Australian 1942  Ford Dingo armoured car - not to  be confused with the British Daimler Dingo armoured car

not  going to win any beauty stakes  

A total of 245 vehicles were built between late 1941 and early 1943, when production ceased due to the unsatisfactory performance of the vehicle.

Further modifications and development was halted in favour of the imported Lynx Scout Cars from Canada. The Dingo Scout Car served mainly with the Australian armoured divisions as a training vehicle. It had a crew of 2, carried a Wireless Set No.19 Mark 2 and was armed with a Bren Light Machine Gun.
