Crosley, best known for radios and appliances, entered the postwar market with new styling and a new powerplant for their economical little cars. Power was upgraded from the prewar 2-cylinder air-cooled engine to a water-cooled 4-cylinder engine. The CoBra (Copper Brazed — also known as “The Mighty Tin”) was originally developed by Taylor Engines in California, for military use aboard PT boats and B-17 bombers. The engine was made from sheetmetal, rather than cast iron, to obtain a thin, uniform wall thickness and thus avoid the creation of hot spots around the combustion chamber that could ignite the fuel, causing pre-ignition (spark knock).
