I never asked what years the roll back window was used, that would be 34-39 but the door pictured was one year only, 34. The same door as 33 but with the wider rear post for the shorter glass. The 35 to 39 doors don't have that added looking "flap" of metal as the 34 because it was a modified 33. But the 35-39 didn't have any odd look to them. The glass simply slid back into the channel more. That rear channel for the glass on a 35-39 is about two inches deep.

Yes, Joe has it.

Thanks, Brian.

Next question:

What American automaker was the first to offer front and rear disc brakes as standard equipment on it's entire line of vehicles?

Anybody?

Here's a hint. This company was a household name long before they decided to build automobiles.

Crosley, 1949, switched back to drum brakes 6 months later , had problems. Some of the Crosley radios were about as large as the car. Company founded in 1920 by Powell Crosley because he was aghast at the cost ( $135 ) of a current radio made by a soon to be competitor. He made his own for $35 and decided to start his own company. Other than cars and radios he made AM/FM radios, portable suitcase - styled record players and turntables, record changers, multi- functional audio cassette/compact disc players, jukeboxes, music boxes, telephones and more. Best childhood friend was a heavyset boy with a lisp names Hugo. Lost his virginity at the age of 11 to a local strumpet named "Loosey Lucy". Crosley Field, ( home of the first nighttime baseball game), in Cincinnati Ohio named after him. His favorite saying was "Hubba Hubba" which he would do while waggling his eyebrows.

I have always been a lover of the micro cars, Crosley being my favorite, very neat little cars.

Yes it is a rear engine car but there were rear engine race cars long before this one. That's not what I'm looking for. No Preston Tucker wasn't the driver either.
Speaking of Tucker if his car had been a success we might have been able to drive one of these.

Al miller was the driver right? Four wheel disc brakes? I have been reading on the car and the stories are just too much! To figure out exactly what you want isn't easy because there are is so much "special" about the car and it's stories. WILD stuff!
