      Here's the verbatim eBay description (mistakes and all) on this very
      nice CD Super Station Wagon. Photos are in our CCOC files.


      Motoexotica is now offering very rare Crosley Wagon microcar coming
      from the dry state of Oklahoma. This car comes with a 4 cylinder, 3
      speed manual transmission, and a lot of style. Isn't it time to own
      something that will get the attention it deserves. This car is
      Crosley's deluxe model it is a little bigger with more room. Also
      this model is the one with all the chrome. As well as the bigger 4
      cylinder engine. This car is in good condition The blue and white
      color combo looks great. There is only A few scratches bigger then an
      inch. The paint is in very good condition and shows well. The
      original interior has no rips or tears, but does have a few marks
      which would probably wipe off with a little scrubbing. The chrome on
      this car is in great shape. The headliner is in good shape, just a
      few spots where it is starting to sag just a little. This car runs
      and drives very well. The clutch and steering are tight and the 3
      speed shifts smooth. The Mileage reads 7,423 and is believed to be
      original as there is a service tag inside the drivers door and a
      state inspection showing mileage under 10,000 miles.
      Here is a little history on the Crosley automobile and how it got
      started. The Crosley is an automobile manufactured by the Crosley
      Corporation and later by Crosley Motors Incorporated in the United
      States from 1939 to 1952. (It should not be confused with the Crosley
      made by Crosley Motors of Manchester, England] Industrialist Powel
      Crosley Jr. of Cincinnati, Ohio, owner of a broadcasting company and
      the Cincinnati Reds baseball team, had ambitious plans to build a
      compact car and developed assembly plants at Richmond, Indiana, and
      Marion, Indiana. In May, 1939, the first car was shown at the
      Indianapolis Speedway. It was a two-door convertible that weighed
      under 1000 lb (450 kg) and sold for $250. It wasn't an instant
      success, but in 1941 more body styles were introduced

      The chassis had an 80-inch (203 cm) wheelbase, half elliptic springs
      with beam axle in front and quarter elliptics in the rear. The power
      came from a two-cylinder Waukesha air-cooled engine that had the fan
      as a part of the flywheel. The engine was connected with a three-
      speed transmission and then directly via a torque tube to the rear
      axle, thus eliminating the need for joints. In 1941 the body styles
      available were expanded to include two- and four-passenger
      convertibles, During World War II, the Crosley became attractive
      because of gasoline rationing and the good mileage (50 miles per U.S.
      gallon, 5 L/100 km). Crosley was the last company to cease production
      of civilian vehicles in 1942, partly to allow car buyers the
      opportunity to purchase as many Crosleys as possible to aid in fuel
      rationing, and partly because the War Production Board needed some
      time to determine a useful purpose for Crosley's small factories. GET
      OUT AND DRIVE!
