1952 CROSLEY HOT SHOT SUPER SPORT CONVERTIBLE - RESTORED

Recommended Posts

Probably the rarest of all Crosley cars.  This is 1 of only 358 Crosley Hot Shot Super Sports made in 1952, the last year of Crosley production.  Not many are left. The Revs auto museum here in Naples shows how the Collier family got into cars and racing by using one of these to win the early AACA races at Sebring. 
 

This is an older lovingly done restoration by an elderly Crosley Club member who has passed.  I bought the car from the estate to add to our collection as I have always wanted one and this one was completely restored from top to bottom.   I have not driven it more than a mile and it has  just ended up sitting in our garage.   I was thinking my wife would enjoy driving it since she has an affinity for small cars ( she has a Metropolitan Convertible and Nissan Figaro ) but like me, the older she gets the less she wants to drive a manual transmission. So again the car just sits.

 
As the car was restored a dozen or so years ago, it still shows very nicely but it is not 100%.  There are a couple of very small paint chips on the front hood panel and some areas of chrome that are starting to age, but they are too small to show up in photos.  The car could use a good detail and cleaning but I haven't noticed anything other than that.  All the fluids have been flushed and the car tuned up since I obtained it plus new tires in the last year and as I said it just sits.  It unfortunately sat from the prior owner and now it is just sitting with us which is why we are considering parting with it.    I have sent the car to a body shop I use to have the entire car detailed and polished.  Yes, I probably could have done it myself but it is still 90 degrees and humid here in S. Florida and I am too old to deal with that. 
 
You can see by the last picture on the page, we are cramped.  In addition to 4 cars in our two car garage, we have storage units with the rest of the 12 cars so no, we do not want anything in trade at all. Having some extra room to open a car door is actually the goal here. 
 
As this is a 67 year old car, it is being sold as is , where is with no warranties.   If you are interested, we are open to reasonable offers. $ 19,995 Obo.
 
problem with site is not allowing any of the photos to load - if you are interested just email me and I can send you the photos directly.
