Marmon Herrington


South African built armoured cars on an American chassis with a 4-wheel-drive conversion supplied by Marmon Herrington of Indianapolis.

Although crude by contemporary British standards, they proved rugged and reliable in the North African desert.

Most were initially armed with machine guns only, but many were subsequently modified by their owners to carry all manner of weapons.
