Hallford was the trade name of J & E Halls – who had acquired the rights to build Saurer commercial vehicles under license in the U.K. The first trucks came out in 1907 and by 1911, the model line has expanded significantly. When war broke out, Hallford was one company building trucks for the British Army.

This WD model is powered by a 5.3-liter four-cylinder engine. Hallford as a company wouldn’t make it to the Second World War, but this vehicle remains as a testament to their quality as it is in original, unrestored condition. That’s amazing, really, because it is 100 years old and survived a hellish war. It should bring between $30,000-$34,000. Click here for more.

Update: Sold $58,518.
