In the 1920's and 1930's Canada only had small armed forces, a limited defence budget and limited armament production facilities. Despite this two armoured cars were ordered in 1932. Built by Ford and Chevrolet they were intended to train units.
Delays in obtaining suitable AFV-pattern Vickers machine guns meant that they were initially used without any armament. Canadian wheeled AFVs built in WWII owed little or nothing to them but they are nevertheless interesting vehicles in their own right.
