Would anyone have any insight on the history of this car?

I found a similar one in the book "The Golden Years of Tin Toy Trains" but the proportions are different.

*Maybe the one pictured is a Gauge 1 and mine a Gauge 0. Is this why? 

There's also no Bing markings on it.

Yes, it's Bing.  As you noted the dimensions are different because of the gauge.  The 1900 catalog cut has the same care listed.  9692/0 35mm Spurweite 8.5 cm lang - per Stuck MK - .66..  The description is "Packwagen mit Bremserhauschen mit Schiebethuren - feinst lackirt."  There's a few umlauts over some of the letters which I can't seem to make happen in this post but that's the general idea. The car is also listed in my 1906 catalog.  

 

  Addendum - Schiffmann Sammlerkatalog Band 5 for Bing O gauge lists the car coming in brown and in the color of yours the production dates are 1899-1907. Shiffmann gives the length as 9.5 cm.
