About D-Type - WWI British Staff Car:
At about the same time Henry Ford began producing Model T’s in the United States, Vauxhall set out to design a car for the war effort. The onset of the Great War saw an expansion of automobile design and production. The “D-Type” model was reserved for military commanders and their staff, who often preferred it to horses. In the age of the machine gun and barbed wire, motor vehicles in all forms began to replace horses as the main mode of transportation both in and out of battle. Along with planes and tanks, the automobile would prove to be another major field of advancement during the Great War.
