Top Brass: The Core of the Crawford
Crawford Auto Aviation Museum/Western Reserve Historical Society
“Top Brass: The Core of the Crawford” celebrates the 80th anniversary of Fred Crawford’s original car museum and features many of the cars that were part of Fred Crawford’s original collection and museum. This 22-vehicle display includes a one-of-a-kind 1914 Peerless, Fred’s own Ford Model T, the first sports car ever designed by Ferdinand Porsche, and the beautiful 1920 Mercer Series 5 Raceabout shown here. A section of the exhibit also looks at the marketing prowess of Cleveland’s own Ned Jordan, who not only built beautiful cars but also changed automotive marketing forever.
