Bovington Tank Museum - Peerless Armoured Car

Bovington Tank Museum - Peerless Armoured Car

In 1919 the British Army found itself short of armoured cars when many were needed quickly to police various trouble spots around the world. Few manufacturers wanted to do war work at the time but the Austin Motor Company of Birmingham agreed to provide armoured bodies if the War Office could come up with suitable chassis.

Austin had made armoured cars during the war, mostly for the Imperial Russian Government which favoured a twin turret design. Some of these cars later served with the Tank Corps. The best chassis that the War Office could come up with was the Peerless, of which stocks were available. The Peerless was a robust, chain-drive chassis manufactured in Cleveland, Ohio which had been used in large numbers as lorries by the British Army during the war. In fact the chassis was too long for the Austin body, leaving a good deal sticking out at the back.

In reality it did not make a very good armoured car. It was too big, too unwieldy and slow while the crew got a rough ride on solid tyres. However it was durable and quite a few were still in service when the Second World War began. Peerless armoured cars saw service in Ireland, as food convoy escorts in London during the General Strike and with Royal Tank Corps Territorial Armoured Car Companies.

During painting in 1984 number 5035-CF was found below radiator flap and 31 on offside door.

Vehicle chassis is the standard 2.5 ton Peerless TC4 chassis and the armoured body an Austin design of 1918. Drive to rear wheels is by sprocket and chain. First car to have controls duplicated at back so allowed the vehicle to reverse easily in an emergency. Used in Irish Civil War, 7 of them handed over to National Army after treaty of 1921. These remained in service until 1934. After this the armoured bodies and guns utilized on locally produced AFVs.

427 Cobra engine compartment, from starboard (passenger in USA) side, aka "right". You can see the hose from the header tank to the radiator close and across the bottom of the photo, and the hoses to and from the oil cooler and filter far and high-up in the photo. Look carefully and you'll see that 1) the radiator is raked back 2) there's a BIG space between it and the engine.

Hence the slightly wonky gear-shift which sprouts out of the tunnel back by your hip- the engine was pushed back until the weight distribution was 50:50 or as close as they could manage. Nice. Very nice.
