1950 Crosley Super Station Wagon - $9,995

Fun & peppy micro-wagon is mechanically sound and ready for cruising. With just 43,000 miles on the odometer, this Super wagon is finished in custom red and yellow, with cream colored vinyl interior. The rear compartment is ready for storage; there's also a frame that can be upholstered and installed to create a back seat for additional passengers (our Motorland Service Center can do the work). There is also a period-style roof rack on the top of the wagon. The car has a few modern & after-market upgrades (common the bare-bones Crosleys): a modern sound system, extra tail lights, a custom Crosley steering wheel, and a custom shifter knob. There are also some Crosley dealer accessories, including the pinwheel on the front and eyebrows over the headlights. This car is a real head turner and a blast to drive. Here's some history about this American classic: Crosley was a small, independent American manufacturer of subcompact cars, bordering on microcars. At first called the Crosley Corporation and later Crosley Motors Incorporated, the Cincinnati, Ohio, firm was active from 1939 to 1952, interrupted by World War II production. Their station wagons were the most popular model, but also offered were sedans, pickups, convertibles, a sports car, and even a tiny jeep-like vehicle. Crosley introduced several "firsts" in American automotive history, including the first affordable, mass-market car with an overhead camshaft engine in 1946; the first use of the term 'Sport(s-) Utility' in 1947, for a 1948 model year convertible wagon; and the first American cars to be fitted with 4-wheel caliper type disc brakes, as well as America's first post-war sports car, the Hotshot, in the 1949 model year. All of Crosley's models were lightweight (1,100 to 1,400 pounds (500 to 640 kilograms)) body-on-frame cars with rigid axles front and rear, and engines with less than 1 litre (61 cubic inches) displacement. Powel Crosley Jr. made his fortune in the automotive parts and accessories business, before diversifying into manufacturing other consumer products and Crosley automobiles in the 1920s and 1930s. In 1925 his company became the largest manufacturer of radios in the world. The financial success of his manufacturing and radio broadcasting businesses provided the funds for Crosley to pursue his lifelong interest in manufacturing automobiles. He introduced the first Crosley compact car in 1939. During World War II the Crosley company discontinued civilian automobile manufacturing and begin production of war-time materials, including development of experimental vehicles. In 1946 Crosley resumed production of compact and subcompact vehicles at its facility in Marion, Indiana, in addition to introducing new models and innovations to its offerings. After gas rationing was discontinued and the Big Three car makers began producing larger cars, consumer interest in Crosley's compact cars declined. The last Crosley car rolled off the assembly line on July 3, 1952, and the company focused on its other, more successful business ventures
