Crosley Automobile Club Inc.

307 Schaeffer Rd
Blandon, PA 19510 



Crosley Automobile Club was founded in 1969 and has around 1000 members world wide.

The Crosley club helps bring together collectors of Crosley cars and other products of Powel Crosley. The club publishes 4 newsletters per year, the Crosley Quarterly and a roster of members every other year (new members get most recent roster).

The club sponsors a National meet the second Saturday in July at the Fulton County Fair grounds in Wauseon, Ohio (old Exit 3) Exit 34 on the Ohio Turnpike. The show is now 3 days and officially starts on Thursday, with many showing up on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Crosley Motors Incorporated had its main office and engineering facility in Cincinnati Ohio, with assembly plants in Richmond Indiana (1939-1942) and Marion Indiana (1946-1952).

The Crosley automobile was the brain child of Powel Crosley, who had already made his fortune as a radio and appliance manufacturer, owner of WLW the "Nation's Station" and the Cincinnati Reds baseball team.

Crosley of the Month



Camp Hale with the Mountaineers circa 1943 - The Pup was tested at Hale for cold weather duty and other testing to see if they wanted to make a larger order.  Our records say a total of 36 Pups were constructed for testing at several sites. The picture above seems to have more of a floatation tire installed instead of the standard military cross tread.


Enlisted women helped in every noncombat role including the motor pool during WW-2, apparently the Pup was up for use when not in testing.

The club is primarily for the support of Crosley vehicle owners, but welcomes all that are interested in the products of Powel Crosley. The club also welcomes owners of the various vehicles that used the Crosley engine such as the Crofton, Bandini, Devin, Panda, Sabre, Skorpion, etc. Custom vehicles using any part of the Crosley are also welcome. A special class for non-automotive Crosley products such as radios and appliances made by Crosley is part of our National show and the occasional articles in the Quarterly.
