Lynx Scout Car

The Ford Lynx Scout Car was produced in Canada during World War II by the Ford Motor Company in Windsor, Ontario.

It was a Ford V-8 powered armoured scout car and is based upon the Daimler DINGO. These were replaced by the Ferret Scout Car in 1954.

If anyone has one for sale, I would like to know about it  – being a Canadian and fan of our WWII vehicles production.

TEMPORARY NOTICE RE: PHOTOS: Due to my closing down my old website (1999-2016 March) and moving the content over to this new web site, I have to reload many of the photos and delete obsolete tables. I am working my way through the website replacing missing photos. Thank you for your patience. 2016-03-14
