scan0009.jpg Found these photos of an orginal Crosley tractor and attachment from a show i did several yrs back. The owner told me he got the tractor from a Crosley factory in TX. Said it was used only to mow the lawn there. Dont think there are many more of them left around.

Thanks for the pics, very cool!

I have seen pics of one other, when we first started selling Crosley Appliances, the rep brought in a binder with pics of everything the company had built over the years. Some very cool stuff in their past.

Thanks for the pictures. What is that little yellow wheeled thingy in the first picture. Is it some kind of a seeder?

That is a very unique little tractor.
It is surprising how many manufactures of non related products built a small tractor at one time or another.

Not sure what the car is, but almost all the stuff in these pictures belonged to one man who is a huge collector of Crosley stuff.

The car is a pre WWII Crosley car. They were even smaller than the post war models and had a two cylinder engine. My lil brother has one sittin in the weeds out back of his place, but it doesn't look nearly that good.

The yellow "buggy" is a 1/4 midget racer.
They were popular back in the 40's and 50's.
The midget racers have evolved into what is now the "outlaw sprints".
