Our fleet of vintage ice cream and catering vehicles
Passionate about vintage vans
What began as a passion has become an obsession. When procuring a vehicle for our fleet, we apply a stringent quality assurance process to ensure the vehicle will be an authentic and reliable base for our restoration work.
Bringing a vintage vehicle back to life takes a lot of time, dedication and perseverance. The process is a labour of love for us - it has to be the best or nothing at all if it's going to be part of our fleet.
When renovating the vehicle, we are not trying to simply style the vehicle; we aim to restore the vehicle as closely as possible to its original state. This requires extensive work by specialist restorers and coachbuilders.
Below is a selection of some of the vehicles in our fleet. Each of the vans below has been tailor made for their site although we have others available for hire. For more images, see our gallery page »
Hugo is the first French built vehicle to be added to our fleet. The Citroen HY van dates back to the 1920s. Hugo is now a catering unit selling Dingley Dell farm sausages
Our very first fully restored vintage van is affectionately known as Daisy. Now located on the courtyard at the British Museum, she sells Callestick Farm ice cream.
The aristocratic Sir Asquith is a 1920s styled catering van that sits alongside Daisy in the courtyard of the British Museum selling freshly made crepes.
Our second Bedford CA van is called Annie. She was born in the 60s and has definitely preserved her young looks, although we can't promise she hasn't had any surgery!
The beautiful Beau is Hugo's cousin. With her bold paintwork and wooden interior, she gets plenty of admiring glances. It took a whole year to restore her from bare metal.
Born in 1968, Jeffery is the most masculine of the Bedford CAs in our fleet. He spent some time with the team at the British Museum before setting out on a solo career.
