The Crossley Regis was manufactured between 1935 and 1937. Approximately 1050 were made.
Chassis numbers range from 100001 to 101043. 100001 to 100100 were used for both four and six cylinder cars but for later manufacture 100101 to 100599 was used for the 10/4 with 100504 being the highest known number. 100601 onwards were for the 6 cylinder Regis 12 and 6. No cars in the 100901 to 100999 sequence are known so it might not have been used.
The engines were made by Coventry Climax but carried Crossley badging.
The Regis originated when the Scottish dealer Gordon C McAndrew wanted an updated "Ten" for his use and commisioned C F Beauvais of coachbuilders New Avon to design the body. This was fitted to a modified 10hp chassis. This design was adapted by Crossley to produce the Regis Saloon with the original Beauvais design offered as the Sports Saloon. Both versions were shown at the 1934 London Motor Show. The lower built Sports Saloon was the popular choice with very few, possibly only 6, of the standard saloon made.
The four and six cylinder models were launched simultaneously. The only external difference between the 4 and 6 cylinder models is the grille which has a cross hatch pattern on the 4 cylinder and vertical slats on the 6 cylinder models.
Other body styles existed, especially on exported cars which were often supplied in chassis only form.
