Devin Crosley Project
A friend of mine took on this project from a person from ILL. Then it came to my shop for work. The car is a Devin fiberglass body over a home made frame . The drive train is from a Crosley. We thought the car was from the early to mid 50's . It was found in Indiana mostly complete. The engine that was in the car was rusted bad in the cylinders . And would need to be sleeved . But the bottom end was in good shape. The owner of the car supplyed another engine that was an outboard boat engine. This engine was from what I was told at the time an OMC . When crosley went belly up , the rights to the engine were sold to OMC. They re did the engine to run standing upright for outboard use. Kind of neat. The boat engine was in good shape. So I used the upped jug , pistons , rods on the lower end of the car engine. With new bearings , rings , seals , cam , oil pump , and gaskits. Put the engine together. I painted it detroit diesel silver to give the engine that " Offy look " we were looking for. I remade the rad mounts , front engine mount , and master cylinder mounts . Rebuilt the brake system which had the Goodyear Hawley disc brake set up on the car. I had someone make up wheel adaptors to mount on knock off spoke wheels. I got the engine into the car , made up a new fire wall out of aluminum . Cleaned and painted the MG TF transmission . Had to rework the adaptor for the trans so it would work better. Was almost to the finsh , when my friend became very sick. Shortly after , he passed away. The owner of the car picked it up . and I haven't seen it since. So I don't really know what happened to it. But in all , it was a very fun and challenging project that i'll never forget. Sadly , many of the pictures I took along the way of this project were taken. What you see , are the picture I have left to remember what I did. This build happened between 02 and 03. Thanks for taking the time to watch and read all of this. Matt.......chevahaulic :)
