    A Crosley engine is one of three things for sale - a gas-powered plate compactor, a gas-powered log splitter, and a Crosley engine. The ad says $300 but doesn't say whether that's what they want for all three or if each item is $300

    Being as you ain't from around these parts we will cut you a little slack;

    The CORRECT pronunciation is Jawja.

    Back around 1970 I bought a ‘60 Lark Regal 4 Door Wagon in SE Portland. It was parked near a normal sized detached double car garage, and the guy said something about owning Crosleys. He opened the door and there were EIGHT of them in that garage!

    Not a Crosley - Anyone got a thing for Sunbeam Alpines - I do: https://erepairables.com/salvage-car...r/vid-29644387

    Current bid is $500. There is another five days till proxy bids.


    EDIT: Hey, that IS a Sunbeam isn't it - the same car that the Tiger is based on. They called it an Austin on their website. I donno, I've never looked, maybe Austin owns Sunbeam or something.

    At least they let you know that a $600 bid will cost you $1187 with fees, but without taxes and transportation.

    Didn't you say you are a Kaiser man too?


    Salvage Kais Manhattan at erepairables (Rough) looks like it has a BIN of $900. There are currently no bids. The auction is running and has about two days and sixteen hours left. The vehicle is in a lot in San Martin, CA and can be inspected in person or you can hire someone to go over there, inspect it and then tell you what they think.

    Erepairables auction is currently running on a '58 Ford Ranchero in L.A. The current bid is $2,500 and the auction runs another 40 hours.

    No major damage, normal wear and tear and a few small missing bits.

    Last model year of Crosley production was 1952. The car in the photo appears to be a 1949. Not to mention, Crosley never labeled a car a 'Metropolitan'

    ATTENTION BLUE WALLABY !!! - i think this is one that you're going to be interested in. It's in San Martin, CA - about a 6 hour trip with a hauler in moderate traffic from the shipper in Long Beach. The auction date hasn't been announced yet but I'm in their alert system.

    https://erepairables.com/salvage-car...e/vid-29538955

    AND ESPECIALLY THIS ONE BECAUSE THE AUCTION IS ALREADY RUNNING: - As of this posting, there are less than 40 hours left in this auction. The car is only a 90-minute hall from the shipper.

    Mike Sal,

    I'm looking at a few more places for you. Do you know how to cut and paste? If so, open notebook and then go down through those posts of mine and copy and paste all of those links into notebook, give the file a name and save it. Then you can peruse it when you have time. Once I finish these, and I've posted as many links there as I can, finish copying and pasting those links and then delete your thread. That way, folks in here won't be grumbling about it. It looks like with those links you should be able to get a pretty good start on the Crosley hobby. One thing is for certain, compared to other marques, it looks like getting into the Crosley hobby is relatively inexpensive. If you've got any teenage kids, a Crosley might be a good way to introduce them to old car conservationism. Taking a break. I'll post some more links by and by.

    Gary,

    Yeah, they are not cheap and they don't make any bones about it. However, they are wired into virtually everything in the country and sometimes they have incredible deals. I'm certain there was a Crosley wagon at erepairables just about two weeks ago. It was from San Antonio or Houston and they listed "water damage" as the reason it was there. It was a very nicely restored example. So nice, that even after it had apparently had water about 30 inches deep around it, it still looked incredible. So, what'a a little water in a car that simple to tear down, clean, neutralize and put back together compared to so many others? Nothing really, compared to the mess the water makes with modern cars that have everything controlled by computers that, once wet, are useless and are so expensive that the cars are totalled when they are actually very nice.

    Mr. Bumpkinvilledano, thank you very much for helping me to learn the correct pronunciation of Jawja. I might have been able to wing it better if my hearing was better, so I wasn't always mis-hearing how folks pronounce stuff.

    Does anyone like International Pickup Trucks?

    Erepairables has it because some insurance company totaled it due to hail damage. Hail damage?!!! Give me a break, how hard are a few dozen/hundred/thousand little pings to fix compared to Stude rot? Piece of cake! The sale date has not-yet been set for this truck. Register for free and sign up for the interest list for any vehicle you're looking at. They'll send you an email when they announce the dates of the auctions.

