My partner and I recently found a '52 Cruiser that had been stored in a barn for some years. It is in mostly original condition, with the exception of the refrigerator and a missing shade for the gas lamp. It has some water damage and a few dents, but with a few repairs can be used as is. Of course, we want to restore it to its former glory! We haven't come across any other Cruisers, and would like to find other Cruiser owners for advice and resources. We have learned that the Cruiser was a pre-cursor of the Overlander, made in CA 1950-52 and then also in OH beginning in 1953
. Ours is 24' and weighs about 3200#. We're currently looking at towing options and are considering a Buick Roadmaster/ Cadillac Fleetwood in the tradition the old V-8 tow cars. We'd love to meet other cruiser owners, so introduce yourself!
