Information about Crossley

Crossley Motors, founded in 1904 by brothers William and Francis Crossley, stands as a beacon of British automotive craftsmanship with its rich heritage deeply rooted in Manchester, England. Known for their robust engineering and innovation, the Crossley brothers initially launched the company with the 20 hp, a sturdy model that swiftly set the standard for quality and reliability in the pre-war British automotive landscape.

Throughout the early 20th century, Crossley expanded beyond passenger vehicles to produce military trucks and aircraft engines, thereby playing a pivotal role during both World Wars. This diversification not only underscored their adaptability but also cemented their reputation as a versatile and dependable manufacturer.

In the post-war era, Crossley faced challenges adapting to the changing market, leading to a cessation of car production in 1958. Despite this, the legacy of Crossley Motors continues to resonate within the vintage car community. Enthusiasts and collectors treasure Crossley vehicles for their historical significance and craftsmanship. Today, the brand lives on as a symbol of pioneering British automotive history, celebrated for its contributions to early motor vehicle development and its lasting impact on the industry.
