CLASSIC CARS: 1951 Crosley saved from crusher, spreads joy after restoration

1951 Crosley Super Sedan 2nd

Powell Crosley envisioned a tiny, lightweight economy car unlike anything Detroit was manufacturing. In 1951, a 1,370-pound Crosley Super Sedan 2nd had a base price of $1,033 and a 26.5-horsepower, four-cylinder engine.

In the late 1950s, John Van Sickle's father operated an Amoco service station in a remote town of Ohio, far from Cincinnati where Crosleys were manufactured. The station's service "truck" was an old Crosley.
