Reminder from: Crosley Yahoo! Group Title: Tuesday, November 18, 1947: Crosley Motors introduces the 1948 CC models. Date: Sunday November 18, 2012 Time: 12:00 am - 12:00 am Location: CROSLEY CAR OWNERS CLUB (CCOC) - 4526 29th Avenue, Kenosha, Wisconsin 53140-3044, (262) 652-3034 Notes: New models include a sports-utility vehicle (this is believed to be the first use of that term) and a panel-delivery van based on the new Crosley all-steel station wagon (most other contemporary station wagons are largely wood-bodied) and Crosley will be the world's largest producer of station wagons in 1948. Sport Convertible production will rise from the twelve cars built in 1946 to 4005 units in the 1947 model year. Crosley's total 1948 production will be 27,707 cars and trucks, and the immensely-popular Crosley station wagon will itself total 23,489 of that number. It will be Crosley Motors' best year by far, but problems with the COBRA engine are already beginning to surface. Get reminders on your mobile, Yahoo! Messenger, and email.
