The 1952 Crosley Skorpion was built by Powel Crosley, a manufacturer of radios and refrigerators, began manufacturing two-cylinder automobiles in 1939 in Indiana and Ohio. The Crosley cars were tiny, quirky and advertised as Americas most needed car. Originally the cars were displayed and purchased through department stores, such as Macys. After several orders were place, the company opened up their own dealer showroom in New York. By the early 1950s, sales were slow. The last Crosley line was introduced in 1951 and would remain essentially unchanged until production ended in July of 1952. On March 28th of 1953, Crosley Motors merged with Aerojet Engineering Company of Azusa, California, both companies being members of the General Tire and Rubber Company. This particular car is a Crosley Scorpion. It has a Crosley 4-cylinder engine and an all-fiberglass body.
