      One of the rarest and certainly one of the prettiest microcars, the
      Crosley Skorpion was built by John Wills and was designed by Ralph
      Roberts who was a well known automotive designer with LeBaron in the
      1930's. Wills & Roberts met in late '42. Wills was just out of the
      Army Air Corps, and wanted to start a war production company in the
      new field of plastics. He met Roberts at a show he put together in
      Pasadena to extol the virtues of this new medium. While the show was
      a flop, the two decided that day to go into business. Roberts had
      been very interested in making a plastic car, and although they were
      busy with government contracts. After the war it was time to focus
      on building the car project that Roberts had been dreaming about. As
      Wills & Roberts employed a lot of veterans, they listened to their
      wants. they were told by the GIs that they wanted " a little house
      with a little family, a little car, and maybe a little trailer".
      They decided to base their car on the Crosley chassis, as it was
      small , reliable, and affordable. After an attempt at a rear engine
      car called the Wasp, powered by surplus Indian motorcycle engines,
      they decided to go with the standard Crosley chassis with Robert's
      pretty sports car design. The Skorpion was introduced to great
      interest and was even featured on the cover of Motor Trend in
      April '52. They built some cars in house, and sold approximately 50
      kit bodies. It is believed that fewer than thirty were ever
      assembled, and very few survive today. The car on offer is a very
      nice fully restored example. Beautifully finished in red with red
      and white interior, this is likely the best Skorpion on the planet.
      The engine was recently rebuilt, and features ultra rare Braje
      finned intake manifold and four port header. A maker of high
      performance parts for Crosleys and Austins, Braje vintage speed
      equipment is impossible to find today. The car also comes with a lot
      of correspondence between the previous owner and John Wills, who
      only passed away recently. This is a fabulous car, and not only
      would this be the hit of any car show, it the perfect addition to
      any eclectic automobile collection. Auction Terms Bid with
