    Just compare this to the cars Americans were buying ten years later, Crosley couldn’t have gotten it more wrong.

    You could almost carry one of these in the trunk of a ’56 Chevy as a spare.

    Or buy two, and keep one in the icebox for hot days.

    That’s a nice rendering of an auto she’s looking at there.
    If I remember correctly the “new” Crosley was painted in over a prewar model for that shot.

    And the engine photo (at least the one I remember) has a picture of Powell Crosley himself holding the block in his hands.
    It was made from folded sheet metal and worked like a champ.
