Nixon Agnew? 1951 Crosley Hot Shot

This next car comes as a tip from Matt C who writes: A Crosley Hot Shot is rare enough - but the sticker on the right of the rear bumper sticker gives it some extra amusement factor. I'd have thought most of those would be scraped off by now...  Find this 1951 Crosley Hot Shot offered for $2500 in Winnetka, IL via craigslist.


From the seller:
 Barn find. 38,000 plus miles. engine condition unknown. floor pans good,chassis and components good. spares include extra block,head,pan. 2 cranks,2 water pumps, 2 fuel pumps. NOS bearings and piston rings. misc. Will consider a trade for a French or Italian car of similar condition.

  1. I met a gentleman in Coeur D'alene, Idaho who had restored one of these to a high standard, then dropped a 100-hp flat-six from a Honda Goldwing in it. He said it was pretty quick.

  2. Seller says he has an extra head with it??!!! These engines don't have cylinder heads, wonder what he means. My Dad used to race these indoors on an eighth mile concrete oval in the 50s.
