Department-store classics go on show in Missouri


Kemp Auto Museum’s ‘From Aisles to Avenues’ exhibition will showcase Crosley cars until 4 November in Chesterfield, USA.

The manufacturer was responsible for America’s first post-war compact cars, which were sold in the appliance department of Macy shops from 1925-’52, alongside rotary phones and radios.

The exhibits on display include a 1939 Convertible, 1947 Sedan, 1952 Station Wagon plus a Super Sport Zero Roadster, a Super Convertible and a Dairy Pick-up, all from 1951.

Well they weren't wrong, just fifty years ahead of the market.
Bring back the Crosley Hot-Shot!
That should even be eligible for major historic racing; it won it's class at Sebring in 1950 - betcha didn't know that.............
