The automotive brand Crosley was created by Powel Crosley of Cincinnati, who set about building extremely compact or 'micro' cars with his brother Lewis in the late 1930s. WWII and fuel rationing entailed that the popularity and success of cars such as those produced by Crosely saw demand rise significantly; and the brand developed in the post War years.

The Hotshot 'sports' model was introduced to the Crosley range in 1949 and became a car that would be the blueprint for a number of competition vehicles to come from the brand, including a car to win the 1950 Sebring Six Hours. We are proud to offer a true roadster specification Hotshot, complete without doors or roof, and benefiting from a recent restoration leaving a car in very good all round condition. The Maroon exterior is beautifully contrasted by the cream wheels and tan interior and this example also comes with a Crosley radio, chrome bumpers and a rear-mounted spare wheel. This is a fantastic classic that is a part of American history, but with real motorsport provenance that will be appreciated in the years to come.
