I still have a flame thrower system I made from a Model T Mag.But
Instead of the Ka-Boom I would get five foot blue flames out the back
of my 63 Fairlane sports coupe. Kinda dicey because the gas cap was
back there also.

While I don't "see" the ash catch, if it is round with a sliding top
it is a common after market item of the era. My 1950 MG TD came so
equipped and I think one of my 1950 Jeepsters had the same. There
are all manner of after market items which found there way upon these
cars. Some of my favorites are sun visors, head lite visors, wind
deflectors attached to wind wings to inwardly deflect the passing
air, static strips, applied "white walls", real and dummy spot lights
and of course the home made addenda of a spark plug in the tail
pipe. Those who did so would shut off the ignition to load the
exhaust with gas fumes and on a separate circuit power up the spark
plug....KahBOOOM...a real attention grabber! I got my "treat" in
Georgia 15 or so years ago.

That IS interesting as I have never seen a Crosley with a factory cigar lighter. I would almost guess the ash catch had a magnet on the back or awfully tiny hooks.Regards,

Thanks, Steve. My '48
wagon had a Crosley
accessory chrome ashtray
mounted below the dash when
I got it in 1979, and I
removed it and pitched it.
I'm sorry I did that now,
as it could have held coins
or spare fuses and the like.
