For sale is my Bedford CF2 250D ice cream van (1985).
This vehicle is a scoop (pun intended) of British ice cream van history.
We used the van this summer for a one summer Marketing exercise for our own ice cream brand. Now looking for a good home for it to start its next chapter.
We put a lot of effort into bringing this van into the modern world but keeping as much of the original parts was at the forefront of our thinking. It still has its original vintage Carpigiani soft serve machine which still works a charm.Also still works off the engine.
Original freezer and fridges still in top working order.
Original horn and jingle system still works with 4 pre set jingles.
Engine still works but like any other vintage ice cream van I would highly recommend only driving it around very short distances. We use a trailer to take the ice cream van to our destinations and drive it only once at site.
Indoor LED lights to save electricity off the battery
Alternator was fixed
New battery for engine installed
New leisure battery installed
Inverter installed to allow constant charging of batteries and charging via 240v plug socket.
Water system re-organised and allows for hot and cold water.
New water tanks installed.
Ice cream lights fitted to the front of the van
Resprayed in May 2016
New radio installed
New speakers installed to allow music to play outside to attract customers.
Sound proofing around the engine area as much as possible to reduce noise inside.
Plug sockets inside to allow the charging of phones etc.
Storage door locks replaced so they actually work.
This van is a strong talking point and will stand out from the crowd. That is why we bought it and worked with great effect.
The van is in full working order but like any old vehicles it has some wear and tear.
