CROSSLEY HOT SHOT Purchased this out of an Estate with other Crosley vehicles to acquire several I wish to keep and this car is surplus to my needs. True miles unknown-Speedo indicates 15K. I would best describe it as a “amateur restoration” which was probably done 20-25 years ago. There is some evidence of body filler in the car but it is not breaking out etc. The frame and undercarriage are solid. The Car had been tagged titled and registered thru 2010 and has a clear title. Vehicle starts and runs, stops and can be “yard driven ” in it’s present form. I’d certainly service it and change out fluids-hoses etc. before putting it back on the road. It is equipped with a brake proportioning valve, AM radio, Grant Style Steering Wheel, and radial tires. The former owner fabricated a windshield which was patterned after a Jag XK 120 and fitted custom upholstery. There are no top irons for the car. I was told the previous owner had this car in his collection for over 30 years. Car is located 20 miles west of Washington D.C. near Manassas Va. Please call with questions to Nick @ 703-966-8422. Buyer has 7 days to pay for car and 14 days from conclusion of sale to remove car.

Comment: An interesting car, very light, would be a fun runabout if you had a nice summer. They did race these…….
