FAR was a French truck manufacturer, affiliated with Chenard-Walcker.

It was founded in 1919 and ceased manufacture in 1970.


Among the company's products was the 'Pony Mécanique', developed by the Napier motor company and improved in design by Oliver Danson North. It was a three-wheeled articulated tractor unit fitted with automatic coupling gear to enable rapid change of trailers. These vehicles were built under licence from UK company Scammell, from 1937 to 1970.
