In 1938, Britian's Mechanisation Board had Alvis Limited, BSA Cycles Limited, and Morris Commercial Cars Limited submit prototypes for a turretless scouting vehicle. The Daimler version was designed as a fast reconnaissance and liaison vehicle so out of the three designs submitted the one from BSA's (Daimler's owner) was selected. The Dingo featured a front wheel drive, sliding roof over the crew, and a potbelly cab. The engine was placed in the rear and the driver was positioned at an angle to help him drive in both directions.
Pictured here is a 1:76 scale replica of a British Army Dingo Scout Car that was attached to the10th Mounted Rifles, 10th Armored Car Battalion.
