In all the versions I’ve seen. There is no pan on the rear from the factory. Some folks have added them for the aesthetics.

With no knowledge of what Crosley offered as standard, I would like to offer a plausible explanation.  Rear bumpers were an option on Ford, Chevy, etc. pickups of the 40s-50's era.  Is it possible that the Crosley rear pickup bumper was also a dealer installed option?  If so, the splash pan installation would have required not only painting to match the body, but also the removal of the tailgate hinge to insert the splash pan in its place under the hinge bolts.  All this would have increased the cost of installation beyond what economy minded Crosley buyers would pay.  After I wrote this, I found this picture from a CC brochure with a wagon fendered pick up without a bumper.  This supports my theory.

I do agree the wagon fendered pickup looks much better with the splash pan, but I think the roundside pu looks ok without a splash pan.

To throw some factory photos on the other side of the argument. Here is a bunch of photos from a CC pickup flyer. Most of the photos you can see a bumper. I don't remember seeing any reference to optional bumpers one way or another.

Re: CD trucks ..splash pan on rear or not ??

The 49 PU I just got is in good enough condition that I want to do a really good , authentic rest on it.That's why I am asking. The bumper and a splash pan are missing , so I need to know if I need both or just a bumper. Someone in it's past has fabbed up a custom roll pan and that has to go. I've not got under it yest to see how I will have to return it to it's OEM state. I may need the two dog ears under the rear quarters too. The worst of the body is the tailgate. It's rotted away in the center of the thing, both the skin and the support inside. So I will be jonesing a new tailgate at Wauseon.(and maybe the dog ears)

Re: CD trucks ..splash pan on rear or not ??

Jeremy Rutherford
 

Does someone sell the “dog ears” or is used the only option?

Used is it. In a pinch they could probably be fabricated.

1950 CROSLEY WAGON

Normally I prefer an original restoration, but I do love the custom interior in this one.  The door panesl with arm rests are a great touch.  A very nice car, but the asking price????  Ouch.

In regards to the price on this restored '49 wagon, I would say, the price is on target for this quality of work. I just finished my '48 wagon, took 27 months, about 5000 bucks and 800 - 1000 hours of work. I just insured it realistically at $16000.

Doesn’t seem unrealistic to me, either, if someone wants a turnkey Crosley. Quite a lot depends on how much we value our own time.

Front axle

Dave
 

I was going to replace the spring  bushings on my front axle and yesterday I picked up a front axle with springs (it is not straight across it is offset in the middle) supposed to from a Hot or super sport, with disc brakes and springs. This axle has no oil or dirt on it and the springs almost look new. Would any or all of this minus the disc parts work on my 48 with mechanical brakes? Is this not the heavier front axle?
