The Crossley 2-litre Sports Saloon was manufactured between 1933 and 1934. Approximately 25 were made of which three and some remains of two others survive.
Chassis numbers range from 16/101 to 16/125.
The engine was based on that used in the 15.7 and Silver but featured higher compression ratio and modified cylinder head and timing and was virtually identical to the ones Crossley had been supplying to Lagonda for their 16/80 model. The substantial chassis was to a new design.
