Crosley Automobile Club Inc.

307 Schaeffer Rd
Blandon, PA 19510 



Crosley Automobile Club was founded in 1969 and has around 1000 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

 

To kick off the build up to the Nationals in July where Modified Crosleys will be the Spotlight Class. This 51 Wagon at first glace doesn't look all that modified and might even make it into the stock class, that is till you hear it running. It is re-powered by a Harley Davidson air cooled twin. This was owned and shown back in 2008 at the Nationals by Barry Dennis of Michigan.  Not sure if Barry still owns it, if anyone knows send me a note.


The before history is also interesting, Ronnie Kaczmar, long time Crosley owner and member of CAC used it as his daily driver until his death in the mid 2000s. The car had over 200,000 actual miles on it and needed a lot of work. Will not guess how many engine swaps. One of the highest mileage Crosley in existence if not the highest. Here is a before picture.

Here is a list of some of the modification.

Start getting your Crosleys ready for July both modified, stock, race and other variations, we have classes for all of them.

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.
