I wonder how this one ended in Canada...

The British Army has a tank training area in Canada, so perhaps trucks from there are sold off locally when they're withdrawn.

Anyway, the owners of this one say it's a Reynolds Boughton RB44:

It is a Reynolds Boughton RB44 (and not a Dodge or Renault). Reynolds Boughton have a history of producing 4x4s for the military and fire services and buying cabs in; a previous version of the RB44 used the Ford A-series cab. Presumably they switched to the Dodge cab when the A-series was no longer available.

Well it is not so far from that, since they kept the Renault badge on their vehicles :D
On the Wikipedia page about the Dodge/Renault 50 Series there is a picture of a very similar vehicle mentioned as being Renault 50 Series from the British army, is that one misidentified or did both exist?

Also, if you look at the connected Dodge 100 page (link at bottom of the page mentioned above), there's a picture that shows a 100 with both a Renault badge and a Dodge badge. So, these models were (in some markets) marketed under both brands at the same time.

Further, in Mexico, there are a couple Hyundai models sold in Dodge dealers, but with the Hyundai badges still on them.

For many years, in different markets, Dodge has sold other brand's models, without placing the Dodge name on them.

They were sold here as both as Renault bought Dodge Trucks in the mid eighties.

This however, is a completely unrelated vehicle that puts the Renault 50 cab on a 4wd chassis.

It is odd that a company named Reynolds built trucks with Renault cabs. Always amused me.

Sure, it is because Renault bought Dodge UK.
We have a few of these: /vehicles.php?make=Dodge-Renault&model=

Funny indeed, I did not think about that, Reynolds<>Renault :D

@Antoine: R-B kept the Renault lozenge on the grille (probably to keep costs down), but put their own badge on it: see their website: http://www.reynolds-boughton.com/military-gallery.asp . And the picture on Wikipedia shouldn't be there; the cab is the only Renault/Dodge-sourced part. Reynolds-Boughton make the chassis themselves, and the engine comes from Perkins.

Maybe it would be good that someone edits the article to mention the existence of Reynolds then (and change the legend of the picture)
