Roadster
Crosley was one of the few pre-war Indiana producers to build cars after the Second World War, and 1952 would be their final attempt at winning the hearts of car buyers. The Crosley was introduced in 1939 and were built as a low-cost, basic vehicle. Sales reached 9,089 in 1948 with body styles ranging from a convertible to a station wagon. By 1952, sales had dwindled to just 2,075 units. At this point, the company was owned by the General Tire Company and it made the decision to end automobile production.

This Crosley Super Shot was purchased by Frank LLoyd Wright. It has been given a restoration and painted in his signature color of Taliesin Red. Power is from a 44 cubic-inch four-cylinder engine that offers 25.5 horsepower. The car, which has an 85-inch wheelbase, sold new for $1,029.
