Crosley Automobile Club Inc.

1088 Welch Road S.E.
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



Nominated by Sam Perley - Jeff Ackerman of NY and his Crosley powered "BIGSHOT" roller in service.  Jeff says it  "Works great !" Built in the 50s by a fabricator.

Here are a few other shots - Front, In action, Instruments.


Jeff describes how it works. "The T-92 transmission has 3 pulleys on the back shaft, 3 belts run to 3 pulleys on the front of the larger transmission which then runs a drive shaft off the back of the larger transmission, that has a 6 inch cog that drives the chain to the rear roller with the 20 inch cog. It seems to run nicely with both transmissions in 2nd gear.

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.
