Footnotes

  • Another of the vehicles with a particular significance in the Banfield collection, this immaculately restored Garford truck is built on a similar chassis to that of Charles Banfield's first vehicle, a truck which he bought in 1926 and fitted with a small charabanc body. It was first registered to John Howitt & Sons of Newark-on-Trent, Nottinghamshire, in December 1926, though it is actually several years older.

    Based in Elyria, Ohio, Garford grew out of the Federal Manufacturing Company that had made components for the automobile industry since 1903 and supplied complete chassis to several manufacturers, including Studebaker of South Bend, Indiana, which had begun manufacturing horse carts and carriages in 1852 and claimed to be the biggest manufacturer of wagons and buggies in the world.

    Early Studebaker automobiles were known as "Studebaker-Garfords", but the link was broken in 1911 after Studebaker took over EMF, and Garford's car-manufacturing operation was taken over by Willys-Overland, while its truck-making side – opened in 1909 – continued as an independent operation, relocating to Lima, Ohio, in 1915.

    Garford sent many trucks to Europe during the Great War, and in 1919 built on that link by introducing the 3.4-litre Model 25, "the huskiest 1¼-ton truck ever built". Curiously, though Garford commercial vehicle production had not been part of the Willys-Overland deal in the USA, in England Garford trucks were marketed alongside Overland vans through Willys-Overland-Crossley of Heaton Chapel, Stockport, who offered it as a 1.5-tonner at £775.

    Mounted on authentic white rubber large-section pneumatic tyres, this handsome truck was acquired for the collection in 1964. It is in running order and comes complete with buff log book and a contemporary sales brochure.

Saleroom notices

  • According to information which has come to light following publication of the catalogue, this lot was bought in circa 1962 by Barry Pook from a car dealer in Newark, the lorry was sold to him as being brand new and completely unused having sat in a showroom all its life and the condition at this time was certainly commensurate with this. Barry subsequently sold the lorry to Michael Banfield.
