      <<<<<<<<<<<<<YOU WROTE
      Lou,
      Thanks for the location of the serial number plate, it took me a while to figure out where you ment, then there it was. My plate is atached with tiny brass rivets but it was in the location you specified. Now I have a serial number but don't know how to read it, the number is 390-31736 , what year would that make it ?
      Thanks
      Paul Smith

      I hope you don't mind me rather than Lou answering.�
      You have a 1941.� The model is known as a CA.�

      �
      I found this an interesting site although the prices given are outdated by 50% or more.� It claims that during the 1939-42 production years 5700 cars were sold by Crosley.� I think its fair to extrapolate that Pauls car may be�and likly is the 1736th car made in 1941.� I personally was surprised at the the production total and suspect that less than 10% and possibly as little as 5% still exist.�
      I wonder it there would be interest here to have a pre war registry to year, model number and style.� It would be the beginning of a National and International effort to document these very rare automobiles.�
      I would defer to Lou on setting it up on the site but I suspect he would endorse the effort.� The idea of a registry is to simply document cars for the common knowledge base.� No personal information is involved and thus no threat exists to the owner nor to the owner's or car's location.� It might be nice to list a state upon registry but that could only be updated by a subsequent owner who moves the car out of state.� Still once registered the listing serves to document a car and its condition on a particular date.�
      �
      I encourage input to the idea and perhaps it could be expanded to the post war years as well.� What say you?
