1925 Crossley 15/30 V Screen Saloon

We have great pleasure in selling on behalf of our client this superb motor car. The origins of the Crossley Motor company date back to an engineering company called Crossley Brothers which was set up in 1867 in Manchester. The move to motor vehicle production began in April 1906 when Crossley Motors Ltd was first registered. After the Great War several models were introduced by the company and the one we are presenting for sale is the 2.3 litre 15/30 model which was actually an export model that was sold to New Zealand. Interestingly this model was designated in the home market as the 14hp although its actual RAC horsepower rating was 15.6. This model was produced between 1922 and 1927 and it is estimated that approximately 1000 cars were sold. The car that we have for sale is the only known 15/30 V Screen survivor that was bodied by Crossley, making this a unique piece of automotive history.

We have records showing that the car was completely rebuilt by a previous owner in New Zealand and we have on file a newsletter showing the car to have won the Meritorious Cup in Wellington in 1994 reflecting the fantastic ground up restoration that its previous owner had undertaken. We have photographs on file showing the car to have been taken back to its chassis during what was clearly a very thorough restoration. Later custodians of the car including the current owner have ensured this car remains in perfect condition. The photographs of the car really speak for themselves and it really does look as good in the flesh as it does in the pictures.

The interior is trimmed in grey leather and is still in superb condition as is the headlining and all of the interior woodwork. The dashboard is artwork itself and simply looks stunning when you are sitting in the cabin. All of the chrome work is first class and the paint finish has been done to a very high standard. The chassis is in superb condition and overall it is very difficult to find fault with this car. The engine starts without problem once the fuel has started to flow and the engine runs cleanly and sounds very good indeed. The car has a three speed box and moves through the gears without problem.

The car comes with a full photocopied instruction manual and there is also a comprehensive booklet of technical information that contains full mechanical details of the engine and gearbox along with a good amount of historical notes that should provide the car’s new custodian with all of the information needed to maintain the car.

This is a very rare opportunity to acquire a unique piece of automotive history and given the exemplary condition the car is in it is ready to go out and win shows and provide its new owner with many miles of happy motoring. We had the car outside in the sunshine at the weekend to photograph it in our grounds and it took twice as long as normal due to the sheer number of people wanting to come and talk about it. You will certainly be the centre of attention wherever you go with this fabulous car!