    Mike Sal,

    Yesterday, FB stopped searching when I crossed the Mississippi, and refused to return any results. So, I'd signed off and used a couple other search engines to go over the country. This morning, I went back onto FB and started again on the east side of the Mississippi and it started returning results. I managed to get what's below before it crapped out again. I've still got to do Melbourne and Jacksonville, FL, and then all of the original 13 colonies, but I'll have to wait and see how long it takes for the search function to begin working again. I dunno, maybe there is some dweeb at FB that sits there and times how long someone searches, and when that person feels the person searching has been doing it too long, he or she turns off the software's ability to report search results.

    I don't know how many of the results below are duplicates. I tried to ignore anything I'd recognized from one of the searches yesterday, but it's possible some stuff got duped anyway.

    Brings back memories for me! I also had an International that got 'written off' from hail damage by my insurance company in 1981, except I kept the truck. A few years ago when the subject came up, one of the engineers at work mentioned his dad's old International workhorse on the farm had many scrapes and dents all over it, which only added to its character. Then he made the comment that I got PAID to add character to my old International!!

    There was a few years ago in Tucson a 1939 Crosley 2 door that was the first year with 2 cylinder engine. Car looked complete including the side lights. They wanted $3500. I don't know if it stayed in the Tucson area but it was a neat little car.

    thanks for all the leads. I found a guy thru a Crosley FB page that is trying to liquidate his dad's big collection & has a convertible that I'm going to go look at.....not a station wagon, but maybe a convertible could be fun.

    My wife keeps reminding me that getting another car will distract me from working on the ones I already have that aren't finished......

    Look for one of these, and you get the best of both worlds: https://forums.aaca.org/topic/315324...ports-utility/

    I suspect a Sports Utility is VERY rare!!

    The people I'm going to see this weekend have been collecting all things Crosley since 1974. I figure even if we don't strike a deal on a car, just being able to absorb some of their knowledge & maybe buy some parts will well worth the trip. I've always been a fan of Powell Crosley. You should read his history sometime.

    Crosleys are fun- my dad and his buddy spent last winter restoring a 1949 Sedan Delivery, and this fall picked up a Farm-O-Road that's waiting in the wings for restoration.

    I'd always known there had been a Crosley car. A fellow that ran a filling station in my home town bought one when I was maybe five or six and he still had it when I went into the military in '75. I never knew though, until I started running the scans to locate those sites for you that Crosley was practically a household name and is into appliances, radios, phones, you-name-it, and that old Crosley crap - and there's a lot of it - is collectible.

    Mike-

    I had a '51 wagon for a few years and loved it, but when I got my Studebaker wagon it ended up being surplus and I didn't have a place to keep it inside, so I needed to move it on. I would say join the national club. Great group. Although the West Coast Crosley Club is worth joining as well. I did the design on their magazine for a few years.

    If you want to actually drive the car - which I did- I would also recommend a 50-52 wagon with the hydraulic drum brakes. The cable brakes are a pain to keep in adjustment, and aren't so hot at stopping the car and the disc brakes on the '49 model are hard to get parts for and are difficult to deal with in a different way. If I'm ever in the position to have enough inside storage, I'd love another Crosley wagon. It was a really fun car to tool around town in and go get ice cream and all that stuff.

    Ya, the biggest reason I am a Crosley fan is the story of Powell Crosley....quite a guy. Reading his biography is inspiring. Just think, you can thank him for having those shelves on the inside of your refridgerator's door (called "shelve-a-door").

    I don't know how their dealer network was arranged but a few memories of my youth is recalling a couple new Crosley's parked at a filling station about a mile or so from my house and the sign on the station saying Crosley Dealer and Service. I know they sold them.

    I had an older neighbor who owned a Crosley table radio from the early 1950's. Crosley radios were very popular at one time, and I believe Powel Crosley owned a radio station in Cincinnati before the war.
