    The Crosley Super Sport was built by Gerald Davenport which he has raced at Maxton and Bonneville ... He has a bunch of Crosleys in every description ... his website is "Crosley1010.com"

    Thanks

    "The Little Giant" will always define the perfect Crosley for me. I do prefer it with the side (fenders) on it though...picture above must have been after George sold it by the looks of the name on the roof. Also notice the Hertz Rent-a-Shelby (GT350H) in the staging lanes!
    Bob-nice Crosley; just a wee bit too low for me, but I'm an old timer, and don't care much for all this slammed stuff. Again, "505", the "Little Giant" is my bellweather...

    [​IMG]In the late '50's there was a street driven Crossley station wagon crusing El Camino around Redwood City very much like this one. I heard it had a Cad in it.

    Is this a cut down wagon or an actual Crosley pick up?I know of a body like this but thought someone cut a wagon to make it.
