Crosley Roundside
After WWII the 1946 model Crosleys were introduced. Known as the "Roundside", Crosley modified the body work by creating a more square and modern look.

But the biggest improvement to the little car was the implementation of an overhead cam 4 cylinder engine.

While the prices went up marginally, the Crosley remained America's cheapest car, and in some respects became a leader in innovation.

In 1947 Crosley began production of an all-steel wagon, and in 1949 they introduced 4-wheel disk brakes as standard equipment.

1949 saw the introduction of the first mass produced sports cars, titled the "Hot Shot" and the "Super Sport".
