Spot a pre-war car

RFC Crossley




Please find an image of a WW1 Crossley RFC Light Tender which may not be a pre-war car, motorbike or boat but is in its way remarkable
Crossley Tenders were used by the Royal Flying Corps for transporting engines and other aircraft parts as well as personnel.
They are powered by a 4 cylinder 4500cc engine and weigh 1700 kg unladen so have a high power to weight ration and good turn of speed.
This example has not been taxed for the road since the early 1970s but is now again on the road.
unusually the body is 100% orginal and generally appears to have seen very little use.
There are a few WW1 films on youtube:
