Chassis Profiles
In 1949, Crosley introduced their Hot Shot model. A trim level above the Hot Shot was added the following year called the Super Sport. Besides having better trim, the Super Sport also had a folding top. The 1951 and 1952 Super Sports were distinguishable from the Hot Shots by having full doors, while the Hot Shots had cut-down sides with either no doors or removable half doors.

Powel Crosley, a manufacturer of radio's and refrigerators, began manufacturing automobiles in 1940. The Crosley cars were tiny, quirky and not very popular.

The 'Hot Shot' was America's first post-war sports car. With only 26.5 horsepower the car was not very fast, but handled well and offered an elemental wind-in-face experience typical of British MG's. Only 2,498 Hot Shots were built between 1948 and 1952. Even though production may have begun in 1948, they were listed as 1949 models. Also, the 2,498 Crosleys produced includes both the VC (Roadster) Hotshots and Supersports. Crosley left the car business after 1952.
