    1949 Crosley Restoration

    Hello everyone Sorry for the inactivity but nothing has happened recently as far as the car restoration goes. Life has gotten in the way of getting the car running. Lots more would be done if the car wasn’t 40 minutes away from my home but I need something to post so let me show off the before and after pictures of the Mustang seats I pulled out of the car that I hopefully will sell this weekend! The previous owner gave me the original seats for free so now I have something to restore I’ll also include pictures of those too. More will happen soon I promise!

    1949 Crosley Restoration

    My plan is to rebuild and restore a spare transmission then it’s just one less thing I have to do later. I planning on talking to my dad to see if we could possibly join the Crosley Club. It’s probably a good idea so I can meet some people in the Wisconsin area with Crosley’s and so I can use the message board. I would love to drive your Farm O Road problem is I haven’t driven any car! So maybe you could drive this time.

    Thank you! I thought that the gear looked incorrect because of how cheap it was made. It was the only part in/on the transmission that had pitting and chipping on it. I’ll make sure to take that off tonight!

    Look at this weld! I don’t think they came from the factory like this! I’ll take pictures of the inside of the plate tomorrow and I’ll also show pictures inside transmission.

    This is the back plate I was referring to. Under the layer of grease you can see the weld, Please check the after pictures to get a better idea.

    1949 Crosley Restoration

    I apologize, I said I wasn’t going to do any restoration work until late May since my car is at my friends barn but I brought home a transmission with the purchase of the car and I felt like doing some sort of car work today. I did not take the transmission fully a part mainly because I probably wouldn’t get it back together. When I opened the top I found that there was gear lube and all the gears were in place and not damaged. I found some play in shafts but nothing serious. I did not drain the transmission lube because I dont want the gears to rust so didn’t get the opportunity to check for metal flakes in the lube. I then proceeded to take off the back plate of the transmission off to check the what the backside looked like. None of the shafts looked rusted or pitted but I found that someone took the back plate and welded a bearing to it (please look at pictures below to understand). My friend thought it was cause someone previously used the trans for garden tractor. Let me know your thoughts and opinions? With that being said the stick shift was cut to a very short length making me think someone wanted to make a midget racer. Then I checked the front side plate and tried to take the bolts off but the bolts were welded to the plate. I’ll figure out some way to get those bolts out soon. But I got the transmission cleaned and I’m very happy with what I’ve found I think it has potential to go in the car since the transmission in the car is stuck in gear. I also have one other transmission if they’re both are bad so I’m covered! I’m planning on painting the housing the original grey tomorrow when I get home from school. Stay tuned more pictures will be up tomorrow night! One more thing before pictures! I have two starters and a generator for sale if anyone is interested they are most definitely a project! If someone one is interested I’ll take $25 on one starter and $30 on a generator plus shipping. I think these are fair prices considering I recently sold a set of peddles for $10 and a set of closed car door handles for $15. These are listed locally also so please claim one, two or all three if your interested! All money I make off of spare parts goes back into the car not into my parents of my pockets! I’ll keep listing items on here as the restoration progresses and I am willing to deliver at Crosley nationals. Now to the pictures!

    1949 Crosley Restoration

    We also met in Hershey at the Crosley Club tent. My father and I are planning on attending nationals currently we need a radio, seats, top bows and a new windshield and that’s just from evaluating the car from the outside. By the time I start digging in to the car that list will for surely get longer. I’m excited for the show and too meet again!

    1949 Crosley Restoration

    Yes, I do! My car looks like a survivor but someone painted it a long time ago. We have not done any major restoration work to the car except put a new top on the car and new interior, right now we are just choosing to drive the car. Currently it has a gas leak because of a cheap reproduction part we put on last year.

    Car in 1978
  12. Hello First off I’ll talk about myself so everyone gets to know me before I start discussing the car. My name is Brandon I’m 16 years old and I’ve been in the car hobby since I was 12. I live in Waukesha Wisconsin which is just outside of Milwaukee. Currently I have two cars a 1930 Model A Sport Coupe that my parents bought for me when I was 13 and a 1949 Crosley Hotshot which I picked up yesterday. I’m very involved in the car hobby and continue to get more and more involved everyday. I’ve host a Car Show at an Alzheimer's Nursing Home every year for the past 3 years. I’ll include a link to my website if anyone is interested. I’m not in the AACA but I am in the CCCA, Horseless Carriage Club and Model T club of Milwaukee. I plan on joining the AACA when my car is finished. http://kenhollubmemorialcarshow.com/ Now on to the car! My car is a 1949 Crosley Hotshot it has been sitting in a barn since 1978. I heard about it at a CCCA Christmas dinner in November and I went to go see it in December. It was such a good car being rust free and such a good price I couldn’t help myself but to purchase it. I picked up the car yesterday and planning on doing a complete restoration on the car. I’ll include pictures below of the car getting pulled out of the barn and before it went in the barn in 1978. I will have parts for the car I would consider selling in the future so stay tuned! The restoration and more pictures of the car will be posted in late May early June but until then I will be answering any questions people have on the car.
