Vehicle Description

Only about 250 of these were built, and far fewer remain. They were manufactured from 1958 through 1963 so many people have never seen one. What it is, is a Crofton Bug – 1959 model! It really is a serious and rugged machine. The engine is derived from a Crosley inline four. It measures 44 cubic inches and about 35 horsepower. When you open the hood, you’ll surely be impressed with the engine compartment. Everything is neat and orderly, and it features wiring that many muscle car owners would envy. The finned aluminum valve cover and aluminum radiator lend an air of sophistication and quality. Power is transferred through a three speed manual transmission. The dash features a Yes, the Bug is streetable, but really shines off road, on the farm, or around town, with a top speed of about 50mph. The vehicle has been lovingly restored to as new condition and everything functions as new. In its day, the Crofton Bug saw duty in industry, airports, and farms. These are heavy-duty commercial applications.
This Crofton Bug is titled and completely street legal just like any car or truck. You might just want to drive, show, and preserve your Bug, but it’s nice to know it’s capable of much more.
