Daimler Dingo Armoured Scout Car
We just took delivery of a Daimler Dingo Armoured Scout Car. This is the first time and probably the last.
It’s the first we have had in thirty years, partly because world war 2 stuff is mighty rare and partly because we at Tanks A Lot are a post war driving centre for the public to have great fun on their special day and tracked vehicles seem to excite old ladies more.
Basically she looks like a MK 2 but could have been a MK 1 upgraded half way through the war. That’s something we plan to research. She’s been dry stored for 25 years, has no rust and is road legal with a V5.
We plan to give it a gentle wake up early April, for someone to take to the Normandy celebrations.
Probably hard to find a better investment that’s fun too.
