Footnotes

  • Previously a manufacturer of proprietary engines, Crossley Brothers Limited, of Manchester built their first motor car in 1904. In the post-war years the company concentrated its efforts on transportation for the middle classes, a policy helped considerably by the marque’s popularity with British royalty. Towards the end of the 1920s this policy changed and the firm turned its attention to producing smaller cars, a decision that brought Crossley into direct competition with much larger rivals, thus precipitating its demise.
    Introduced for 1935, the Regis was available with Coventry Climax inlet-over-exhaust four/six-cylinder engines of 1,122cc/1,476cc capacity, though a few dozen cars were built to special order with 1,650cc engines. A Wilson pre-selector gearbox and automatic clutch were standard equipment. (The Crossley Register lists around 24 Regis saloons still existing out of approximately 600 produced).
    Complete and original, this four-cylinder Regis failed the MoT test in 1966 because of excess kingpin play and was driven into a barn pending repair. A change in the then owner’s personal circumstances meant that the work was never carried out and the vehicle has remained where it had been left for the past 41 years. A quality light car from a once prestigious manufacturer, it is deserving of sympathetic restoration. Sold strictly as viewed, the car is offered with Swansea V5 registration document. No reserve.
