    FOR SALE - 1948 CROSLEY CONVERTIBLE - RUNNING EARLY 1950'S ERA CUSTOMIZED CAR, VERY SOLID

    I just can't get into finishing this project. It has dragged on for years and the reality is, if I did finish it, I would never drive it and it would sit in the garage taking up space. It looks cute, but where I live I need a larger 50's era car for long distance travel to shows, something we can't do with the Crosley. So, we are selling this and will finish a 56 Dodge we have instead.

    This 48 Crosley convertible runs ( off of a gas can - needs a new gas tank ), is very solid, and was customized sometime in the early 1950's judging by the original lead in the body that we saw when all the paint was stripped off. All we have had done is sand the body down to metal, smooth it out and fix dings and dents from 50 plus years of storage. There is a handmade convertible top frame that goes with the car but we were not going to use it. What you see is what you get.

    I have the custom front and rear chrome bumpers that came back from the plating shop ( Knox Custom Chrome ) and they are wrapped up in the garage and go with the car, along with bumper brackets, the windshield center post and a few other odds and ends.

    The body shop that has been working on it slowly over the past year painted it in a light ivory. All you have to do is finish the interior and assemble the few trim bits. I would put new tires on ( still has 50 year old tires ) and go over it mechanically. It is not as good a paint job as I hoped - the original people working on it left the shop and they never bothered to tell me.

    Email if you have questions. We have the original, open title, from the early 1950's plus a bill of sale if you buy it.
