  1. John, It is a 1950, the FOR was made from 1950 to the end of Crosley production in 1952 with around 500 made. There were many implements available for the FOR, from a bottom plow, sickle bar, snow blade on the front, skis on the front tires, hay rake to a mower and more. The dump bed on the back is hydraulically operated. As far as 4WD, yes it is... It has dual rear wheels... LOL When you were doing farm work you would put the outer wheels on, usually lug tires and you had 4WD. As far as the popularity of the FOR, I think the sales speak to that as there were not very many made.
  2. Paul, Yes that is a PTO, for both a front and rear attachment. Not sure on the rear end, but the transmission is a t-92. Thanks for asking.
  3. Now that the 1950 Crosley Super Hotshot has found a new home, it is time to start on the 1950 Crosley Farm O Road (FOR). I purchased this vehicle about 2 years ago. It was located in South Carolina and I email the owner several times to get pictures and information, but my wife said the car was too far away and would cost too much to go to get it. Several weeks later a friend of mine was going to Pigeon Forge TN for a car show and I jokingly told him he could go pick up the FOR for me and put it in the bed of his pickup truck. He called me when he got down there and asked if I was serious about buying the FOR and I said two things needed to happen, one I had to get my wife to agree and I had to get the owner to agree to my price. Wife begrudgingly said go for it and after several emails and phone calls a price was agreed upon and now I had to get my friend and the owner together as the owner was out of town. Long story short, got them together and my friends loaded the FOR in the back of their pickup and headed home with it. But not before they called me and said it looked like a piece of junk! I said I knew what it looked like and it was not a problem. As they were heading up the highway a Sherriff pulled them over and told them that a strap was dragging on the road, but the main reason he stop them was to ask, "What the hell is that thing in the bed of his truck?" LOL The next day they arrived home and we unloaded it onto my trailer and I brought it to my shop. Here are some pictures of it as I received it.
  4. It was in the flea market and it was sold this afternoon. The car is going to Iowa to a longtime Crosley collector. He actually took it for its maiden trip around the fairground
  5. At the Crosley club national meeting in Wauseon Oh. Nice and warm.
  6. I will be there with a lot of used parts! And a 1950 Crosley Super Hotshot for sale.
  7. Keiser, Keen eye there, Keiser... I think it was just the way they got put on, or back on after the restoration. Like you have noted they are installed both ways and it is not know which is correct. The front and the rear bumpers are the same.
  8. Elizabethtown PA, by the area code on the phone # Near Harrisburg and Hershey
  9. Up for sale today is a 1950 Crosley Super Hotshot roadster. It has been restored over the last several years and has some work yet to do. It is running and have drove it around the lot and it seems to run good. The car is rare with very few built. It is believed that this is a Super hotshot, having the newer version of the folding top but not having full doors, the car should have the leatherette around the cockpit instead of the rubber moulding of the Hotshots. For more details on the car check out the restoration thread on this site, "The resurrection of a 1950 Crosley Hotshot" It still need the seats and upholstery work done (I have the seat frames), top, and parking lights and brake lights, gas tank cleaned and it need a filler tube, and several other things to finish it up. Would be a perfect first car for someone. Won't break the bank... $6995.00 PM me with questions or leave a note here. Located in Southwestern PA
  10. Hooked up the water pump coupler and installed the horn over the last couple of days. Had to change out the generator as the pulley width was way to wide. Fired it up and let it run for about 20-25 minutes and it sounds pretty good. Also took it around the lot a few more times, sounds and drives good. Hope to fine tune a few things before it goes to Wauseon OH for the National meet to be sold, but I will sell it before I go if someone is interested. $6995.00 Western PA
  11. Mark the time on your calendar, 4:45, it moves under its own power. Took it for a drive around the lot. Got it in all gears and so far so good!
  12. Hello Bernie, Haven't heard from you in a few weeks and was wondering if you have been able to move the Renault on to someone else yet. Hope everything is good with you. Thanks, Dale
  13. New decal installed and on the car. Gives the engine compartment that finished look.
  14. 20 minutes later and fresh out of the oven. Waiting for it to cool then a new decal and back on the car.
  15. It's the little things that take all the time... Well, in this case the little things on the little car. Today was the day to refinish the air cleaner, off the car and into the media blaster then to powder coat. As I type this it is baking at 400 degrees.
  16. Non Crosley antiques. 1957 Ford Skyliner, 1977 Corvette, 1958 Continental convertible and 1973 MG Midget.
  17. More, 1950 Farm O Road, 1951 Convertible. On the list to be restored.
  18. More of my Crosley's 1949 Hotshot and 1952 Supersports, 1950 Pickup tow truck, 1951 Super Station wagon(my first antique, bought in 1978)
  19. I figured you would want to see some updated pictures. Not much new, wiring, switches, hoses, etc. Still a few things to do to it before it is ready for the road. If you are interested in it, the car is for sale. I bought it with the intentions of restoring it and selling to someone that would like a antique that wouldn't break the bank but be a fun car to take to car shows and local cruises. As you can see it is not quite complete, but far enough along to get you into the hobby quickly and most parts that it does need are readily available through several Crosley parts vendors. I do have the seat frames and a few other odds and ends for the car not shown. If you have any questions feel free to post here or send me an IM. The price is $6995.00 at this stage of restoration.
  20. Lots of things have been going on since I last posted. Work has been good and I have been busy with that. With kids and family I have been keeping busy and having a good time. But I have gotten a few things done on the Super Hotshot. I have most of the wiring harness finish, with the exception of the headlight and parking/taillight connections and two wires for the generator. I got a new headlight switch and dimmer switch, new spark plug wires and fuel hose. I hooked up the oil pressure gauge and got the main cables for the starter and battery. I have put fluid in the master cylinder and started to bleed the brakes. AND the big thing today was... I started it for the first time with the ignition switch. After a few minor glitches, fuel pump top put on wrong, sucking fuel away from the carb instead of towards it. Throttle was on backwards so it started at full throttle. It now runs and starts with ease. Now to finish bleeding the brakes, put radiator hoses on it and fill with fluid and put a seat in it and go for a ride...
  21. Peter, Seems like you have upset many with the work you are doing. But it is mostly the same people that when a new person ask a question or post something that they don't like they shoot him down and make him unwelcome... Some people need to learn kindness and be patient. I, for one, will wait and see how this new update shakes out and then adjust to the changes. Things change people!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank You Peter, and anyone else working on the changes.
  22. Was laying in bed the other night and thought about the Fall Hershey meet and wondered if I sent in my renewal. I asked the wife and she said she hadn't done it yet. It is ready to mail today, so I thought I would remind everyone that "FALL MEET HERSHEY FLEA MARKET RENEWALS ARE DUE BY FEBRUARY 17, 2016!!!!" Thought this post would be better in the general posting area. Dale
  23. Maybe you could contact Nationals, or Steve M and they could possibly find out who it was presented to? Just a thought. Dale
