In our first Saturday Morning run at the ECTA Maxton June event,  our hot rod 2 liter TR7 ran 119.894 mph on the ECTA’s one mile course. The new full race Tr7 engine bested our previous best of 111.715mph by over 8mph. I short shifted the engine and was easy on the throttle through the gears… hopes were high that we could tune the car into the high 120’s. We made a quick driver change and put Tony Chiles behind the wheel. Amazingly, the car slowed to 105mph. Tony diagnosed an engine bearing failure and our weekend focus turned to our “J” Gas Crosley Pickup.

1951 Crosley Dairy Delivery… A National Champion

Posted by admin September - 18 - 2009 - Friday ADD COMMENTS

I purchased this vehicle as a rolling hulk back in 2006 and have invested over 2.5 years in complete rebuild by Crosley Master Tim Freshley into a Race Quality / Show Quality truck.  This is definitely a one-of-a-kind vehicle. The photo above was taken at the Crosley Nationals on July 11, 2009, exactly one week after the vehicle was completed. In that this Crosley spent most of its first life as a Dairy Delivery vehicle, we entered it in the Commercial Vehicles class, where it won it’s first National title.

My Crosley truck is shown here nearly complete in January 2009 in front of Tim Freshley’s Randolph, Ohio shop.
