RealRides of WNY - 1952 Crosley

Even with the vast resourses of the internet at my fingertips, it’s difficult to get a bead on this particular 1952 Crosley pickup (MSRP $925!). Spotted a couple of summers ago at the annual Kiwanis car show in Pembroke, this one even has a matching trailer. The decal on the tailgate identifies the truck as a Crosley Short Sport — of which the internet has never heard. The trailer’s decal says Crosley Squirt. Again, nothing. I’ll assume that these names were bestowed on them by the owner, and that the trailer is home-made — the only one I found on the web said it was fashioned from a Crosley pickup. No surprise. At any rate, Crosley advertised these little pickups as having a quarter-ton capacity, “..perfect for all service men, farms, city and country places.”
