Crosley Automobile Club Inc.

Palm Bay, Florida. 32909



Crosley Automobile Club was founded in 1969 and has around 900 members world wide.

The Crosley club helps bring together collectors of Crosley cars and other products of Powel Crosley. The club publishes 4 newsletters per year, the Crosley Quarterly and a roster of members every other year (new members get most recent roster).

The club sponsors a National meet the second Saturday in July at the Fulton County Fair grounds in Wauseon, Ohio (old Exit 3) Exit 34 on the Ohio Turnpike. The show is now 3 days and officially starts on Thursday, with many showing up on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Crosley Motors Incorporated had its main office and engineering facility in Cincinnati Ohio, with assembly plants in Richmond Indiana (1939-1942) and Marion Indiana (1946-1952).

The Crosley automobile was the brain child of Powel Crosley, who had already made his fortune as a radio and appliance manufacturer, owner of WLW the "Nation's Station" and the Cincinnati Reds baseball team.

Crosley of the Month

 

How is this for a transformation? The above shot was taken a couple of years ago at Hershey. Ken Acheson of NJ made this ugly duckling into a swan.


Amazing what a couple years of hard work will produce. Here is a side and rear shot.

The club is primarily for the support of Crosley vehicle owners, but welcomes all that are interested in the products of Powel Crosley. The club also welcomes owners of the various vehicles that used the Crosley engine such as the Crofton, Bandini, Devin, Panda, Sabre, Skorpion, etc. Custom vehicles using any part of the Crosley are also welcome. A special class for non-automotive Crosley products such as radios and appliances made by Crosley is part of our National show and the occasional articles in the Quarterly.
