Reminder: “Powel Crosley: The Man, the Magic, and the Machine!” - Monday, April 1, 2019 (7:15 - 8:15 pm)

Jim Bollman
 

This is a reminder that Bill Mitchell and I will present “Powel Crosley:  The Man, the Magic, and the Machine!” on Monday evening, April 1, 2019, at Jimmy’s Charhouse, 1180 West Devon Avenue, Elk Grove Village, IL.
 
So who was Powel Crosley?  After getting his start manufacturing and selling automotive accessories, he became the “Henry Ford of the Radio,” pioneering the sale of millions of high quality, low cost home radios.  Additionally, he founded and operated the most powerful radio station in America ("The Nation's Station"), manufactured and sold unique refrigerators and other home appliances, and started aircraft and car companies. He owned the Cincinnati Reds and Crosley Field, taking the team to two World Series.  Owning one of the most successful Depression Era business conglomerates, he kept thousands of people employed and improved the quality of life for millions more who purchased his products.  During World War II he manufactured innovative, highly effective anti-aircraft shells and designed an alternative to the Jeep.  After the war he perfected his invention of the first low-cost, energy efficient compact car and marketed Crosleys “to the masses - not the classes.” 
 
Powel Crosley was an inventor, innovator, manufacturer, and sales wizard who will forever be remembered as hard working, passionate, and generous to his workers and those less fortunate in his community.
 
Don’t miss this overview of one of America’s most intriguing entrepreneurs and “car guys.”
 
As always, the camaraderie and optional dinner (order off the menu with separate checks) starts at 6:00 p.m., the program is 7:15 – 8:15 p.m., and the club business meeting is 8:15 – 9:00 p.m.  Those who come for the program need not stay for the meeting.
 
You need not RSVP and of course admission is free.

PS – As Activities Director for the Packard Club, it is my job to promote participation at our programs.  I never have trouble characterizing our speakers as among the most knowledgeable, best presenters among those in their respective fields.  It's true.  But I feel funny promoting a presentation that I am a part of.  Bill and I pledge to do everything we can to meet the high standards our club has set for our monthly programs and hope that you can make it next Monday.

Here is the engine compartment. The Homelite 55 really makes for a great driver and you can brag you have a Big Block Crosley 59CI up from 44CI. With header it probably puts out 60hp + you will feel the difference.

HI,    Still searching for ANY information on my Supersports. Thanks!

The serial number might help track down it's history but it is a long shot. Otherwise all Super Sports look pretty much the same at one time or another in their life.

Hi Dave,
          Are you saying you want me to write about my addiction to Crosley?

Re: Still Looking For Any History on My 1951 Supersports

Spock Arnold
 

No Steve... I know about that.. What I thought might help with your hunt would be the history you have with this particular car.   Where it came from, who you bought it from, color features, etc.

Re: Still Looking For Any History on My 1951 Supersports

Great,
          I purchased in Oct 2018 near Richmond Va from Robert Lewis. Before that it was near Raleigh North Carolina where a gentleman had listed it on Ebay  a couple times (Thanks Fred Syrdal for the photos he saved from Ebay and was also featured on the Barnfinds column May 2018) for his father in law. After speaking to him his father in law purchased it one morning at 5 am from a man in Vermont and no past history. The only history back of that is that it was last titled in 1962 in Indiana by Robert Christian from Clayton Indiana. It is very original car (which I Love) and Very surprised to see the HC stamped engine and the spot on the firewall for the Vitane tank! I then knew I had a factory  Vitameter car.    Thanks for any help!  I know I'm crazy for history.
