1952 Crosley, Super Sports, Restored, Rare, 4-Speed!!
This is likely one of the most rare and desired Crosley’s made: the 1952 model Super Sports wearing many of the Braje performance upgrades. This Crosley, with the upgrades made, is said to be capable of touring at 75 mph can go far beyond 95mph…!!
Crosley was America’s first sportscar. The Super Sports and the Hotshot were the two models most often entered in races.
This Super Sports has been professionally restored (2003) and is equally at home touring as well as on the show field. While wearing some small scratches and such, this is in very nice condition and would be a terrific and fun addition to a collection.
The Braje upgrades include the front grill, the finned valve cover, the exhaust headers and the finned oil pan. These are period upgrades and are about as rare as upgrades can be. The engine is the more powerful Bearcat unit that has been rebuilt along with the restoration. The restoration is from 2003 with minimal mileage accumulated.
It has benefited from an Austin Healey ribbed cased four-speed transmission, a narrowed 1960 Morris Minor rear end with 4:40 gear ratio and a four bar rear suspension with the original Crosley coil springs. The engine was dynoed at 68 hp after rebuild. The rebuilder had the Super Sports to 95 mph and it had far to go…

The well finished red interior compliments the light yellow livery. The chrome is nice and the car overall looks sharp!
This is an excellent opportunity to add a very rare and crowd pleasing motorcar to your collection. Please call Harry at 602.245.7200 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
