    I'm looking for a pick up. Actually, it's a friend that is. If you know of a good solid project, let me know. Does not need running gear.

    There is a guy and his wife who hangs out at our car club in the winter every week who has an awesome Crosley wagon build, with I think a V6 Chevy in it. Just a spectacular car, but I have no pictures.

    He's an old car guy that some of you might have heard of. His name is Dick.

    I love Crosleys! Always wanted a sedan one or a wagon. Preferably the same body style you've got. Great car! Put it on a K5 Blazer chassis!

    Dad's cut-down wagon was used mostly around the farm for fixing fence and stuff. The engine came out of an old military generator. It ran awesome! It could have used more gears, but seemed to really go if you kept it wound up.

    A little bit of diesel torque and the right gears would go a long way in a little tin can like that.

    Dad's Crsoley project started with this old Air Force generator I bought for $25. The Crosley engine inside ran, se we pulled it and put it in the little wagon pictured above.

    When I think of "a bunch" of Crosleys running around. I imagine them doing figure -eights in the streets like shriners in a parade.

    I've got one. But it's been "repurposed" as they say.
