1939 Crosley Convertible: Tiny Drop Top

1939 Crosley Convertible Coupe
When I think of pre-1940’s American cars, I picture large sedans with art deco styling and massive flathead engines, but one American manufacturer went against the norm and tried to build something compact and efficient long before any fuel crises mandated it. Crosley was a brand that truly went against the trends in an attempt to carve out a new niche in America. This 1939 Crosley Convertible Coupe is one of about 2k ever built and has been in storage for the past 45 years! As you can see, it is extremely small and can best be described as being cute. It has a few styling traits reminiscent of the big cars of the era, but overall was unlike anything else on the road. In a sea of Fords and Chevys, this Crosley would stand out at any car show it attends. If you are like me and love oddballs, you can find this one here on eBay with an opening bid of $2,500 and a BIN of $4k in Narrowsburg, New York. So would you give this cute little American car a home in your garage?
