Hello

Hello! Thought I'd better introduce myself...well after loving CF's from afar since the 1970's I have finally managed to buy one....a 1975 ice cream van! The wife (mrs Whippy!) wanted to get a classic ice cream van to start a business and I explained it has to be a Bedford....one finally came up and it has been substantially restored. I'll try to attach pics but I warn you, I.T. is not my forte.

the only slight grumble (not really that but, you know!) is that the number plates are not original - black and silver were changed to whte /yellow with black digits in 1973 but I think it looks quite sweet.

Very nice. I saw this one for sale. Hope it will make a nice business for you. It should be a hit at classic rallies or country shows.

Perhaps they want an ice cream ?

My puppy seems to have perfected the whippy shape already. It's just a pity it's usually on the carpet
It's probably just my weird sense of humour but when ever I see a Mr Whippy van I just expect the van to be full af whips and chains and person inside to be dressed in leather
