A Rare Crossley


I would like to thank Mr. Lee, secretary of the Crossley Register, for the information he was able to provide about the Crossley, a photograph of which you published in the July issue of Motor Sport. I can confirm that the registration of the car owned by my relation was indeed MB 3838 and I enclose another photograph, taken at the same time, which shows, clearly, the number plate, bulb horn and rear view mirror referred to by Mr. Lee.

In your July issue, E. F. T. Leguen De Lacroix requests identification sheets Crossley. This is a 19.6 Crossley fitted with a 1/4 landaulette body which could be by Crossley Motors Ltd. One of these cars was operated as a taxi in the Windermere area in the 1930s. I have cause to remember these and other Crossleys, as my late father operated several different types between 1921 and 1930, including, 1914/18 war-time Ex-W. D. J and X types. I sold my last Crossley, a 1927 20.9 Six in 1935, which I understand ended its days as a taxi on Anglesey. The Registration No. was NF 918. I wonder if anyone there remembers it?
