1943-1945 Crosley Tractor
Believed To Be One Of Three Built By The Factory

The first used a PreWar Crosley drive line, with the 2cyl opposed air cooled Waukesha engine. That one was scrapped.

This one used the new fabricated tin block engine being made for military use. It currently has a later cast iron version of that engine.  It reportedly was built for use on the grounds of the Crosley factory and was not intended for sale.  It was used to pull gang mowers and parts carts. Proof is word of mouth, documentation would be nice if anyone has any info.

The third tractor was the size of a Farmall Cub and is owned by a collector in Iowa.  Other Crosley powered tractors were built by Jacques and Power King.
