in their comments. Here is one I found online but you probably have better pictures.

Steve, I also thought of your Crosley J while reading through the srticle. I have always thought that the Hudson jet looks like a fat Crosley.

I have alway thought that Ford stole the 53-54 Ford Wagon styling from the 49-52 Crosley Wagon.

Folks,

been out in the garage piddling, thinking.  early in the thread someone mentioned good tune up.  please shoot me down as overthinking but,  is there a chance the valves have been adjusted cold?  would that create enough expansion of the shim pack etc when hot to hold the valves open just a bit?  tight enough to bleed off a bit of compression before the plug fires?  grasping at straws trying to help,  Paul Rinehart

Re: car won't run over 35 mph

Paul,

Not to shoot you down, but Crosley valves are supposed to be adjusted COLD.

The first thing to check, is the ignition timing, while you're doing that, also check the distributor advance mechanism. Not super rare to find them stuck.

Crosley In a Boat?

PCeditorpro
 

So I was cleaning out a old building used for storage at a boat yard that closed back in the 1980s or 1990s. Finding out anything about this yard has been a struggle no one knows anything. So we opened a door and found an entire room full of motors. Everything from inboards to outboards and gas to diesel most are in great shape. We pulled one of the Honda out poured in some gas and it fired right up. The only markings I was able to find on the plane brown box was "crosley -1940" on it. It's rusty and the top of the distributor was hit with something but other then that it looks complete. It also has what looks to be a heat exchanger on it. Now I know nothing about this engine but I have been working in a boat yard for 7 years. I would like to either restore this and build a small wooden boat to go with it or sell it to someone that knows more about this engine that will give it a good home. I don't want a piece of history to just be left behind and thrown out. Any knowledge would be helpful thanks.

Butch and Paul,

I haven't been a Crosley owner for ages, but still remember being startled to find the distributor advance mechanism immovable in a station wagon only about 6 years old; who knows what might have happened in there after so many more years?
