That is the Ferret armoured car, also commonly called the Ferret Scout car.

I'd like to call it mine.

I've always loved the little Ferret recon vehicles. I've always thought it would be cool to have an early Mk1 with no turret and an open top.

That is definitely in the Ferret lineage, but the extension between the hull and turret is different.

Edit: I cheated and looked in my Encyclopedia of Modern Military Weapons
Looks to be the Daimler Ferret Mk 2/2, which was developed locally in the Far East (Thailand?) with the extension to give the commander improved all around vision
