Crosley was a small independent car maker that produced compact cars from 1939 till 1952 and was based out of Cincinnati Ohio and was founded by the owner of the Cincinnati Reds. Offering a variety of body styles including sedans, convertibles, pickups, wagons, and vans, all of Crosley's cars were very simple with solid axles, body on frame construction, 80in wheelbases, leaf springs, and engines smaller than 1 liter. Crosley's first car was introduced in April of 1939 and the little roadster was sold for just $325. The outbreak of WW2 stopped car production and the company found itself manufacturing gun turrets for B-24 bombers. Surprisingly, Crosley hit the ground running after the end of the war and was the first American production car offered with four wheel disc brakes as well as the first production overhead cam engine.

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this unique piece of American automotive history for your consideration. This little maroon 1949 Station Wagon is in remarkably nice condition for its age and stature. The paint quality is quite nice overall and the body is generally very nice. The body is free of of rot and large damages but has a fair amount of small imperfections and marks. Chrome trim is nice overall and all pieces are intact. Body features are minimal but include a chrome hood ornament, white painted steel wheels with chrome caps, and wood panel decals. The interior is very nice and features clean brown seats with good padding, a nice painted dashboard with original radio and controls, sliding windows, and an original white steering wheel. The rest of the interior seems original and intact. Car also has the original jack stand.

These little cars are super unique, and many influential people such as Dwight Eisenhower, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Nelson Rockefeller were all noteable owner. It will be quite hard to find such another example that is this nice. These little Crosley's aren't well known but sure are A Fine Car.
