1915 (743) Hall For Sale

On Request.

Most cars built after the Great War did not differ much from the ones built before. One that is a noteworthy exception of this statement is the experimental prototype built by H.E. Hall between 1911 and 1915 in Tunbridge Wells, England. According to Hall, other cars of that period only showed differences in price and minor details, most of which Hall found unnecessary. His automobile however, distinct itself mostly through the fact that it was powered by a straight 8 cylinder engine, a type that was extremely rare in cars, especially at that time.
Hall used various existing parts to construct his vehicle. He used the chassis of an old Arrol-Aster, the gearbox and front and rear axles of a 1912 Studebaker Six and the cylinders of a Bayard, for example. His style of building is best displayed by the fact that the oil filter was neatly made out of a Studebaker’s hubcaps: Hall improvised and borrowed, but the result was a car working perfectly. When the car he named ‘HALL’ finally gained the attention of the press, 4 years after it was finished, Hall had driven it for 4000 miles already. During that time, he improved the automobile.
In an 1919 interview with The Autocar, he stated that he’d ran the car with “the greatest satisfaction and an entire absence of trouble”. Also, he mentioned it can do 20 miles to the gallon on petrol and “plain” tyres: 875 x 105 Waymasters. As opposed to other vehicles on the market, HALL barely vibrates when at speed, due to its remarkable engine. The cylinders fire consecutively, not in pairs. Furthermore, the power is transmitted through a short crank shaft and the valves of the engine were located on the sides of the cylinders.
When Hall’s car was first registered in 1914 or 1915, it received the license number KN1. Since the Great War started around that time, the vehicle was hidden to protect it. Afterwards, it has been discussed in articles several times: in The Autocar (February 22nd, 1919), in Car (1969), and in Motorsport (May 1977). During the years, the state it was in, started to decline. Luckily, it was restored back to its original state, and is here at Classic Park to be admired
