In the immediate post war period the demand for passenger chassis was exceptionally high, and, on the strength of the performance of the HOE7 ‘Saurer head’ engine, orders for Crossley chassis poured in.3119 chassis were built between 19, but the concentration of production was in the years before the weaknesses of the HOE7 engine became widely apparent.
Despite its premium prices, the Armstrong-Saurer range earned a solid reputation with hauliers for quality, but sales were a struggle in the depressed 1930s.In the early postwar years, Crossleys sold as well as they did because there was a high demand for buses.When they became part of the ACV group, AEC engineers quickly sorted out the HOE7 engine, and if the demand had still been there, word would have got around and they would have continued to sell.To put it mildly, this was a heap of junk before the present owners (one of whom is a former Crossley employee) started work on it. Greatly enjoyed Peter W’s Youtube link, where the induction noise is more noticeable than on the Reading Crossleys, but the gearbox music is just the same. One of my very favourite bodies on what—despite its engine woes—is also a favourite chassis.The dedication involving in restoring it to its present condition is unbelievable. Nice steering, brakes and clutch, dead easy gearbox.
