Photographed at the 2013 Orphan Car Show in Ypsilanti. There was a variety of Crosleys at the OCS, including this survivor from 1942. While only 1,029 Crosleys were made in 1942 due to the United States entering World War II after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, Crosley was actually the last U.S. manufacturer to stop civilian car production. The tiny Crosleys’ outstanding fuel economy at a time of gasoline rationing was a factor, but also, the War Production Board took some time before it determined how best to use Crosley’s production facilities for the war effort.
