The Crosley does look great!! The show Dave is refering to is the annual show held at Stratton Mountain Resort in Vt. July 16-17. The show draws some truly unique
antique cars from early brass era to Duesenbergs to .... Crosleys.... If you have never been and are in the New England/Ny area it is a must see.

44 CU IN 26.5 HP Overhear cam 4 cylinder. 2.25 in bore by 2.5 in stroke. It has full hydraulic dump bed / draw bar (got to take the top off) and a rear PTO which I still have to find (or make) a shifter and shaft for. It also has a 3 speed forward gearbox with a high and low range making it effectively a 6 speed forward 2 reverse. They were sold with optional equipment like dual rear wheels, plow, disc, culitvator, post hole digger, snow plow, sickle bar mower, rotary mower, hay rake and many others. There were something in the area of 500 built between 1950 and 1952. Oh the passenger side windshield wiper was an option also!!!

I just wanted to let everyone know that I did go to the Hemmings Concours over the weekend. It was a great show with beautiful weather and a lot of nice vehicles. I am also pleased to say that the Farm O Road won the Microcar class in the concours. I also took second place in the class with my Crosley Hotshot. I took alonng a plow and disc set up to show the garden tractor capabilities of the vehicle. It was well recieved by the public and people were amazed that "such a small vehicle can tow a plow". I guess they haven't seen what some of you guys can do!!!

There is a big Crosley collector in Burlington Iowa that has one of these jeep like thing, and a Crosley tractor with a plow, and seeder. I cant remember his name right now, but im sure he's in the Crosley owners lists.
