Crosley was a small independent car maker that produced compact cars from 1939 till 1952 and was based out of Cincinnati Ohio and was founded by the owner of the Cincinnati Reds. Offering a variety of body styles including sedans, convertibles, pickups, wagons, and vans, all of Crosley's cars were very simple with solid axles, body on frame construction, 80in wheelbases, leaf springs, and engines smaller than 1 liter. Crosley's first car was introduced in April of 1939 and the little roadster was sold for just $325. The outbreak of WW2 stopped car production and the company found itself manufacturing gun turrets for B-24 bombers. Surprisingly, Crosley hit the ground running after the end of the war and was the first American production car offered with four wheel disc brakes as well as the first production overhead cam engine.
