The Crossley Silver, which superseded the 15.7, was manufactured between 1930 and 1934. Main changes from the 15.7 were an amended chassis (common with the Golden), a centre change gear box and shaft/rod operated Perrot-Bendix brakes. In 1934 it became the "Super Silver" using the "Sports" specification engine and chassis. Only 14 of these are thought to have been built.

Chassis numbers range from 81265 to 81899. Approximately 535 were made.
