By 1939, industrialist Powel Crosley, Jr. had already made a fortune as a radio and appliance manufacturer. He also had a passion for cars, and believed that America was ready for a small economy car. With the assistance of his younger brother Lewis, he incorporated Crosley Motors and began assembling his tiny, no-frills cars in Richmond, Indiana.
Part of Crosley's plan was to sell his microcars in department stores that also sold his radios and refrigerators. The design made the car narrow enough (48" width) to be moved through a standard commercial store door, and small enough to be worked on in back rooms. Indeed, most of the car's sales came Crosley appliance stores.
