This Crossley's lightweight chassis carries a two-seat-plus-dickey sports body, the latter very rare as most were four-seater types. The Crossley was re-imported from Australia in 1990 and restored; first registered here in 2002, it is one of only two of its type in this country. The restoration was carried out by Nigel Parrot (N P Veteran Engineering). Engine work (including an increase in compression ratio) cost £5,793, while a new crown wheel/pinion and bearings cost a further £1,200. Other works carried out include rebuilding the radiator and fitting a new Autovac, interior upholstery, hood, tonneau cover, and clutch lining, the latter in 2014. An alternator has been fitted but the original Rotax dynamo (in working order) comes with the car. In the present ownership since 2012, the Crossley was driven to Nice in the South of France for a holiday in 2017 without any problems, winning overall the Concours d'Élégance at St Brieuc while there. It has also competed in the VSCC's Goodwood Sprint and is a winner of the prestigious Pomeroy Edwardian Trophy for non-FWB cars. We are advised by the private vendor that the car is in generally very good condition, the engine displaying excellent oil pressure (15psi hot or cold).
Sold only because the owner is downsizing his collection, this delightful and rare early Vintage sports car comes with a good file of history containing sundry restoration bills, copies of marque-related literature, all MoTs up to 2014, etc. Stored in recent years, the car will require re-commissioning before further use.
